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.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...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.
This has always been my favorite scent I don't soap with it due to cost but I do use it in my own hand cream, butters, shower oil, etc. It's floral without being heavy. Someone here said sensual and I think that describes it very well. Fantastic scent!
This is a very sensual floral essential oil, don't take this one out of stock!
What can I say.... this is just lovely. Add a little pink color to goats milk soap batch with full amount of Ylang Ylang and you have a perfect bar of soap.
Beautiful oil. Fantastic for blending. I noticed no acceleration in cold process. A little goes a long way. Really lovely!
