Rainforest fragrance oil is an exotic blend of cedar, ylang ylang, cypress, and vetiver, complimented with fruit notes and rich greenery. It is a mash of tropical island, green forest, and jungle with these smells coming together to create something more than themselves ever could be. Compare to Lush® brand Jungle™
Tested 6/28/18 by Carrie T. (owner) in a recipe of 33% lye solution with 5% superfat at 75 degrees. Recipe is 35% olive, 35% organic and sustainable palm, 20% coconut, and 10% castor. Medium acceleration but very workable. Soap with full water and at cooler temps to avoid acceleration as much as possible.

I really love the scent of jungle in lush but it’s only in a conditioner. I put these in a massage bar and I’m absolutely loving it. It smells just like jungle and worked so well in it. I’m making soap with it in a few days so I can update if possible.
This is such a wonderful fragrance dupe for Jungle. Used in cp soap, be prepared to stick blend when it starts to separate but it is worth the effort!
I plan on using this in other products as its just too good to pass up and its very versatile. Thank you Nurture for a beautiful scent.
Rainforest is worth the effort. I use it in cold process. I soap cool, and blend while pouring it in after coloring, and it had a wonderful woody fragrance in a good final product.
Everything I'd hoped it would be!
I received a sample of this FO awhile ago, and now that my test batch is fully cured (and I enjoyed a bar of it today in my morning shower!), I realized I never showed my sincerest gratitude for such a wonderful scent!! Nurture, you folks ROCK for such sweet gifts included with orders, and I've STILL not been disappointed with a single fragrance I've received here! I've had the honor of soaping with MANY NS FO's now and can proudly say these are some of the strongest, longest lasting FO's I've ever soaped with! Not a single one has faded or morphed on me. I made a 1lb test batch with this FO & WOW! Talk about a rejuvenating scent! It smells like nature and all those beautiful, lush, green aromas one would smell on a walk through the forest! It's hard to fully describe this scent, as It's beautifully complex, but in a naturalistic way! I get hints of something camphorous in this too, and the blend is serenely earthy! Smells more like an essential oil blend to me- it's just so refreshing, authentic & natural, and EXACTLY how I imagined it would smell by the description! Being a test batch, I didn't do anything fancy with it (no added colors, no designs), but I think that suits the "vibe" of the scent! I soaped at room temp and had no problems working with this FO... No ricing, no discoloration and only mild acceleration in my recipe (that I only noticed because my batter set up a little quicker once molded, but nothing that had me scrambling to get it poured). My batch went through gel (which I prefer), and the scent has been amazingly lasting & potent! If you prefer more natural-smelling aromas, or you're an earth-lover at heart who enjoys the smell of the great outdoors, this is the scent for you! Even my husband commented on how much he liked this scent... We BOTH recommend it! Thank you for a truly delightful gift Nurture!!
I discovered that this fragrance has a huge following. The people who love it really love it. I made shampoo and a few melt-and-pour soaps to satisfy a few of them. It doesn't hurt that I love this fragrance, too. Even with its green wild side, it is very soothing.
Simple soap recipes without a large water discount help me work with difficult fragrances so I'm game to test a small batch in CP. Otherwise, I'll happily keep it in other bath and hair products.
