wonderful all purpose vanilla

I use this in alot of products including soaps, bath bombs, lotions etc. I cannot speak to whether it accelerates trace in soap, because I've always mixed it with other things that accelerate trace and soaped accordingly, low temps, simple designs. It's a staple in my cupboard and ago to when I want a REAL authentic vanilla scent.

Unexpected curdling

I wanted to use this essential oil instead of the synthetic fragrance oils for a vanilla-scented cold-process soap. The smell is wonderful, but upon adding it to the batch at trace the whole thing curdled, and trace was accelerated such that it no longer would pour into molds. I am wondering if anyone else has had similar issues. I have used this essential oil before, but not on it’s own; I have always mixed it with other fragrances. This is the first time I have used it exclusively for fragrance in a batch of soap.

Great vanilla for soap!

The other review on here is inaccurate and probably written after smelling the product straight in the bottle. You always need to try it in a product before you judge the scent. This works beautifully in cold process soap and produces a very lovely vanilla scent. I made a coffee vanilla soap and it was just perfect. It did not accelerate trace either. Since the soap was a base of coffee I was not concerned about the color change that happens when using vanilla.
