Grapefruit and Mangosteen Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

A true-to-life blend of ripe, tangy grapefruit and mangosteen- an exotic fruit that is citrusy and sweet with a hint of peach. This fragrance has a bright, punchy character out of the bottle that mellows just a bit in wax, with a slight creaminess that keeps it balanced. The fragrance reaches equilibrium while burning, with both fruits meld into a strong, bright fragrance with a hint of peach and a naturally derived sweetness.

Cold process soap makers will be happy to see that, unlike its predecessor, the revised version of Grapefruit and Mangosteen behaves well in cold process recipes. 

This fragrance is infused with natural essential oils, including orange.

Candle Maker's Note: For years, we've tested dozens of grapefruit fragrances and we haven't been impressed. We put lots of research and development into figuring out why the chemistry just doesn't work. This fragrance is the result of all that work. While it is a 2/3 in soy (just leaves us room to keep trying), it is the best we've ever seen, and we think you'll agree.

We experienced slight acceleration and slight separation. Initially, only part of the oils seemed to emulsify. However, once it seemed the entire batch emulsified, we still saw separation of oils and water when we stopped blending. The batch fully emulsified at a medium trace. The batter was fluid at this point, but it started to stiffen as we poured the soap into the mold. After 24 hours, we observed the soap had almost reached a full gel and the scent was strong. After the cut, we noticed several glycerine rivers and the soap was weepy. After 30 days the soap had discolored to a light tan and the scent remained strong.
This fragrance may be easier to work with if added at a very light trace and hand stirred in just before pouring into the mold. A simple layer design that requires a thick trace would be ideal.
