Sweet Pea: Our Sweet Pea is delicate and yet strong enough to hold up in Cold Process soap. The Mediterranean Sweet Pea has Pineapple and Plumeria top notes to add a subtle and cheery sweetness to the blend. Sweet Pea also has Strawberry and Clover middle Notes and is rounded out with a deep Creamy Musk and Sandalwood for staying power.

Reply from Bramble BerryHi Ashley! I'm so glad you love the smell of our Sweet Pea Fragrance Oil! Though, I'm sorry it accelerated so much on you. In our tests and recipes we did find this fragrance resulted in mild acceleration, which is common for floral-type scents. 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 110 to 115 degrees. This will help to keep your mixture more liquid than at a lower temperature. If it does start to rice you can try using your stick blender to help smooth the soap out as seen in the Soap Behaving Badly blog post. I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!
