Salty Mariner: This is a fragrance reminiscent of upscale living. Salty marine notes and fresh rain mingle with lily of the valley, jasmine, leafy greens, pine and musk. Experience the beautifully mastered essence of the thunder of waves crashing against the shore, the salty air in your face and the soft crunch of seashells beneath your feet. Imagine yourself at sea, with your face being lightly sprinkled with ocean spray. Like an angry sea, this fragrance does have a more powerful side; it accelerate trace in cold process soap so be prepared for it to move quickly.

Reply from Bramble BerryHi Steve! In our tests and recipes, this fragrance did accelerate. To help slow this down, take 1 oz. (basically equal amounts of fragrance oil to fixed oil) liquid oil out of your recipe and heat it up to 100 degrees. Then, add your fragrance into this oil. This simply dilutes the fragrance oil’s initial acceleration. You can also add the oil/fragrance mixture earlier than usual. Rather than adding the fragrance at a thick trace, you can add it at the first sign of thin trace. Always hand stir the fragrance/oil mixture in with a fork/ladle and never, ever use a hand blender for problem oils. Lastly, raise your temperatures to about 120 to 125 degrees. This will help to keep your mixture more liquid than at a lower temperature. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this issue!
Reply from Bramble BerryHi Lindsey! I'm sorry this fragrance wasn't your favorite. In our tests and recipes it did accelerate trace. Stick blending will help smooth out the ricing, as seen in the Soap Behaving Badly post. I'll be emailing you personally to talk more!

Patti participated in the “Crazy Sexy Vegan Cleanse,” that I coordinated in 2012, which involved no meat, sugar, dairy, gluten, alcohol or coffee. During this cleanse, Patti discovered lacto-fermentation of vegetables. This discovery soon developed into a hobby, which has now turned into a […]
