I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream For Osmanthus!

I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream For Osmanthus!

I bet you expected “ice cream,” right? We have something else for you to scream about – Osmanthus Fragrance Oil.

Osmanthus makes this melt and pour soap smell amazing.

This scent is a favorite with just about everyone who gets a whiff. It comes from the flower of a plant in the olive and lilac family. Common names include fragrant olive, sweet olive, or tea olive. It’s a soft floral, but not with the usual floral vibe. There is a lot of light fruitiness to the scent, too, often described as apricot or peach with cream.

Our catalog describes it as “sensual, fresh, fruit and herbaceous and wonderfully calming.” Perfumers prize Osmanthus for its complex, intriguing scent that works well to pull together florals and fruits. I was astonished when I looked up a list of perfumes that include this fragrance. It’s in a multitude of fragrances, and not just scents for women!

In China, where the fragrant olive plant grows, the flowers are dried to make a delicate and delicious tea. Though it used to be consumed mainly in Asia, those in the Western world have discovered Osmanthus’ delicate flavor as well.


Here’s a simple way to enjoy this scent: make up a fast batch of soap using our Olive Oil Soap Base. This is a translucent base with great lather. Here’s what you’ll need to make it:

Olive Oil Soap Base
Osmanthus Fragrance Oil
Microwave Safe Container
Soap Mold


This really isn’t a recipe. Just weigh the amount of Olive Oil Soap Base needed to fill the mold you will use, cut it into chunks and melt, then and add 2.25% Osmanthus Fragrance Oil (strong usage rate). Pour this into your soap mold (we used our Soap Stone Silicone Mold), and when it has solidified, it’s ready to use.

You’ll be dazzled by the resulting soap, and maybe you’ll turn into a screamer for Osmanthus, too!
