VINEVIDA’S Favorite Ways To Use NO. 57, Orange Sherbet Soaps & Candles Fragrance Oil

Orange Slices

NO. 57, Orange Sherbet is a wonderfully refreshing, invigorating and hopeful fragrance oil. Based solely around the deliciousness of an Orange and how it makes your mouth water just at the thought of it.

It is fresh, lively, vibrant and gives your home and projects a wonderful ambience of hope and optimism. It just makes people smile.

Of course, being a bright, zingy citrus scent it evokes freshness, cleanliness and blows a delicious burst of Citrus breeze through your creative projects and your home. 

Toiletries and Skincare

Orange plus soap

NO. 57, Orange Sherbet Fragrance Oil Is ideal for cold process soaps and shower gels designed to wake you up. Give your morning a bright, zingy, citrus greeting and leave yourself feeling renewed, refreshed and optimistic about your day.

Fragrance oil with top notes like this can sometimes dissipate quite quickly, it is simply the nature of those ethereal and elusive top notes. Try anchoring it with robust heart and base notes to make it last longer. Ginger and Patchouli both make wonderful anchors for the overall scent profile.

Scenting The Home

It has a light, bright and refreshing profile making it ideal for use right across the home. We think it is perfect for places you want to create a clean, fresh atmosphere like the kitchen and bathroom.

It is so versatile to blend with other fragrance oils and essential oils that really the only limit is your imagination with this fragrance oil.

It is perfect to use as the base for creating a Signature Home Scent because it is a single note and leaves you enormous scope to build upon. Explore more about Signature Home Scents, in our blog article Layering Perfumes In The Home.

Wax and Scented Products

Orange pomander ball candle

NO. 57, Orange Sherbet Soaps & Candles Fragrance Oil is a great choice for making a variety of wax-based products. Orange is a well loved and vibrant scent and can be blended so easily.  Pair it with other Citrus fragrance and essential oils, or heady spices and rich woods. You can make something quite opulent and elegant with masterful blending.

Perfect for creating candles, wax melts, and sachets aimed at evoking a clean and refreshing ambience and atmosphere.

If you are going to use it in a Reed Diffuser, to get a good lasting ability, blend it with rich heart and base notes to prolong the scent.

It can also be used in all types of aromatherapy candle burners.


NO. 57, Orange Sherbet Soaps & Candles Fragrance Oil is one of our most versatile fragrance oils. We think that it readily blends with so many of VINEVIDA’s other Essential Oils and Fragrance Oils.

I like mixing it with strong spicy and woody notes, try blending it with NO. 21 - Cedarwood & Amber and NO. 54 - Nag Champa and it is wonderful with intoxicating floral Essential Oils like Neroli and Jasmine, add in a whopping base note like Patchouli or Vetiver and this will anchor and enrich the whole scent profile.

Cold Air Diffusers

If you have a Cold Air Diffuser, you will want our version of NO. 57, Orange Sherbet DIFFUSER Fragrance Oil developed especially for your Cold Air Diffusers.

It is NOT recommended that you use the Soaps and Candles version in your Cold Air or Nebulizing Diffuser. It is simply not designed for this purpose.

The Soap and Candles version is formulated with a thicker viscosity. This thicker and more dense consistency means that it could block the delicate nozzles on Cold Air Diffusers. 

Creative Ways To Use And Blend NO. 57, Orange Sherbet Soaps & Candles Fragrance Oil

It was just delicious developing this showcase for NO. 57, Orange Sherbet Soaps & Candles Fragrance Oil.  It leaves you filled with joy, happiness and feeling cheery and optimistic.

I hope that you will get as much joy out of creating some of these blends and projects for yourself, for your friends and family and for your customers.

It's a vibrant, refreshing and joyful fragrance oil for use around the home and in skincare and toiletries. But first, shall we see how easy it is to create an amazing range of diffuser blends?

NO. 57, Orange Sherbet Diffuser Blends

Citrus reed diffuser

I want to show you just how versatile this vibrant and fresh fragrance oil is. Because it is mostly a single note scent, you can add in a variety of other aromas to compliment it beautifully.

One of the easiest places to start is to look at your cuisine. What herbs and spices get paired with Orange in your culture’s cuisine?  Some of the most obvious pairings here in the UK are Ginger, Nutmeg, Cardamon, Clove, Thyme and Rosemary. It is often associated with Christmas and Christmas spices but it also pairs beautifully with fresh green herbs and is sublime with Eucalyptus.

I want to show you how to pair it with other super vibrant Citrus notes in a couple of different ways. One for something uber fresh and lively and then for something much more refined and elegant.

I then want to show you how to blend it into a rich and complex scent profile, making it perfect for any intimate space in the home and not just the kitchen and bathroom.

Diffuser Blends fall into IFRA Category 12 where NO. 57, Orange Sherbet fragrance oil has no safety restrictions.


