We did not experience any acceleration or separation. This fragrance was slow to come to a very light trace and held there for a while. After 24 hours, the soap was still too soft to remove from the mold so we allowed an additional 3 days before removing. The soap had only gelled in a small, quarter-sized circle in the center of our loaf. There was a very light yellow discoloration and the scent was quite strong. After 30 days, the soap was still a very light yellow color but the scent had faded slightly. The discoloration can easily be fixed with titanium dioxide. Citrus scents typically do fade in cold process soaps but you may find adding kaolin clay to your soap will help the scent last longer. This would be an ideal fragrance for vibrant colors and intricate swirl designs that require a very light trace.

I make a lot of orange scented soaps, and I was getting tired of the usual orange, even from different companies. I tried them all. After a while I almost considered stopping using citrus altogether, I think I was ‘burned out’ on orange fragrance. But then I discovered this…. I can’t even explain how much I love this citrus fragrance. It’s not heavy but is very distinctly fresh orange with a sweet twist. But not a sickly sweet, fresh, like spring. I’m putting it in my deos now too. Just love love love this fragrance.

A surprisingly delightful scent! I love it in my cp soap and cannot wait to use it in my soy wax melts. Everyone loves this fragrance, it’s strong and it smells like grass and citrus.

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on Citrus Agave! It is not lip-safe, unfortunately, as we don't currently carry any lip-safe fragrance oils. You may be able to use a citrus essential oil instead, though! You can find which oils are lip-safe by checking the IFRA certificate linked on the product page. Category 1 covers lip products and provides a maximum safe usage level for a certain oil. Citrus Agave has a maximum of 0%, so it's not safe for lip products. Essential oils like Pink Grapefruit and Orange (Sweet) can be used in lip products, though, so we'd definitely recommend checking those out.

We hope this helps! Please feel free to reach out to [email protected] if you have any further questions.

My best seller but…

This citrus agave is by far my best seller but I make car fresheners and I WISH it was diffuser base compatible. Can anyone tell me why it’s not?

Absolutely amazing!

We have had this scent in our collection since we started our candle collection. It is always one of our top selling scents from our collection of over 10 scents! Customers rave about it! That said, it did take a LOT of testing to get the scent throws and burn to be right. It does tend to discolor and be temperamental, but so worth the extra work. Our customers don't seem to mind the discoloration at all.
