Find out how much of this scent to use
Fresh Bamboo: We fell in love with this fragrance at first sniff. The clean scent reminds us of crisp jungle leaves in a damp rainforest. Imagine the smell of wild Bamboo stalks, crisp Aloe and Jasmine Petals with base notes of Vetivert and soft musk mixed together in a refreshing blend. This fragrance has been tested in cold process soap and is recommended for experienced soapers only as it may accelerate trace. If ricing occurs, keep mixing until you reach a smooth consistency.
This fragrance is phthalate free.

This is one of my favorite. I just love the earthy fresh scent!!!
I bought this scent when I had the chance to visit Otion in the fall of 2014 and could smell it in person. I love green herbie scents, and so this was quickly a favorite. Definitely tricky to work with in CP soap. Use low temps, work fast, don't expect time to swirl. I've now made about 100 bars of soap with this scent (I sell, both retail and wholesale). What I've noticed is that it is lovely when first cured, but definitely morphs over time, becoming kind of meh by the time its 2-3 months old. It's like all the top notes that make it so fresh and lovely fade off. I had some Fresh Bamboo soap that was a couple of months old at farmers market and noticed that it had just flat out stopped selling. I happened to have a batch of Fresh Rain at the same time, and that sold much faster. So while I personally prefer Fresh Bamboo to Fresh Rain, as a scent, I think because the Bamboo morphs, I'll be switching to Fresh Rain from here on out.
Bought this based on reviews and made AMAZING body butter! Now on to body spray, lotion and moisturizing body spray! LOVE it!!!
Holy Smells Like Green Heaven In A Bottle! It smells great in the bottle, it smells great in the bowl, it smells great in the soap, it smells great in my bathroom, and my kitchen, and my laundry sink, and my skin, and I can't WAIT to make body butter with this. Fresh, clean, green-exactly what I would imagine a Bamboo Rainforest to smell like. I used it in a melt and pour project-not only do my soaps look beautiful, they smell divine! You really nailed this one Bramble Berry~Thank You!!!
Smelled devine. Mixed like normal, one 2lb loaf, no color or anything. Traced to a solid brick in about a minute. Tried to remelt, but a no go. 2lbs of oils in the garbage.
Set aside 1/4c of oil, added fragrance, mixed rest of oil with lye till slight trace, slowly added FO/oil mix and mixed by hand. Turns out pudding texture and smooth. Easy to pour. We will see how it sets now. Added poppy seeds to an all coconut bar. Fingers crossed.
