Chamomile Tea Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

Pull up a comfy chair and enjoy a cuppa with a good friend and the comforting scent of Chamomile Tea fragrance oil. Top notes of white tea, lemon, and mint spice up a heart of chamomile with a splash of herbal lavender. This inviting scent is rounded off with a hint of cedar and a spoonful of sugar, just like the real thing.

Create inviting candles, wax, melts, or tarts with this cozy scent. Or, take your tea in the tub with soap, scrubs, and lotions.

This fragrance is infused with natural essential oils, including orange peel, clary sage, jasmine, lavandin, lemon peel, spearmint, and oakmoss extract.

We did not experience any acceleration or separation. The oils and water were slow to reach a light trace. We continued stick blending until we reached a medium trace. The batter poured smoothly into the mold. However, we did find the last few bits started to thicken slightly. After 24 hours, the soap was too soft to unmold. We allowed it to sit for an additional 3 days. The soap was still soft and we found a few areas tore while removing it from the mold. We observed that only a golf ball sized area in the center reached gel phase. The bars discolored to a light yellow and the scent was very strong. After 30 days, the scent was pleasantly strong and the bars remained a light yellow.

Don’t judge it oob

Oob it’s weird. Once it hits wax it smells just like a cup of real chamomile tea. It won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, pun intended- but it’s definitely mine and will be for lots of people. I love it

Just burn it.

There's a note or maybe it's the blend of scents that does not smell like chamomile tea out of the bottle or through the cold throw. I could not understand how this was supposed to smell like chamomile tea and was not looking forward to the burn. I let my candle cure and hesitantly lit, ready for a candle fail, this was a candle win. The hot throw smells just like chamomile tea. Burned beautifully in a soy wax blend with a cotton wick.

Smells Horrible

Sample smelled so horrible I threw it away.

I have tried this scent in 2 different combinations in 464 and both times it has immediately tunneled. I love the smell, and I would love to add this to my line, but I just can not get the burn right. If someone from Candle science support could reach out to me, I would appreciate it.

Smells more like a Camel

This one just missed the mark for me. I make and sell my own blend of chamomile tea and work with this ingredient regularly so I know the scent. This was nowhere near the smell and smelled way to earthy.

Unique fragrance. Took time to grow on me. Perfectly captures Summer & Chamomile Tea!

When I first added it to my 464 wax it seemed like an odd fragrance that I couldn’t wrap my head around. Not bad, just odd. Even my initial burn was underwhelming. But I just pulled it out of my cupboard and tried it again after several months of curing. It’s fabulous!!! Smells EXACTLY like a cup of chamomile tea. It has a very unique fragrance that took some time to grow on me, but one of my favorites now. It perfectly captures summer and transports me to a dry field of grass in the Pacific Northwest in the summer where the crickets chirp all day in the warm sun. 464 wax. Added fragrance at 185F. Poured at 140F in a 90F degree prewarmed 8oz canning jar in a cold 65-68F room. Throw is medium. In the summer I pour at 135F in a room temp 72-75F jar.

Surprising!!! Before you judge, test it.

I was excited about this scent and when it arrived I was let down. Out of the bottle all I could smell was DIRT. All though I know fragrances shouldn't be judged OOB, I put it to the side in hopes to destash. My sister asked me to make her some wax melts and knowing that she's a very earthy, free spirited person I went for the Chamomile Tea. To my surprise I was pleasantly pleased. This scent is beautiful. The earthiness mellows out and the sweet, herbaceous aroma of chamomile shows up. I'll actually use this one for my home. Don't knock it until you try it.

Not A Fan

I am so confused on this fragrance. OOB had promise & the first burn smelled like fresh air and flowers. But the second burn it didn't smell that great at all. Chamomile has a very unique scent to begin with and I think CS did a great job of trying to pin down the scent to replicate it. I just can't get behind this one. However, everyone has a different sense of smell, so I'm going to test this with my audience and see how they like it.

It's okay

I'm not the biggest fan of this scent on its own. It doesn't smell exactly like chamomile which is where my disappointment comes in. However, I have tried a few blends with this scent and it smells good blended with floral scents.

My goodness, this FO smells just like chamomile, picked off the plant. It’s earthy, slightly sweet, herbal, it might be my favorite! Hot throw is surprisingly strong in soy wax. This is a winner on the herbal, aromatherapy front.
