Patchouli Rain
(14 reviews)  


Patchouli Rain is like no other fragrance oil. It’s rich, deep, and mysterious. This fragrance oil is a fresh rain and earthy patchouli with notes of lily of the valley, cyclamen, fresh ozone, earthen moss, and hints of sweet citrus. Rain has never smelled better! Very strong throw in soy wax. Fragrance oil was tested in GB 464 soy wax with a one week cure.

Customers who purchased Patchouli Rain fragrance oil also purchased soap making supplies, wholesale candle making supplies, and soy wax flakes.
CP Notes: "Soaped great!" "No discoloration, no acceleration. Great scent retention."

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 got this as a sample and it is one of my favorites! Soft yet woodsy. Definitely ordering more.

Advantages: no discoloration
no acceleration

Disadvantages: Took 3-4 days before the scent fully came through after CP. So glad it did because I love it!

I cannot say enough good things about this scent. I expected an overly clean rain scent or dominant patchouli, but this is a perfect combination of clean and musky that had me in olfactory bliss. I used it in soy wax, it had a really good cold throw that filled up my entire kitchen while mixing (haven't tested the hot throw yet). This would make a fantastic cologne or soap too. If you're thinking about it, give it a shot. It may surprise you. I loved it so much I immediately ordered more.

Advantages: Great cold throw in soy

Disadvantages: None

This is an awesome FO to use in CP. I experienced no acceleration or discoloration and ended up with some of the best swirls that I have ever made. The scent is fresh and clean with just a hint of the Patchouli. It is a very nice scent for men, but women like it too.

Advantages: Works great in Cold Process Soap and smells wonderful.

Disadvantages: None