    1. It is really simple. Just blend your fragrance oil and essential oils together in a small measuring jug.
    2. Using a funnel to help, decant into a 10ml dropper bottle. A silicone spatula helps you get every last drop of oil from the jug so nothing is wasted. 
    3. Using an oil-proof label, label clearly, listing all of the ingredients used. 
    4. You MUST annotate this bottle as ‘UNDILUTED’ for safety considerations. 

How To Use:

    1. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for your individual diffuser. 
    2. Dilute if you are instructed to do so.

NOTE: If you have a Cold Air Diffuser, please use the variation labeled DIFFUSER Fragrance Oil.

Citrus Breeze

Citrus fruits

Bright, zingy and super vibrant, this blend is sure to bring you to life. Perfect to diffuse in the morning to get you going or pop it on when you are flagging and need a bit of a boost.

It is perfect to create that clean, fresh and breezy ambience for your kitchen and bathroom. The inclusion of the Citrus Odor Eliminator helps to combat any pesky whiffs and less desirable aromas too.

    1. Not designed or formulated for topical use.

Orange Indulgence

Orange is life

This is rather decadent and wonderfully indulgent. Though be warned, it has such a variety of deeply delicious complex notes that it can become heady. Use it in short, blissful bursts of gorgeousness for a real treat. 



    1. Not designed or formulated for topical use.

Room and Linen Sprays

Woman cleaning room

I think NO. 57, Orange Sherbet Soaps & Candles Fragrance Oil is nothing short of perfect for making your own Room and Linen sprays.

You can use it on its own for a bright, fresh and vibrant burst or you can use the Diffuser Blends as a guide for creating something a bit different and more elegant and complex.

Be brave and have a go at creating something truly unique. It is exceptionally versatile fragrance oil in this product arena. As I said before, the only limit here is your imagination.

For Room and Linen Spray In IFRA Category 10A, NO. 57, Orange Sherbet fragrance oil has no maximum safety dilution restrictions. You can use as much as you like, but it is not a license to go nuts.

You will need to mix together Purified or Distilled Water with Vodka or Alcohol. If you keep the alcohol content of the spray high you should not need any additional preservative, if you use less alcohol, use a commercial preservative please. Then you need to add your NO. 57, Orange Sherbet Soaps & Candles Fragrance Oil and other chosen fragrance and essential oils and either Witch Hazel or Castile Soap as a dispersant. Alternatively, use a commercial dispersant like Polysorbate 20 or 80.  Simply combine them all in a spray bottle, label fully and you are good to go!

Our Favorite Recipes

Our brilliant VINEVIDA Soaps & Candles Fragrance Oils are specifically designed for creating a range of amazing  products. They are designed to stand up to the rigors of the high temperatures of the cold process soap making and candle making processes. Yet, they can also withstand the dilution that is often needed for toiletries and skincare. They are also custom designed to be able to still hold their fragrance strength through any of these processes.

We always get very excited, here at VINEVIDA when it comes to the possibilities of our fragrance oils. It is part of the joy of our work to come up with new ideas, recipes and tutorials  for you all.

This week, we have the gorgeous, mouth watering NO. 57, Orange Sherbet fragrance oil and it begs to be used on the skin in a way where the fresh vibrant scent can linger and I thought this rich and nourishing Hand Cream was the perfect medium for this.

NO. 57, Orange Sherbet fragrance oil is perfect for projects where you want that sense of freshness, cleanliness and vibrancy. Try it in our second recipe for this week, a Natural Body Scrub for a sublime sensation. 

Hand Cream

Citrus fruit cream moisturizer

This is a brand new Hand Cream recipe for you, that is wonderfully nourishing and delightfully fragrant, fresh and vibrant.

This Hand Cream is rich in skin smoothing and nourishing butters, wax and oils.  It is perfect for this time of year, for keeping your hands and nails in tip top condition.

Don’t be afraid to create your own incredible blend and fragrance it how you wish. Make it yours!

Emulsifying Wax

People often see Emulsifying Wax in recipes and scroll past thinking “I don’t know what it is and I don’t know how to use it”!

Don’t scroll past! It is really simple to use.

There are just a couple of considerations you need to remember when you use Emulsifying Wax.

    1. Some Emulsifying waxes work differently, some dissolve and some need to be melted. Check your individual brands instructions and follow the instructions on the packet if they differ from the recipe given.
    2. If it needs melting, heat it thoroughly to melt it totally. Equally, make sure it dissolves totally, if it is the dissolving kind. 
    3. Do NOT add your lid to your jars or bottles until the mixture is completely cool. Creams with emulsifying wax can be prone to mold if you seal any residual heat/moisture in. You can also use a commercial preservative to combat this, but even with a preservative, wait until it is completely cool before adding a lid.

Is it easier than you think, so please do have a go and see what you can create.

In IFRA Category 5C -  NO.57, Orange Sherbet has a maximum safety dilution recommendation of 50%. Please remember that this is maximum safety dilution rate and not a recipe recommendation, if you used that much, it would be way too strong and affect the consistency of your Hand Cream. 

