Find out how much of this scent to use
As of June 2015, this fragrance has been reformulated with an increased usage rate! It still smells as great as before.
Christmas Spice: This seasonal fragrance has everything in it to make you think of potpourri in the fall. With top notes of Orange and Lemons, and a middle full of enticing fragrances such as Cinnamon, Mocha, Thyme and Nutmeg, this fragrance is perfect for the spice-lover on your list. Christmas Spice cools down to a sweet note of Candied Ginger and Cinnamon Sugar. This fragrance does accelerate trace in soap (it's the Cinnamon) and discolors to a tan.
Vanilla Content: 2%
Liquid Castile Testing Notes: We tested this fragrance in our liquid Castile soap base, we recommend making a small test batch just to be sure you like the results. Initially goes yellow, cloudy when mixed. Final soap is see through, discolors to light brown.
This fragrance is phthalate free.
Flashpoint: This medium-flashpoint oil (170ºF) cannot ship via USPS regardless of the shipping method you choose at checkout.

I used Sodium Lactate at the rate of 1 tbsp per # of oil, and the Christmas Fragrance. I should have read a little closer, as my soap immediately went from medium trace to a gloppy mess, like firm mashed potatoes. I spooned everything in a silicone mold and had a full gel process. I didn't really want that, as I was making goat milk soap. It turned out, but I held my breath for two days.
Good scent OOTB but faded in my cold process soaps, definitely use more than the fragrance calculator suggests. Quickly accelerated race to thick pudding, even soaping at 100°F. A good fragrance, just faint.
This is one of my best sellers for Christmas!reminds me of spice cookies.i love it!its a must to have!
Hello, I am running quite late for my holidays products, so I wanted to do a Melt & Pour with this fragrance. As general rule, should I expect the same discoloration in M&P as in CP? Or the discoloration only happens because of the lye? if so, how much color stabilizer should I use?
BtW, Scent smells very good in the bottle
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Virginie! I'm so glad you like the smell of our Christmas Spice Fragrance Oil. If a fragrance discolors in cold process soap it will also discolor in melt & pour soap. This can be easily remedied by using Vanilla Color Stabilizer at a 1:1 ratio with your fragrance.
So I just made a 2 lb CP loaf using Christmas spice and cinnamon/sugar fragrance oils. I was expecting fast acceleration, so didn't use colors or swirls, but I actually had time whereas I could have done so! The fragrance is delicious and a hit with family and friends. I love it and will be making more loaves with colors and swirls asap!!
