Sweetgrass & Cedar
(6 reviews)  


The latest Fragrant Expressions bestselling addition. A big hit with our customers desiring a "Southwestern" scent for their line. Fragrant braided sweetgrass with just a touch of cedar (we don't want to smell like a closet!) create this fresh and herbal blend! Men love this too! A very earthy, unisex fragrance that lends itself to blending. (Sage or patchouli really work with it!) Herbal, woody, and fresh! Extensively tested to give you a fragrance that "does it all"! Paraffin, soy, cold process soap, and incense tested. Our herbal-loving customers rave about this one! Perfect for your fall lineup! We recommend a pairing with Falling Leaves, Blackberry Sage, and White Sage.
CP Notes: no acceleration, no discoloration... fades somewhat

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 ahhhhdore this FO! I wish I could give it 10 stars as well! I love the scent and love it’s performance in soy wax. It’s softly sweet and the cedar comes in at the end to round it out. The cedar doesn’t overpower. I can’t say enough great things about this FO!

Disadvantages: NONE

I made CP soap, it soaped well, No A or D, smelled great BUT...then within a few hours it smelled like burnt plastic and my soap was weeping FO out of it. This batch was split into two, this FO didn't work and the second part of batch (different) FO no issues. I can only assume it was this FO.

Advantages: No A or D in CP

Disadvantages: Smelled like burnt plastic after made.

This is a very nice scent,clean and natural and can be even better when adding a few drops of lavender or orange oil. Does very well in cold process soap.

Even though this wasn't a scent I enjoyed I have to say it was def true to the description! I give it 5 stars for that and that it had good hot throw at 1oz per lb parasoy wax. The scent just isn't something I prefer. I didn't get much of the cedar mainly just the sweet grass. It reminded me of standing in our field with the horses while a breeze went through lol I used the remaining oil to mix with other scents.

Advantages: Scent is true to description! Smells just like sweet grass.

Disadvantages: Although I love the smell of sweet grass, I discovered it wasn't a scent I wanted inside the house lol
