SOAP Panel – Fragrance #7

Green Pink Orange Red

Out of the bottle thoughts about Scent #7:

Scent: #7
Oil Color: clear
Behavior in Cold Process Soap: absolutely terrible.
MAJOR heating, ricing, acceleration; Soaped at 85°F; once in mold 128°-150°; went to get ice packs and temp rose to 185° in 2minutes; started to volcano ooze out of top; got more ice packs. After unmolding – hard as a rock!
