Frequently Asked Questions

 

We will send bag, shrink band, and fragrance samples with any order if the request is made at the time the order is placed. Sample requests are filled on an "as available" basis and not a guarantee of receipt. We strive to keep stock on our shelves for samples, but from time to time, we run out. We will do our best to get the samples you have requested. If a buyer requires a sample of material, please order the smallest size for evaluation.

 

All of our fragrance are tested in making cold process soap. We look for fragrances that do not accelerate trace or cause the soap to seize. We also check for fragrances that hold up to the soap making process. We reject fragrances that mutate or fade away. 

Yes! You can use any of our fragrances in candles. That being said, we do not test our fragrances for compatibility with candle waxes as our primary focus is soap and body care. There are too many different waxes available to test. Several of our customers do use our fragrances for candles and have not had issues. Some fragrances may need an addition of stearic acid or another ingredient to help bind them to the candle wax.

We suggest for a light/moderate scented candle to be 3% fragrance. If the fragrance is heavy or extremely potent, we would recommend 1 to 2%.
We suggest for a moderate/heavy scented candle to be 5% fragrance. If the fragrance is heavy or extremely potent, we would recommend 3 to 4%.
We suggest for a heavy/super scented candle to be 7%. If the fragrance is heavy or extremely potent, we would recommend 4 to 5%.

Lighter scents that are volatile may add 1 to 2% more scenting oil over what we have listed above. We never use 10% fragrance oils because we use uncut fragrance oils. Diluted fragrance oils can be used at 10% or greater. I never make candles at 7%. Never, ever. Not even with light fragrances.

Many of our fragrances are phthalate-free. If you contact us with the names of the items you wish to order, we will check their datasheets for DEP. We don't publish a list of the fragrances that are phthalate-free because we do not believe the study which claims that other classes of phthalates cause a small penis, and all classes of phthalates are different anyway. The study never reviewed perfumery.

We are always happy to look these up so any customers you have can ask, and you will know how to correctly answer.

All of our oils are pure and not adulterated or diluted. We do not use carrier oils in our essential oils at all. Oils are sourced from around the world. Some items are grown here in the USA, while others come from other countries. Some oils are certified organic, but we are not an organic facility, so the certificate does not retain to the oil.

We use essential oils in a lot of cosmetic applications and feel it is in our best interest to offer you a good value while retaining a quality product for our catalog. We are not interested in selling essential oils at astronomical prices. We just want an honest product at a fair price.

You are always welcome to request a Certificate of Analysis and/or a Gas Chromatograph/Mass Spectrometry Sheet for any oil that you purchase. At Majestic Mountain Sage, we are a team of mothers, wives, and daughters. We only want to sell materials we are willing to take home and make into products for our own families. And while that is an excellent start, it also requires transparency about the materials that have earned a place in our catalog. For that reason, you will always be able to request documentation for the products in each order.
