Waterlily Orange: This beautiful watery floral fragrance is a harmonious blend of fresh herbal greens, lotus and water lily. The top has light peppery twist of bergamot, the heart is a crystalline watery flower and the finishing accord is a graceful woody amber. Despite its floral notes, it is bright and cheery. It performs wonderfully in melt and pour, lotions and bath fizzies. May accelerate trace or cause ricing in cold process. This fragrance was a Fall 2012 S.O.A.P. panel pick.
Note: This medium-flashpoint oil (199ºF) cannot ship via USPS regardless of the shipping method you choose at checkout.

Reply from Bramble BerryHi Rachel! I'm sorry this fragrance wasn't your favorite. We love the watery flower scent in harmony with the citrus and herbal greens. If you're looking for floral fragrances you may like Pikake Flower Fragrance Oil, Amazon Lily & Rain Fragrance Oil, or Eden's Garden Cybilla Fragrance Oil. This fragrance can accelerate trace or cause ricing in cold process soap. 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 discuss this issue!
