Find out how much of this scent to use
Ginger-Lime: Citrus and Ginger scents are hot! Capitalizing on this trend, our blend of Ginger and Lime is comprised of the obvious title notes, as well as some extras to make the mix just a little bit more complex and exciting. Rounding out the marriage of Ginger and Lime are supporting notes of Lemon, Lilly, Grapefruit and a minuscule amount of spice. This fragrance will accelerate trace in cold-process soap just a bit so keep that in mind when soaping with it for the first time.
Vanilla Content: .4%
Liquid Castile Testing Notes: We tested this fragrance in our liquid Castile soap base, we recommend making a small test batch just to be sure you like the results. Can be a little tricky, but take your time mixing, and the final results are great! See through soap, with a hint of yellow.
This fragrance contains phthalates.
Flashpoint: This medium-flashpoint oil (174ºF) cannot ship of USPS regardless of the shipping method you choose at checkout.

I was determined to use this FO, despite the warnings about fast trace. Even though I was only a simple tiger stripe, a seize would still be a minor disaster. The only thing I could think to do to narrow the timing gap was to disperse my colorants, then combine my lye and base oil mix, and then mix all of my separate colors (six of them!)...and then quickly whisk the burnt-off FO into each color split JUST before pouring. And I had no problems! I even had time to sprinkle mica between each pour! It only began to thicken when I got to my last pour. Try that when faced with any FO that is said to go into fast trace...I was thrilled that it worked. I will go back and edit this review when the soap has had time to cure, and let you all know how the fragrance held up.
one of my favorites, although if I did not know the name of the scent I don't think I would be able to identify it.
You can smell the ginger for sure, but the citrus notes take over very quickly and then fade into a pleasant ginger/patchouli base. I have not used this in any soap yet, just tested on a fragrance strip.
I got this fragrance about a year ago and I have yet to use it. I don't smell lime or ginger. It smells more like a laundry or dish detergent. I've had friends and family smell it and the all say the same.
I mixed this half-and-half with Tea Trea EO, and it works well to round off some of the harsher edges of the EO. Did not accelerate for me, but I only used 1 oz of Ginger-Lime (with 1 oz Tea Trea) in 40 oz of soap, diluting the scents in 2 oz of superfatting oils as well.
I would purchase again; I think it would be nice by itself in a shaving soap.
