amish friendship bread fragranceAmish Friendship Bread Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

What is Amish Friendship Bread? It’s a recipe for sweet, fruity bread passed from friend to friend that apparently takes 10 days to make. Some say this is a throwback to a simpler time before instant gratification spoiled us rotten and makes us appreciate waiting 10 days for bread. Better than waiting for a fruitcake to cure for at least a month, I guess. Color me confused because I don’t understand why a group of people who can raise a barn in a day need 10 days to make bread. I mean no offense to the Amish and if an Amish person is reading this, please email me at kross.ngscents@gmail.com and enlighten me on friendship bread and why you’re using the Internet. Maybe we could be friends and make each other bread.

What Does Amish Friendship Bread Fragrance Smell Like?

Believe it or not: bread. This scent has a freshly baked bread character and sweet notes of raisin and strawberries, with hints of nut. Just like yummy, tasty fruit-nut bread. (Banana Nut Bread represent! Not entirely relevant here, I just really like Banana Nut Bread. No bananas in Amish Friendship Bread.)

How Do Our Customers Use Amish Friendship Bread Fragrance Oil?

They make candles! Amish Friendship Bread Fragrance Oil performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. Recommended maximum usage percentage for vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. As for candle coloring, we recommend using 2 drops of brown liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax OR you can shred a small amount of a brown color block into your melted wax. Remember to never use a crayon to color your candle– it will clog your wick!

They also make soaps! Our maximum recommended usage percentage for Amish Friendship Bread is 5% in soaps. Our cold process soap testing results show that it performs well in CP soap with no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation, with good scent retention. It does, however, discolor to a chocolate color. Our coloring recommendations are.. none. We also have a square loaf mold if you want to make your soap look bread-shaped.

They also make bath and body products and perfumes! Recommended maximum usage for these products is 5%. Amish Friendship Bread performs perfectly in perfumes (try saying that ten times fast) and performs well in bath and body products. With a high Vanillin Content (6.7%) this fragrance oil may discolor your bath and body products as well. You can try some Vanilla White Color Stabilizer if you feel so inclined, but remember that it’s up to you to test how the color stabilizer works with this fragrance oil in your product.

And room scents.  Recommended maximum usage for this fragrance in potpourri and incense is 50%. Amish Friendship Bread Fragrance Oil is also nice and strong in aroma beads.

So there you have it- you can make all kinds of fun stuff with Amish Friendship Bread Fragrance Oil but it won’t take you ten days to do it! (Though you may need to wait a few weeks for your soap to cure, but you’re not going to eat it. Don’t eat it. Doesn’t matter how good it smells.) Goes great in gifts you’re making for friends! Friendship!
