Relax and unwind with the aromas of fragrant incense in our Nag Champa fragrance oil. A top note of powder opens up to warm amber with hints of floral rose and lily of the valley. Sandalwood and patchouli blend with dark musk and woody violet in the base.

This fragrance is infused with natural essential oils, including patchouli and geranium.

We did not experience any acceleration or separation. Overall this fragrance was very easy to work with but noticed the batter came to a light trace quickly but was slow to get to a medium trace. After 24 hours, the soap discolored to yellow and the scent was strong. There was no sign of the soap going through a gel phase. After 30 days, the soap had discolored to brown and the scent remained strong. Due to the discoloration, this would be an ideal fragrance to portion out some of the batter and add titanium dioxide to create some color contrast within the soap.

Bring back the old version

Nothing like the original!

The New Nag Champa is not the same

The new Nag Champa is not the same at all. I still have a bottle of the old scent so I was able to compare side by side and the new one has a sweet, cloying note that is pretty off-putting. I won't be making candles with this. If you've never smelled the old one, then I guess you're good to go, but just know it doesn't smell like nag champa incense anymore.

I'm so disappointed at this smell. It DOES NOT SMELL LIKE stinks like with a musty odor. I tried it out bc of the 1 comment. But this is NOT A GOOD SCENT, CS should use the old formula...smells SO MUCH BETTER . if u like a traditional nag champa this is NOT IT AT ALL.. I hope yall bring the old version back this is garbage.


We've used the original Nag champa for years and it was always a best seller! I personally loved it too because it was the real deal. THIS UPDATED VERSION IS NOT IT! idk what it smells like. But we can't continue to sell this new version. Bring back the old one

Magical & Powdery & Floral, PERFECT!

Perfect blending of resinous and earthy notes, with the mystical sweet warmth, and unmistakable keynote of classic Nag Champa incense. I poured two candles in IGI 6006 wax: one using just the stand-alone FO and the second I blending Nag Champa + Patchouli + Frankincense and Myrrh (all three FO from CS and mixed in equal parts) = PEACE. Many of us are still under stay at home orders by our states, and this soothing blend of ethereal incense and earthly resin conjures the perfect space to escape everything that is going on in the world and just be at peace. Stay safe & be well.

Nothing like the old formula

The new version smells nothing like the old formula. this one smells very floral and slightly sweet and the hot throw is very weak! The old formula had a hot throw out of this world. Truly disappointed.

Love it

My experience is altogether different than the review below. I think the smell from the bottle is dreamy and the earthiness is very soothing to the mind. A great meditation scent for sure!

I usually love CS scents but when I opened this bottle and sniffed, I was immediately struck at how BAD this is. I understand CS wanting to step outside the box but this ain’t it. This needs to be vacuum sealed, put in a plastic baggie, packed INSIDE of a box and tossed into the sea. It is nausea inducing.
