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.

Just like the incense!

I made CP soap with this fragrance and it was a HUGE hit! it smells amazingly like the incense, which is my favorite. It behaved well in the soap making process. I will definitely keep this in my lineup.

In love

First time ordering with Candlescience. Order arrived promptly and oils were packaged very well. I’m over the moon with the Nag Champa. The right amount of powdery, florals and light on the Patchouli. IMO, they knocked it out of the park with this blend.

Exactly like Nag Champa

This smells amazing! Nag Champa is one of my favorite incense to light around the house, so I was so surprised when I opened the bottle and it smells exactly like it. The CT and HT did not change the smell or the strength of the fragrance either. Great job on this one!
