Green Tea: Long prized in Asian countries for its health benefits, Green Tea is also very favored as a scent. Many of this year's most popular perfumes have a green tea base. Ours is a true-to-scent fragrance oil. This works great in CP soap but has a tendency to cause soda ash.
This fragrance is phthalate free.
Flashpoint: This medium-flashpoint oil (199ºF) cannot ship via USPS regardless of the shipping method you choose at checkout.

This is a nice, fresh scent that pairs well with ginger and bamboo scents. It does not exactly replicate green tea. This oil has good staying power and makes wonderful smelling lotion bars.
I love tea. I REALLY love tea. So I was excited to get this in the mail. I was hoping for a deep, grassy, earthy aroma that comes from Sencha and takes me back to a warm cuppa. That is not what I got. In the bottle, it smells absolutely nothing like green tea. I get a big nose full of pepper and something sweet, but no grassy notes whatsoever. LET DOWN! I tried it in some MP before I committed to CP and it was still sad. I bit the bullet and made a 2 lbs. CP loaf and the smell was still off. I worried that I'd have to figure out a new name for this scent because I could not market it as "Green Tea".
Well, after about 4 weeks of curing, all that terrible smell has gone. My soap actually smells like green tea. A weak cup, but still! TEA! Not as grassy as I would like, kind of reminiscent of green tea sweets and matcha frappuccinos. Slighly sweet but still tea. I can't tell you how happy I am that this worked out! Will definitely be one of my regulars!
I made a 2 1/2 lb batch of cold process soap and used 1 oz of fragrance oil. I usually use more fragrance oil for this amount of soap, however I did not need it. The soap turned out nice and mild, just the way I wanted it.
I don't know what it is with green tea, but most companies make "Green Tea" FO smell like a flower bouquet. So I was really, REALLY happy when I got my bottle, opened it, and smelled a dry, bitter, slightly smokey scent. I picked out a tart note, which I'm not a huge fan of, but I'm pretty sure I can mellow it out once it's added to my lotions. I wouldn't call it true-to-scent, as it's missing the grassy, green notes of a freshly brewed Sencha tea... but it's pretty darned close! I look forward to ordering this again!
I just made this in my Triple Green Tea soap. In fact, I've had the scent for 2 years before making it because to me it smelled like green tea and pepper in the bottle. Well, I bit the bullet and made it today. I used 4 ounces for almost 6 pounds of soap. The scent is so lusciously clean in my soap freshly made. We'll see how it holds up to the test of time and curing, but so far, I give this 5 stars- and my daughter is one happy camper- and so am I! I can see this quickly becoming a best seller.
