We experienced excessive acceleration but no separation. Initially, the batter was very fluid and reached a light trace slowly. A few more pulses of the stick blender and we had mashed potato textured soap. We scooped the chunks of soap out of the pot and pressed it firmly into the mold as best we could. Within 15 minutes, the soap was almost in a full gel and the surface had cracked open. After 24 hours we cut the soap into bars and found they were smooth except in the corners where we did not press down firmly enough. We observed that the soap reached a full gel and the outer rim of the soap discolored to a bright yellow while the middle remained unchanged. The scent was pleasantly strong. After 30 days the soap discolored to a dark tan color and the scent remained strong. We recommend hand stirring in this fragrance at a very light trace.

loved it

Wasn't sure what to expect with this one. In my head I thought it was going to be more floral. But I am happy with how it turned out in my M&P soap. Will order more

It's Ok..May Need to Blend With Another Fragrance

The Sea Salt and Orchid is an ok scent. By itself, it lacks a strong hot throw. I have a little bit left so I will blend it with another scent (I am thinking Ocean Breeze or SeaSide Plumeria) to see how that works. It doesn't give me the sea or floral scent one would expect considering its name and notes.

I want to work with this scent b/c I see it as part of a Spa collection once I launch my candle business.

Hi There, Thanks for reaching out and we're so sorry to hear you've been having some trouble with the hot throw of your finished Sea Salt and Orchid products! We can definitely provide some blending recommendations if you're finding you would like certain notes to be stronger but we would love to take a closer look at this issue together since hot throw can be affected by a lot of different things. A member of our Support team will be reaching out via email today to help!

Sea Salt and Orchid holds a special place in my heart. This captivating fragrance has become my number one bestseller in both candles and hand creams, and it continues to captivate both me and my customers. The delicate allure of orchid combined with the invigorating essence of sea salt creates a symphony of fragrances that transport me to a world of tranquility and mystery. With its ability to infuse any space with a calming and sophisticated ambiance, Sea Salt and Orchid is not just a fragrance; it's a personal voyage that brings joy, serenity, and beauty to those who experience it.

My absolute FAVORITE!!

I have over 200 different fragrance oils and make various products and absolutely LOVVVEE this scent!! It is for sure in my top 3. It smells so fresh, clean but sweet. I scented some laundry balls and scent boosters with it and absolute cant stop smelling my clothes lol!! I usually like tropical and coconut scents and some clean scents but this one is unique and AMAZING! I will def be repurchasing this scent until they decide to discontinue (which i Hope is NEVER). Definitely a universal scent and would be great for any product!

Love the smell

This is my favorite. Not a sweet smell and so pleasant. I've used all kinds of oil. I can say this is the best so far..

I can see why people love this

I generally don’t like anything sweet for home fragrances, I think something is wrong with me so this could be a 5 for me if the sweetness was toned down a smidge. It would be an awesome shampoo though
