Cold Process Soap Performance

Light Tan

Lye Water Temperature 100ºF (37.8°C)
Oil Temperature 100ºF (37.8°C)

We experienced a moderate amount of acceleration and slight separation. This fragrance was a little tricky to work with, once we added the lye water to the fragranced oils it was easy to see the water separating from the oils. We made a few quick pulses with the stick blender and found large chunks of soap batter forming while a lot of free oil remained. It appeared to resemble dumpling soup! We hand-stirred with the stick blender until we saw that the batter started to smooth out and the separation of oils was slowly stopping. We made two more quick pulses with the stick blender to ensure we had a good trace and the separation had stopped. We reached a nice thick trace but it still appeared lumpy. We slowly hand-stirred and found the batter started to smooth out. The soap poured easily into the mold and didn’t stiffen while we scraped the last amount into the mold. After 24 hours the soap had discolored to a very light tan and the scent was strong. The soap almost reached a full gel. After 30 days, the soap discoloration remained at a very light tan and the scent remained strong. The discoloration was so light it could easily be covered by adding titanium dioxide to your soap.

I gave 4 stars because I haven’t used it on it’s own. But I’ve used it as a mixer with scents and it’s great! Gave some very relaxing beautiful scents !!!

Surprised ish

Only been a few hours however.... We will see.

New to this I wanted to make my own defuser and I wanted to know what's in it.

I mixed this with ***Grapefruit and Mangosteen*** and it smells amazing so far. And I got the defuser sticks from candle science.

Expected to last longer

Testing reed diffusers and a month later there is very little scent. Using 25% and it was pretty light to start out. You have to be pretty close and does not fill a room. Plenty of liquid still in the bottle a month later, so not an evaporation problem. But to smell anything you have to put your nose right at the mouth of the bottle. Flipping the reeds doesn't help. Really like the scent, but these should last 3-4 months.

Smells good but not good for cold soap

I would have loved to give the 5 stars. It smells great out of the bottle, but unfortunately does not work well for cold soap. Had to scrap our batch. Will not purchase again.

Sweet Green Scent!!

Green, fresh, and clean. I've smelled Himalayan Bamboo before, but its not like the others. I think of spa-like with this one ☝️ . It is a little sweet but I explain it as a "green sweet" scent. Definitely love!!!

Fresh & Clean

This is a beautiful fresh and clean scent that performs wonderfully in CAC wax and provides amazing hot throw. It’s beautiful on its own and even better blended. My favorite blend was w Orange Blossom.

Green, sweet and clean

I use 6% in 464 candles, 2 week cure. It’s so great for a fresh air scent! It has that fresh plant smell but not a dirt scent. Very clean and fresh. Unexpected plant scent

For CP soap...

The scent is amazing and stays very strong. Just be aware that it did rice and accelerate for me. It was fine as I was doing shampoo bars and that recipe is different from my standard recipe. I was easily able to blend it out. Don't hesitate to try it - the smell is worth it - just be prepared in case in acts up in your recipe.
