New! Natural Fragrances

I am very pleased to offer a premium range of natural aromatic fragrances, which contain absolutely no synthetic ingredients.

Fresh Aromatic Naturals from Fresholi are complex fragrance compounds that have been creatively formulated from essential oils, oleoresins, distillates, fractions, concretes, absolutes etc... from a variety of plants.

Fresh Aromatic Naturals Offer:

- Greater flexibility to the natural formulator
- Broader fragrancing options than what essentials oils and essential oil blends alone can offer
- Long-Lasting skin fragrancing (particularly when compared to essential oils alone)

Fresh Aromatic Natural fragrances are very concentrated. It is remarkable how little is needed, especially in cold products such as creams or body oils (where only a few drops to 100ml may be required).

Fragrances Available:

Natural Citrus
- Lemony and lively, this citrus fragrance has top notes of bergamot, grapefruit and lemon. The middle emerges as a lemon verbena and bergamot blend and the finish is a soft vanilla.

Natural Coconut-Lime
- Soft and tropical, this coconut lime fragrance has top notes of lemon zest, lime peel and pineapple. The middle is a blend of coconut milk and raspberry and the finish is a soft, dry down of Tahitian vanilla and tonka bean.

Natural Lemon-Cucumber - Fruity and uplifting, this lemon cucumber fragrance has top notes of citrus, Italian lemon peel and lime zest. This middle is a fresh, green cucumber and the dry down is a soft, sweet vanilla.

Natural Passionfruit - This sweet and lively passionfruit frangrance has top notes of grapfruit zest, pineapple and lemon, the middle emerges as a fruity melon, wildberry, pear and mango fusion and it finishes as a soft vanilla cream

Natural Pomegranate - Fruity and exotic, this pomegranate fragrance has top notes of clementine, grapefruit, tangerine and lemon, it merges into a floral marigold.

Natural Wild Berry
- This characteristic wild berry fragrance has top notes of bergamon, rosewood and banana, the middle emerges as a fruity fusion of red raspberry, blueberry and apple pear and it dries down to a soft vanilla base.

Usage Guidelines: 0.2-3% (generally 1-3% in soap formulations)

Fresh Aromatic Naturals In Cold Process Soap

So far, trials have been done with the Pomegranate, Wild Berry and Passionfruit fragrances in CP soap at 2%. Over the past nine months, the soaps have been watched closely for any changes.

From this, the following has been established:

- No acceleration
- No discolouration (although the Passionfruit initially turned bright yellow but this returned to a normal and expected colour within a few hours. No further changes thereafter)
- After nine months, a good fragrance is still present

While these trials are by no means conclusive and offer no guarantee but it does help provide a guide (but I do advise you carry out your own trials)

Tip! Smelling straight from the bottle gives very little indication of the true aromatic qualities of the natural fragrances. Before using them, I recommend you put a drop on a scent strip or absorbant paper and keep having a little sniff over several hours to really appreciate the nuances. This way, you will better understand the frangrance and its characteristics before adding to your products.

Oh MP, these are just so different and, being someone who is so used to essential oils, I am ever so comfortable with these. I think they are going to really broaden the options for those who prefer or have ranges that incorporate natural aromatic materials :o)
