Way too strong

I followed Anne-Marie's recipe for Buttermilk Honeycombs in "Pure Soap Making" and was so excited because this soap was part of a Christmas present. While I LOVE the soap, I do NOT like the scent of Karma. Way too spicy, and very heavy on the Patchouli (which I normally love). I'll definitely be using this recipe again, except with another more subtle scent like Oatmeal Milk and Honey. Noticed they are discontinuing anyway.

Energizing

Leaves a nice 'spicey' scent in CP soap. Even after several months.

Perfect!

I love this scent! I use it in my Tattoo Balm and have been told that it is addictive. Most of the essential oils that make up "Karma" have beneficial properties so, not only is the scent interestingly complex, it serves a purpose when used in balms or salves.

FO in Cold Process Soap

This FO did slightly accelerate in CP. We did a three color in the pot swirl and it was little difficult to accomplish. However this did not rice or discolor our soap. This FO smells very earthy and warm with the mix of EO’s and has kept a strong smell in our soap over the past 6 weeks.

Hi Maria and Bessi! I'm so glad you liked the scent of our Karma Essential Oil and it held well in your soap! I'm sorry it was difficult to soap with. In our tests and recipes, we did experience mild acceleration with this essential oil. To help slow this down, take 1 oz. (basically equal amounts of essential oil to fixed oil) liquid oil out of your recipe and heat it up to 100 degrees. Then, add your essential oil into this oil. This simply dilutes the essential oil's initial acceleration. You can also add the oil/essential oil mixture earlier than usual. Rather than adding the essential oil at a thick trace, you can add it at the first sign of thin trace. Always hand stir the essential oil/oil mixture in with a whisk and avoid using a stick 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.

Not a fan

I'm not sure if I'm just not into this type of scent, but I found it overwhelming. I suppose I was expecting a balance of scents but I could only smell the patchouli. I'm going to try and use this for beard oils.
