Agave Lime FragranceAgave Lime Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Sweet and citrusy, this fresh scent is sure to fill you with energy. Feeling refreshed, you decide to go for a walk. Beautiful weather; clean, ozone-y air. You come upon a park and suddenly you smell orange, lemon, and most strongly, lime. What is this? Some kind of Citrus Family Reunion? You keep walking and your delicate lil sniffer begins detecting floral notes. Floral notes, yes, but your particular nose notices something else. Smells.. green. You keep walking as the smell gets stronger and stronger. You look around, searching desperately for the source of this amazing scent. It smells familiar, but you remember putting your fragrance oil away somewhere safe before leaving the house, and you were careful not to get any on your skin, or clothes. Hmm.. so what could it be? You look down to see a tiny commotion happening on the ground – a tiny wedding! The Citrus family is there: Daddy Orange, Mama Lemon; their son Lil Lime is waiting at the altar wearing a little black bow tie. On the opposite side of the aisle are some members of the floral family. And there she is, the beautiful bride: Agave. What is a sweetie like her doing marrying a sour lime? They work well together and her sweetness balances him out. As they exchange vows, all those in attendance begin to cry. And that’s where Agave Lime Fragrance Oil comes from.

What Does Agave Lime Smell Like?

If the above passage did not sufficiently describe the scent, I’ll give you the shortened version here.  This fragrance starts of with a blend of shimmering citrus scents, including essential oils of orange, lemon, and, of course, lime, accompanied by a refreshing highlight of liquid ozone. The heart of this fragrance is tropical floral notes and exotic agave greens. This all sits on a soft background of clear musk and rich sandalwood.

How Do Our Customers Use Agave Lime Fragrance Oil?

For starters, we’ve got this super cute Lime Cupcake CP Soap Recipe; lime-scented, cupcake-shaped soap. Maximum usage for Agave Lime in bath oils, soaps, and bath gels is 5% (lotions, perfumes, and cleaning products, too). Our cold process soap testing results show that when added to CP soap, Agave lime was beautiful with a perfect pour; no acceleration; no ricing; no discoloration. And guess what – we’ve got some Lime Green Soap Colorant that works well in both melt and pour and cold process soaps. Lime-scented, lime-colored!

For candle makers, Agave Lime performed perfectly in joy wax, wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. Recommended maximum usage in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. As for coloring your Agave Lime-scented candles, we recommend 1 drop of green liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax. Or shred a small amount of green color block into your melted wax. Remember not to try to color your candles with a crayon- it will clog the wick!

And for those of you who want to use this refreshing fragrance oil to make potpourri and incense the maximum usage percentage is 50%. Agave Lime comes across nice and strong in aroma beads. Celebrate the love between Agave and Lime and the joining of the Citrus and Floral families! Buy Agave Lime Fragrance Oil today!
