Orange Peel Powder - Commonly used in bath teas, face scrubs and masks or body powder, this powder smells wonderful!
Ingredients:Botanical Name: Citrus SinensisCommon Name: Orange Peel
I received this as a dry sample in my soap order and have been using it in my cold process soaps that have 10x orange EO. I can't smell a thing but never used it for a scent. I like the little specks it gives and the boost of orange color to the 10x Orange essential oil. I'm adding this to my cart now. If it does exfoliate, it's very mild, not something I feel on my skin.
I purchased (2) of these bags for the express use of intensifiing the orange smell in my melt and pour soap.
All went well when I added the orange essential oil but the batch was ruined when I added this orange powder! I thought maybe the orange essential oil would overpower the strong not orange smell of this powder and I could utilize the scrub advantage. The whole batch ceased to smell like orange before I even poured it! wish I could return at least the bag that is unopened for a refund. I only used about a teaspoon from the first bag. don't know what to do with the opened bag because the essential oil will not overcome the bad smell.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Jean! I'm sorry you did not like the scent of this product. We love our Orange Peel Powder and its wonderful exfoliating properties, as well as its smell. Though, the smell can be surprising as it's from the peel which is more bitter. not the sweet, juicy smell of the orange's fruit. We found that the smell is easily overpowered by fragrance and essential oils, especially when used at the "strong" amount from our Handy Dandy Fragrance Calculator.
This stuff is amazing and worked way-better than expected in an orange themed soap I made over the weekend. Everyone loved the soap and it's now a new favorite! In clear bases (like the honey base) - it disperses more evenly than it does for the shea butter M&P - but it looks neat in either one, especially when paired with orange mica and 10X orange oil.
Most of my CP soap has EVOO as the majority oil. Needless to say, most of my batches tend to end up a yelowish tint once the lye mixture is added. This ground orange peel works so very well as an exfoliant but also as a gentle colorant for those of us with frangrance sensitivities. Will order again!!
Orange peel powder is a staple around here! Smells great and adds a beautiful natural color to my hot process soap. Gently exfoliates without being harsh. Try it, you won't be sorry!
