How Do Our Customers Use Pumpkin Walnut Biscotti Fragrance Oil?

Candles! This freshly baked fragrance performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax and is nice and strong in soy wax. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this delicious dessert scent in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. It is not gel wax compatible. Our coloring suggestion for candles is to use 6 drops orange plus 1 drop brown liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax or shred an ample amount of orange and brown color block into your melted wax. Never use crayons to color your candles; it will clog the wick!

Room scents! This autumn aroma comes across nice and strong in aroma beads and its maximum recommended usage percentage in incense and potpourri is 50%. (Try a reed stick diffuser kit for easy room scenting!)

Soaps! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this bakery scent in bath oils, bath gels, and soap is 5%. Our cold process soap testing found that this sweet, nutty scent had a perfect pour in CP soapmaking: no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation. Cured bars retained a strong scent and discolored to a chocolate color. This discoloration is likely due to the 7% vanillin content of the fragrance. The presence of vanilla tends to discolor bath and body products to varying shades of brown. The higher the vanillin content, the darker the discoloration. You can combat discoloration due to vanilla with our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer– but remember that you are responsible for the results in your finished products. Our coloring suggestions for bath and body products are to use orange and brown soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. Never color bath and body products with candle dye or they will end up coloring you! You can, however, try natural soap colorants– just be sure to pay close attention to the descriptions on their corresponding pages as different natural colors will be affected differently by different soap making processes.

Body products (outside of the bath)! This pumpkin scent performed perfectly in perfumes and its maximum recommended usage percentage in lotions and body spray is 5%.

Cleaning products! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this mouth-watering aroma in cleaning products is 5%.

Be sure to check out our unscented bases for an easy way to make the variety of products described above using this fantastic fall fragrance, following the guidelines outlined above!