You Will Need:

    1. Double boiler
    2. Small saucepan
    3. Stainless steel spoon
    4. Measuring spoons
    5. Sterilized glass jar and lid
    6. Label
    7. Funnel


Optional: Preservative of your choice. 


    • Do not use it in the first 16 weeks of pregnancy.


    1. Carefully measure out all of your ingredients before beginning.
    2. If you are choosing to use a preservative, please consult your manufacturer's individual instructions on when to add it and how much. 
    3. In a double boiler set over a low to medium heat, add the Cocoa Butter, Beeswax and Argan Oil.
    4. Stir gently until fully melted.
    5. In a small saucepan, gently warm the Orange Flower or Rosewater and dissolve the Emulsifying Wax into it. (If you have a different variety of Emulsifying Wax follow your brands instructions).
    6. Remove both pans from the heat and pour the Orange Flower water and Emulsifying Wax mixture into the Butter, Wax and Oil mixture.
    7. Continue to stir this mixture together until it is fully cooled through and thickened. 
    8. Add your NO. 57, Orange Sherbet Soaps & Candles Fragrance Oil and your Eucalyptus and Spearmint essential oils. Alternatively, create your own blend, just be mindful of your IFRA maximum safety dilutions though please. 
    9. Decant into a sterilized jar, use a funnel to help.
    10. Cover with a clean cloth and allow to fully cool before placing on your lid.
    11. Once cooled, add your lid and label listing all ingredients for safety reasons.

How To Use:

    1. It is recommended, if you do not use a preservative, to keep this Hand Cream in the refrigerator and to use it within two months of production.
    2. Simply work liberally into your hands and nails to keep them in tip top condition. 
    3. Remove any excess with a paper towel or tissue.  

Natural Body Scrub

Orange scrub

NO. 57, Orange Sherbet Fragrance Oil just sings of vibrant, zingy freshness, of hope, joy and optimism. What better than a Natural Body Scrub to make the most of this delicious aroma?

This is a brand new Body Scrub recipe that needs to be made at the time you want to use it. You need to use it within a couple of hours of making it, to get the best from the natural ingredients.

Honey is a wonderful ingredient to soothe and soften your skin and has its own wonderful skin cleansing properties and actions. Avocado brings its rich nourishing flesh packed with phytonutrients and antioxidants.

NO. 57, Orange Sherbet Soap and Candles Fragrance Oil in IFRA category 9 has no maximum safety dilution restrictions.

Remember though, that any essential oils and other fragrance oils that you use, will have differing safety dilution recommendations.

There is no option on the VINEVIDA  calculator for Body Scrub. Instead, use the ‘Shampoo’ option, as it is a rinse off product too. This will help you work out the correct safety data in the right category, for this particular project.

A Note On Exfoliants

You will need an exfoliating agent for this recipe. I recommend a medium to fine ground Sea or Rock Salt or Turbinado Sugar, as you can find them easily.

However, if you want something with a bit more oomph, choose harder exfoliants that do not so readily dissolve into water. Pumice, granulated or ground Walnut, Almond and Peach Kernels are all ideal.  They are great for stubborn areas of dry skin like on the heels and feet, or for calluses on the hands.

If you intend to use this on your face, go for finely ground exfoliants like a fine sea salt, or light brown sugar…even Caster Sugar is acceptable on your face. They dissolve, so it does not damage your skin and of course, the salts and sugars bring their own actions to the Natural Body Scrub too. 

You Will Need:

    1. Mixing bowls
    2. Measuring spoons
    3. Stainless steel spoon


    • 50g of Exfoliant (see section above).
    • 1 overripe Avocado
    • 2 tbsp of good quality pure honey. If you can use raw honey, all the better. 
    • 2 tbsp of Argan Oil, but can substitute for your preferred oil here like Olive and Coconut.
    • 1 tsp of NO. 57, Orange Sherbet Soap and Candles Fragrance Oil


    • Do not use it over broken or irritated skin. 


    1. Warm the honey very slightly to make it easy to work into the mix and blend more evenly through the Natural Body Scrub.
    2. Using a fork, break down the flesh of the avocado and mash it to a smooth puree.
    3. Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl, until they are thoroughly mixed.

How to Use:

    1. Use immediately.
    2. Work gently into the skin and leave on for a few minutes to get the best from the natural ingredients.
    3. Then rinse thoroughly with clean, warm water.

It is paramount here at VINEVIDA, that we show our valued customers how to use our products safely. Therefore, on our website and the individual webpages, we provide you with all the safety information you need.

Please remember, it is your responsibility to consult that safety information and put it into practice.

IFRA Guidance

Don’t worry, sometimes we all get confused about what IFRA category something fits into, let’s face it, it is not immediately obvious which category Body Scrubs should be in. Body Scrubs fall into IFRA Category 9, because they are a rinse off product.

If in doubt, always plump on the side of caution. To help me decide when I am stuck, I consult Guidance For The Use Of IFRA Standards. This helps to guide the way and answer any questions I may have.
