The good: love love this scent.
The not-so-good: this scent makes my soap seize up within seconds.
I really want to make this scent work for my soaps because it's amazing, but so far I haven't been able to figure it out. I figure it's got to do with my recipe, but I really don't want to have to change that. I don't have this issue with any other scents, just this one.
THIS IS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER SMELLED IN MY ENTIRE LIFE!!! I can't stop huffing the bottle LOL
Holy separation bat man. I was expecting some acceleration because of the spice notes, so was ready for that (full water, lower temps, mix FO into oils before adding lye, no color or swirls), but just as I started to pour, it started looking like oatmeal. Man I hate that. Did my best to stick blend it in the log mold and squash down into the mold. Like Cedar and Saffron, a difficult FO to work with. I did one with Cybilla Rain at the same time, and while it accelerated, it didn't separate. We'll see how it sells to decide if it is worth buying again (Cedar and Saffron sells really well for me, so that one is - even though I hate working with it).
I adore this oil. My family (I'm outnumbered with 4 boys) love it so much I had to make a room diffuser with it. It's popular with my customers too, I made a 5 lb loaf and I sold out at the pre-sale I hold before me craft season opens up. My only complaint was from a few of the guys who wanted me to make it in a "less pink" bar:) You can't go wrong with this one.
Wow, what an interesting, fabulous scent! Very complex! I was prepared for a fast trace based on what Brambleberry said on this fragrance oil. I soaped (lye water and oils) at about 97 degrees F, used the stick blender to do a few short bursts when I mixed the lye water and oils and then hand stirred the FO in the mixture. Worked GREAT!! I had plenty of time to mix the FO in good and pour in my mold before it started getting thicker. Sprinkled some cranberry seeds and poppy seeds on top.
