This Gardenia Fragrance Oil holds an intoxicating “spot on” gardenia aroma. If you make roll-on or fixed perfumes, this one would be an excellent scent to consider for your line up.
Please note that this floral fragrance oil may cause some troubles in cold process soap making. We’ve noticed that it can accelerate trace … so be prepared, and as always, we suggest starting off with a small test batch when working with this heavenly scent. One thing that does seem to help is slightly heating the fragrance oil before adding to your soap, seems to help “slow down” trace.
This Gardenia Fragrance Oil is highly concentrated and undiluted. Recommended usage is 1/2 ounce per 4 lbs. of melt & pour soap base.
Please do not use this oil in lip balms. External use only.
INCI: Fragrance Oil
A note about fragrance oils: We at Organic Creations, Inc. strive to list all our products with an honest environment as to what they are made of. Fragrance oils often slip through this crack on most websites because the FDA allows them to be legally listed in the ingredient section on cosmetic labels, simply as “fragrance oil” even though they are comprised of many different ingredients.
I do not seek to explain why they have this rule, you can checkout this link if you are interested on their stand.
The term fragrance oil specifically means “made of synthetic ingredients.” Manufacturers will not disclose their ingredients, by law they aren’t required to. Some manufacturers will provide information on the chemical called phthalates. All our fragrance oils are phthalates free.
On the flip side to this debate, scent is generally the last ingredient listed on a label. That means it’s the least added by volume, so the amount of fragrance oil that is actually in a product is extremely small. I assume this is another reason why the FDA doesn’t require their ingredients to be spelled out.
If you are against using fragrance oils in your formulations, I would suggest checking out essential oils which are made from the leaves, twigs, flowers and roots from nature. However, if you are looking to add a scent to your formulation that is not achievable with essential oils, your only option is using a fragrance oil. Even names that sound natural like apple, pear, mango, etc. are not natural. It is simply impossible to extract those scents into an essential oil base, hence why fragrance oils exist and are found in formulations all over the world.
