Separation in CP Soap

I made a 5 lb. batch soap containing goat’s milk, honey and colloidal oatmeal and used this fragrance in it. Soaped at a low temperature and had no issues with overheating and even went by brambleberry’s fragrance calculator, but upon mixing the lye, oils, goat’s milk and honey together, the mixture started to accelerate. I worked quick and added the fragrance oil and colloidal oatmeal and to my surprise the thickness changed to watery thin. I finally got it to reach trace, but as it started hardening, the fragrance oil was sitting on top of the soap. The whole thing was an oily mess and I had to trash it.

Hi Tana! I'm sorry you had troubles soaping with this fragrance. In our testing the Almond Cybilla Fragrance Oil did not accelerate or separate. There can be other reasons for acceleration. For instance, the natural sugars in honey can cause the batch to thicken quickly. Find out more in our Adding Honey to Cold Process Soap blog post. Customer service has contacted you directly to help troubleshoot. :-)

Very Pleasant

Scent performed well in MP. Used the BB recipe maker to get the right amount of fragrance ratio. I like heavy scents so the smells last till the very end of the soap bar.

Great Scent

Loved this scent! I had no issues in my cold process soap. I used a little less than usual and the soap ended up a beautiful honey-tan color. There is definitely a sweet note to this scent, but it ended up being a best seller!

Great almond scent!

Great almond scent! one of my top 2 best sellers for years. Does discolor cold process soap quite a bit in cold process soap - ends up a chocolate brown color by the time it's cured. one time I got a Cherry Almond scent by mistake. It was labeled Cybilla Almond, but the wrong scent was in the container. If you think it smells too much like Cherry, maybe it's the same problem. Their customer service was great - even shipped the correct scent overnight at no charge.

Excellent!

This fragrance is intoxicating! I do smell an undertone of cherries in the soap batch but that doesn't bother me and it adds to the scent, in my opinion. I didn't experience any acceleration or any other problems - it soaped beautifully even with a heavy water discount. Will probably use less next time - it's very strong and a 2 pound batch sitting in my kitchen can be smelled down the hall. I don't see any discoloration but the soap is only about a week old. This is one I will definitely keep in stock.
