(4 reviews)  


Just about everyone wants good karma and great romance, so we combined the two into a sultry fragrance oil! An enchanting, musky, woody scent with a hint of mulled fruit, citrus peel and spiceberry in the top note, a green berry and vetiver middle, and a musky, creamy, patchouli, sandalwood and myrrh base note. This candle scent and soap scent is heavy, heady and will make you swoon! Not for the faint of heart. Candle making supply, soap making supplies.

Customers who purchased Karma Sutra fragrance oil also purchased candle making supplies such as wicks and candle scent.

All About IFRA

IFRA guidelines - what does it mean?

Let's discuss IFRA (International Fragrance Association) and what that means for you...

From their website: The IFRA Standards form the basis for the globally accepted and recognized risk management system for the safe use of fragrance ingredients and are part of the IFRA Code of Practice. This is the self-regulating system of the industry, based on risk assessments carried out by an independent Expert Panel.

The Expert Panel is made up of renowned independent experts from the fields such as dermatology, toxicology, pathology and environmental sciences. Their role is to evaluate the data on a fragrance ingredient to see if it supports the current use level, to make sure that there is no risk for the consumer. In cases where the safety assessment does not support the current use, the Panel instructs IFRA to issue a Standard either restricting or banning a material.

We have IFRA on all fragrance oils and flavor oils on our website. Click on the product name and below the description you'll see a set of tabs. IFRA is one of those tabs. You can click on that to see the *max* levels allowed for specific applications.

What do the max levels mean? Let's use Almond Paradise as an example. The IFRA guidelines on this state that there are no restrictions for soaps, shampoos, lotions, etc. So does that mean you can use 100% in your product? No. That would mean your product consists of straight fragrance oil.

The IFRA states the *max* that can be used, not the recommended amount. It is the responsibility of the maker to do their research to see what the recommended usage rate of fragrance oil for their particular recipe is.

For soap, as a general rule of thumb you will use up to 5% of fragrance oil in Cold Process (CP) soap and up to 3% in Melt and Pour (M&P) soap.

So if you see a fragrance oil and the IFRA says 23% for soap, don't use 23%. IFRA is important when it comes to lower numbers. There are a few fragrance oils that have max usage rates that are less than the percentages shown above. In that case, you can only use the max shown for the oil.

I absolutely love the scent! My customers love it too. But this is a tricky scent to work with as it causes acceleration...and fast! I've tried using this in CP soap at 70 degrees F and it's like instant soap on a stick. For me, it works best in HP soap.

Advantages: Love the scent

Disadvantages: super fast acceleration!

This scent is certainly one that you will remember. It seemed a little strong out of the bottle; however, once in my CP soap, it softened quite a bit but still retained its slightly spicy scent. It certainly didn't discolor my base but it did speed up trace a bit; thus, don't try a lot of swirls (next time I'll make sure my base is very cool). I ended up having to rebatch my soap but this scent held up even thought that.

Advantages: Strong scent (I used the recommended ratio and was not disappointed).

Disadvantages: Rather quick trace so soap cool and work quickly.

Oh my goodness! Have to write this review because this scent is SO beautiful. Can't describe it. Haven't put it in wax yet but I'm going to make myself some perfume today :) It is definitely a perfect blend of sweetness, earthiness, a bit of floral and woods for sure. Wow. Please try this one.
