I did have trouble with the "weeping" as mentioned by other reviewers. I noticed a few drops of oil beading out of the soap. It didn't do it on all my batches so think you just have to be careful and make sure you get this fo totally mixed in. This scent was a top seller for me and it really sticks in cp soap!
Having a blast tonight making halloween MP soaps. I made tiny pumpkins with this. I haven't tried this in CP, but it hasn't darkened terribly in MP for me in the past. Don't need to use much for a strong scent, and that is probably why. Such a nice, well rounded, fall fragrance.
Received a sample. Bought a bottle and now I'm ready to buy another bottle. This smells devine. A definate must have for the fall season.
This worked well in my recipe, though I see others who said it did not. The scent stays well so far- 3 weeks into a cure. Glad i purchased.
It smells great - no doubt about that! However, I used it in a batch of soap just recently for my fall lineup and it got weirdly weepy. I figured it would be fine once it set up. No, it got worse. When I unfolded it the bottom has dark brown syrupy liquid and a sandpaper like texture. I'm not a soap professional but have been making regularly for over a year and I've never had a batch do this. The other batches made the same day with my same recipe turned out beautifully, leading me to believe that this fo is the problem. Such a shame since it does smell nice! Now I've wasted the money on it and also the supplies for the batch that I'm not sure what to do with.
Kelsey from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Katie! I'm so glad you think our Pumpkin Spice Fragrance Oil smells great. However, I'm sorry you had trouble working with it. In our tests and recipes, we never experienced any weepiness or separation with this scent, though Pumpkin Spice is known to accelerate trace. I'm wondering if it moved so fast that the fragrance oil did not get blended in all the way, causing the soap to weep. For more information on this and how to deal with separation, check out our Soapy Mess-Up Quick Guide and Soap Behaving Badly blog posts. If it did separate, you can use the Hot Process Hero Method to emulsify the batch.
