Excellent to work with in cp soaps as far as acceleration, plenty of time for pouring, swirling and fussing around. Smells as I expected, a little different to the brand I usually use. It did turn my soap bright yellow, so factor that into your recipe. This was the first time I used this f/o but may again with colour adujstments. I would not add it to my pink colour in future, just the rest of the batter. It works brilliantly in bath salts and bombs.
