Banana (True) Fragrance Oil Spotlight
You’ll never meet a more honest fruit in your life. This aroma is so authentic; it’s bananas. A banana is technically a berry– what?! I had no idea! There are all different kinds of bananas- but the one we’re most familiar with is called a Cavendish banana. And even those are divided into more subspecies. I never knew bananas were so complex- but this scent is spectacularly simple. If you’re bananas about bananas (BANANAS!!), be sure to check back on the blog for more banana-related-scents.

A wonderful strong single note of fresh, ripe banana. Great for use by itself or for creative mixing with other fragrances.
How Do Our Customers Use Banana (True) Fragrance Oil?
Candles, of course! This pure aroma performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. This fruity fragrance is not gel wax compatible. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this simple, strong scent in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Our coloring recommendations for candles are to use 6 drops of yellow liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax or shred an ample amount of yellow color block into your melted wax. You want a nice, true yellow for your nice, true banana scent. Remember to never color your candles with crayons–it will clog the wick!
Room scents! This authentic aroma comes across nice and strong in aroma beads. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this fresh fragrance in incense and potpourri is 50%.
Soaps! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this simple scent in soaps, bath oils, and bath gels is 4%. Our cold processing soap testing results found that this true fruit fragrance caused no acceleration, no ricing, no separation, and retained its scent excellently. It did, however, discolor to a light beige. This is possibly due to the 1% vanillin content of the fragrance oil. The higher the vanillin content, the more likely your soap is to discolor to a shade of brown. In this case, it is a very, very, very light shade. (Watch the video or check the fragrance oil page to see the picture!) This means there is also a chance it will slightly discolor your other bath and body products as well. If you’d like to try to correct this, you’re welcome to try our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer– but remember, you are responsible for the results in your finished products. Our coloring recommendations for bubbly banana bath and body products are to use yellow soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. You’re also welcome to try natural soap colorants- bee pollen powder seems to be the brightest natural yellow. Bee sure to read the description on the page for more information- buzz buzz! (It also may help to wet the powder with vegetable glycerin for more even distribution of your powder throughout your soap.) Never use candle dye in body products- you’ll dye yourself!
