Sandalwood Vanilla: Customers have been asking us for years to come up with a Sandalwood Vanilla blend that is sweet and creamy yet woodsy enough to use as a man's fragrance. Our Sandalwood Vanilla smells different in cold process soap than in the bottle. It's warm and inviting in soap, and of course, discolors soap brown because of the Vanilla content. Straight out the bottle, there are more powder notes that are not present in the finished product. Be prepared to move fast while using this fragrance, it will accelerate trace quite quickly and can seize at higher temperatures.
Flashpoint: 200ºF +
Vanilla Content: 4.5%

Hi Jo! The Sandalwood Vanilla Fragrance Oil will accelerate trace quite quickly, but there are a couple of things you can do to help that out. Use a recipe that is high in Olive Oil (doesn't trace as quickly), and keep your temperatures down around 90-100 degrees Fahrenheit. These factors can definitely help to slow down trace so that you can work with your soap.
