I used this in cold process soap and it was a dream! No acceleration or ricing, not sure about discoloration yet since I just made it today. I soap at room temp to help with slowing trace. It smells amazing out of the bottle and still smells wonderful in the soap. I got a few drops on my table and my studio smells so good. This is the perfect fall apple and spice scent. I think it will be a hit! Certainly recommend!
