Lavender & Cedar Fragrance Oil: This masculine fragrance has bold aromatic notes of camphor and cedarwood with crushed pine tips and lavender buds. The camphoric character of this fragrance does tend to fade in cold process soap giving way to the less prominent lavender and pine notes. This is a great fragrance for all year round but this is also the perfect fragrance if you're looking to bring a bit of the outdoors in during the winter and fall months! We recommend pairing this fragrance with Sleigh Ride or Autumn Fig Harvest fragrance oils for a sweeter fragrance blend.
Performance In Cold Process Soap: This fragrance can cause slight acceleration in cold process soap.
Flashpoint: This medium-flashpoint oil (170ºF) cannot ship via USPS regardless of the shipping method you choose at checkout.

I got this FO as a sample a while ago, and truthfully, it sat because I prefer to soap with EO. FOs tend to make me itchy and stuffed up. I decided to make a batch of cocoa butter soap scented with Lavender and Cinnamon Leaf for Christmas and ran out of Lavender EO. In a pinch, I supplemented with about a tablespoon of the Lavender and Cedar FO in a 40 oz CP Soap batch with about an ounce of EOs that I had premixed. I was skeptical because out of the bottle the FO smelled a bit perfumey! The soap has been cut and fully cured, and I have to say, I love the blend! It is warm and clean and perfect for a Unisex scent. Thank you, and I will probably try other FOs now too!
This is an absolutely amazing fragrance oil (that smells so realistic one would swear it is an EO blend!). I have used it in both CP and HP as well as lotion - candles are next :)
If I were to describe this scent, it is herb-y like lavender, woodsy like cedar, and camphorous like it contains eucalyptus, as well. I have to agree with another person who stated that this oil is very spa-like. I label my products as 'Stress Relief' because of the aromatic properties and the effects it tends to have on all who smell it - but I also think it could be paired with a sinus relief bath tea for winter relief.
I don't enjoy the smell of lavender but with the cedar this is a very pleasant smell to me. I have sold through three batches of this soap immediately. Apparently everyone else likes it too!!!
To me this is a very relaxing and spa like fragrance. Much like Rosemary and Eucalyptus. Love this. I made the Sea Clay swirl...to dye for. I just ordered a large bottle of this. Worked great in CP, no color change or ricing. No acceleration at all. I do work at lower temps, Lye 95 oils 105. Will buy again. Update, This bar flew off the shelves this weekend, only wish I had made more bars.
The bottle should be labeled as FRAGRANCE OIL on the front next to the Lavender/Cedar label so people can clearly see it's a fragrance oil. For someone with chemical sensitivity thinking it's an essential oil (versus a fragrance oil) could send them to the hospital!
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Sonya! Thank you so much for your feedback. We now have updated labels that do denote if the scent is a fragrance oil versus essential oil.
