Pure Ylang Ylang

I'm personally not a huge fan of Ylang Ylang, but it works well with sweet, feminine FOs. I love mixing a bit of this with the Crisp Apple Rose FO :)

I love it

I received this as a free sample and I check the cost and think it may have been a mistake. Regardless, thank you because this is wonderful. I did a small batch of 100% coconut oil soap and three weeks in, the scent is still strong and the soap is snow white.

Love the added strength!!

OMG this is just so lovely!! I really like the mixture making it a touch stronger!! I mix this with some of BB's Chamomile Cybilla and Orange 10x essential oil and put that in my soaps. What a wonderful scent it makes!!

Lovely

I love to blend this with Jasmine and a citric like orange. The price is fabulous compared to other suppliers of essential oils. Does accelerate but I've never had to much trouble with it when added at light trace or when I use it for hot process soap making. I also love it in a body spray.

Seized

Used 1.4oz in 54 oz of soap and seized my whole batch up within 20 seconds. had no time to pour. Bummed out. My mix was 3 oz castor, 8 oz coc oil, 15 oz olive oil and 11 oz palm. 5.1 oz lye with 12.2 oz water and tablespoon of rose clay.

Hi JP! The Ylang Ylang III Essential Oil definitely can accelerate in cold process soap. 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.
