Find out how much of this scent to use
Plumeria: This is a tropical fruit scent that is great for spring. The smell makes you want to wander onto the nearest plane and go island hopping. It's a sweet ambrosial nectar that is sure to please the most discerning nose. A great addition to any collection! A recent customer wrote to tell us that, "The box [the order came in] smelled soooooo good! I haven't smelled Plumeria FO that I've liked yet, so I'm happy to report that I definitely liked yours." For CP Soapers, this scent moves quickly so be prepared to pour into molds in a hurry.
Try this easy Plumeria blend from Karen Gonzales: "I use equal parts of sweet orange essential oil and plumeria fragrance oil. I call it, Island Paradise. It was an instant best seller!"
Note: Thickens and clouds liquid soap.

I've always enjoyed plumeria, as both a bloom and a fragrance. So, for my second batch of liquid bath soap I scented with the Plumeria fragrance. (my wife insisted on the first experiment being with her favorite: Lavender - and I DO subscribe to the Yes Dear club...).
I was happy to see that the noted cloudiness was not at all pronounced in my corn oil-based soap. Nor was the thickening a problem. My soap has a pleasing, to me, viscosity; well short of a gel. It's easily dispensed with the pump bottles I grabbed on eBay.
So far, a great experience in soap making. And, thanks to BB for very solid products.
This fragrance oil smells delightful! It sells very well and everyone requests it when I run out!
It is an ornery fragrance to work with. It accelerates so fast you don't have too much time to work with it. But I find it is worth it because it sells so well :)
I am not much of a floral scent lover. This is the exception. Smells amazing. Sticks in CP soap! I was prepared for it to move fast but was still able to do a 5 color swirl!!! I am so happy I ordered this scent!!
I am quite disappointed... Not sure what went wrong this time as I've used this fragrance a few times previously with No issues at all.
This time I made a larger batch, about 14 lbs of cp soap and was going to do a hangar swirl but barely had time to get the batter in my molds before a complete seize
I mixed to a verrry light trace, separated some out for 3 Colors then added my scent to the balance of my batter. I whisked the fo in and it was still quite thin when starting the pour into mold but it thickened so quickly that no hangars swirl was going to happen!
I previously had inserted a divider so very quickly poured the other colours in but have no idea how it will turn out until I unmold this afternoon The temps of oil was 108 and lye was about 115F. Would this difference in temp been enough to cause my problem?
I love this scent and so do all my friends and customers. I have been using BB's scents and products for quite a while now and have to say this is my first bad ti
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Lu! I'm so glad you love our Plumeria Fragrance Oil. Though, I'm sorry you had troubles soaping with it. As noted on the product page, in our tests and recipes this fragrance oil did accelerate. To help slow this 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.
I used this fragrance in my CP soaps and it has been one very popular scent. I love it, everyone loves it!
