Ming Fern & Lavender
(8 reviews)  


Prized Ming Ferns are hardy perennials, showcase a vibrant emerald green hue, and can be used for bonsai. This fragrance oil honors this precious plant and balances base notes of Ming Fern with herbal blue lavender, Italian mandarin, red ginger, earthy Indonesian patchouli, oak moss, gentle Aloe Vera, Kaffir lime and Argentina lemon leaf. Strong and well-balanced. Candle testing in GB 464 soy wax had very strong hot and cold throw. Customers searching for Ming Fern and Lavender fragrance oil were also interested in our fragrance oil for soap.

CP Notes: No A, may end up with some yellow D--if it does, it will be slight.

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 can't tell you how many bottles of this I've bought over the years, but let me tell you this, It is a staple in my soap making business. I'm not a fan of lavender by itself, so when I came across this one, I was a bit hesitant, but it quickly became my most favorite lavender blend ever. I usually don't carry lavender scented products but whenever I'm at a fair and a customer asks for it, I introduce them to this blend and it sells without fail every time.

Advantages: Behaves beautifully in cold process soap with no issues what so ever.

Disadvantages: None

A lovely, feminine fragrance. Behaved like a charm in CP soap, was able to create a three color hanger swirl. Fragrance has held up nicely. Has been a good seller and even those who do not like lavender, love the scent of this bar.

Advantages: Behaved like a dream, no acceleration or ricing, very workable. Scent holds.

Disadvantages: None

This is the great negotiator...meaning it blends well with just about everything. If something is too floral, quiet it down with Ming Fern. It is very spa-like and I use it often with Sea Kelp. Behaves in CP soap.

Advantages: Very balanced, blends well with so many FO

Disadvantages: None

I tousled a few drops of this oil in my hair and what an awesome fragrance it gave me! Fresh like rain, love the lavender, lightly earthy and slightly flowery. Just what I wanted. I'm buying more tonight to concoct a perfume! Love it!
