Find out how much of this scent to use
This fragrance was reformulated April 2016, and is now phthalate free!
Ocean Rain Fragrance Oil: This isn't your average rain type of scent with floral notes; rather, this Rain is a clean, crisp scent, with notes reminiscent of Ocean type scents but not entirely and Ocean either! Is a great unisex scent that says "I'm Refined! I'm Bracing! I'm Cool!"
Performance in Cold Process Soap: This fragrance accelerates and can rice in cold process soap. It does not discolor.

I recently used this in a HP salt bar recipe. The wife LOVED the smell of it!!! It was actually a stronger scent than I expected, but I too really like the aroma! I had no issues with acceleration (HP.) The only thing I feel worth noting is that I let this sit in the loaf overnight. Salt bars harden fast and this was no exception. The kicker is that I noticed the loaf has a "sweat" around it. As I cut each bar the "sweat" was still noticeable on both sides of each bar. It seemed to be the FO possibly not soaked all the way in so I was somewhat worried. It is going on its 2nd week and all bars are dry and the FO is still at a great level. Time will tell how well it sticks, but I dont think it will stick around long. The wife has her friends ordering this from me left and right!
I use this in my castile recipe and it soaps perfect for me :)
I wasn't sure about this one OOB, but it's awesome in the soap! I took the reviews
I loved this scent! I think it has an invigorating clean awakening effect. Wonderful and had no problems with accelerating.
I am so done with this FO. I only tried it again because I have a customer that loves it and wanted 2 loaves. Next time, I will say, "NO".
I feel like I should make this one with blue and green colors, like the ocean, but there is no time to do anything like that. I have had to throw away batches. To make it work, I have to make the layers as separate batches. I will try mixing the FO with oils as I have done with prior misbehaving FOs. What a pain in the butt! It's not worth it.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Kathy! I'm sorry you don't like working with this fragrance. The Ocean Rain Fragrance Oil does accelerate trace, but we still love its unique, clean scent and find it totally worth it! To help slow the acceleration down, take 1 oz. (basically equal amounts of fragrance oil to fixed oil) liquid oil out of your recipe and heat it up to 100 degrees. Then, add your fragrance into this oil. This simply dilutes the fragrance oil’s initial acceleration. You can also add the oil/fragrance mixture earlier than usual. Rather than adding the fragrance at a thick trace, you can add it at the first sign of thin trace. Always hand stir the fragrance/oil mixture in with a fork/ladle and never, ever use a hand 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. If it does start to rice you can try using your stick blender to help smooth the soap out as seen in the Soap Behaving Badly blog post. If you want to stay away from this fragrance but need another ozone scent you may like Sea Moss Fragrance Oil, Kentish Rain Fragrance Oil, or Fresh Snow Fragrance Oil.
