I used this fragrance in a Sea Salt soap, with additional ingredients as powdered kelp and sea clay. This product smelled great out of the bottle and remained strong after soaping. It behaved beautifully, no problems with ricing or accelaration. We've used this fragrance for a couple of years now and as long as sales support, will be in our top 5 line-up going forward.

Love it, but finicky in CP

Had to SB to resolve ricing in a recent batch and did not realize TD would not lighten up much. However, that won't stop me from using time and again. Thanks for the tips in a previous comment on how to counter some of these issues.

Not a fan at all!

I am not new to soaping, but am only starting to use FO. I normally scent with EO. I wanted to try an oceany scent and thought this one would be really on point. It smelled ok out of the bottle, but it riced and accelerated and discolored in blotches. I tried to rebatch, but that was an epic fail as well. It was a big waste of time and money.

Hi Jennifer! I'm sorry you had trouble working with this fragrance. Sea Moss Fragrance Oil can accelerate and rice in soap, as noted on the product page. To help slow this 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 stick 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 use your stick blender to help smooth the soap, out as seen in the Soap Behaving Badly blog post.

This fragrance is just wonderful. Blended it with Grapefruit Bellini such a good blend. Was an instant success!

Wonderful smell, difficult to work in CP soap

I absolutely love this smell; it is so pleasant! But it moves so so fast in CP soap. I knew about and I was ready to work fast, but it was an immediate seizing, didn't even have time to put the spatula down! However, i was able to soften up the gooey mess with my stick blender, enough to make it a thick pudding consistency that could be poured. Forget about any kind of swirl or pattern in CP, stick to layerin, I would say that's about all you'll be able to do. But I love the smell so much, I will certainly use it again.
