Candy Cane soap
I absolutely loved this peppermint essential oil. I made candy cane soap for Christmas as gifts. The bars were fabulous! They smelled so wonderful, they were a big hit! I love, love, love this scent! Next year I will be making more than this year!

Love this!
I seem to be having a peppermint fetish right now. Almost everything I am making has peppermint! I love this scent. I have not had any acceleration issues with it. In CP soap it has a nice minty scent. Not in your face or bold but very much peppermint. In lotion (I make a blend for feet in particular) it is amazing.

At the beginning of August, I made a sample batch of goat's milk CP soap with this oil used at the "light" recommendation. There is truly no comparing it to the regular peppermint oil. This is so sweet and delicious, and it soaped beautifully. I love it.

Exactly what you'd expect
I've bought peppermint EO from a couple suppliers, with mixed results. This was low price, high quality, and the scent is just strong enough without being too much. It's perfect, and I'll be coming back for more!

Light mint and accelerates trace.
I ordered a good-sized bottle of this and have tried it in a several CP soaps. Although it smells good in the bottle, I didn't find the scent to be strong enough (or at least not what I was looking for) after saponification. I ended up ordering the Peppermint 2nd Distill in a follow up order and that seems to have a bolder mint. Also, in my experience, trace accelerated every time I used the Peppermint Oil, 1st distill - and I mean fast! Working quickly and cleanly, with everything laid out in advance, I barely got to get my batch molded (simple single separator for a vertical stripe) and found trace was already too far to get a good swirl on top, even though when I mixed the oils, I went to emulsion only, then split into two containers for mixing in with the already-saturated oil for color. I even tried it in a batch where I eliminated castor oil, since that can accelerate trace-but it moved right along So, all in all, nice but mild mint scent and be careful about trace acceleration

Hi Jeremy! Thanks for taking the time to leave feedback on this product. In our tests, we did not experience acceleration, I will be contacting you to help troubleshoot why this product may have accelerated in your recipe!
