Finally! A Vanilla I LOVE.
I thought I would never find that perfect vanilla. They were always too sweet or had a weird final bitter note at the end. This is finally the one. It is smooth and creamy without being sickly sweet. It's just a wonderful, straight vanilla that's warm without giving you a headache. I love it and I'm here to order more. Thank you! P.S. A final mixing note - I just put this in a lotion recipe with BB's Amber Fragrance Oil. YUM!

Loving Vanilla Select
Made cold press, melt and pour and hot press and I love the scent, but I was wondering if I could use more than 2oz per 6lb. batch and how much? Tried calc but not sure how to use it in adding more EO: I have not tried fragrance oils yet. Still learning. Thanks BB love your products.

Hi Terry! If you prefer a strongly scented soap, you can certainly add more fragrance oil. The general recommendation for fragrance oils is .7 ounces of fragrance oil, per pound of cold process soap, and .5 ounces of fragrance oil per pound of melt and pour soap. You may find this blog post helpful, it goes more into depth regarding how to use the fragrance calculator, and lists the general usage rate for various projects. You can certainly blend essential oils and fragrance oils, I would use a little bit less than the recommended usage rate for each because you are using both :)

Fantastic Deep Vanilla - Not Sweet - CP Soap
I have purchased two bottles so far. I love vanilla and am happy with this strong and not sweet vanilla. I have use it alone and in blends, with a chocolate, with an amber. Today I see it says it has phthalates. I either never noticed that or it was recently added. I have been trying to avoid phthalates due to the health problems they can cause with hormone disruption, early puberty in children and thyroid problems in children and adults. Oh no! Now what? I just downgraded my rating to a 4 due to this issue. I wish you could find a formula without phthlates.

Hi Christine! I'm glad you enjoy this fragrance. A large majority of our fragrances are phthalate-free.You can find a list of phthalate free fragances on our help page. If you are looking for another vanilla fragrance that is phthalate free, you might enjoy the Vanilla Tahitian Fragrance Oil, or the Vanilla Oak Fragrance Oil!

I Love This One
So good I almost called it Es Oil. I prefer using Es oils to make my spiritual goods. Sometimes we need to substitute 1 or 2 ingredients and this is the closest i have found to the real sent. I am happy to call my business a brambleberry customer.

Vanilla Select
I am not a vanilla fan but had so many requests for a vanilla soap that i finally picked this one based on the reviews. I LOVE this fragrance and have sold more bars of Vanilla Select than anything else. I do melt and pour and the soap does discolor to a tan so I have been adding red color and end up with a deep, deep red color when it is done turning. The fragrance is a warm buttery vanilla, not that horrible fake vanilla smell that so many vanilla things have. I prefer essential oils, but will continue to use this fragrance, and have to admit, I am even using the Vanilla Select soap myself. :)
