This works great for diffuser blends


With perfumer’s alcohol, I have made a really lovely reed diffuser blend that actually clears out in a way that makes it not just usable but presentable in a clear container. Since cocoa has notoriously been difficult for me to come up with a reed diffuser blend that doesn’t look like a muddy mess, the propylene glycol is the magical ingredient (with PA) to make the difference. This also works for me in a mist diffuser, for the same reasons, but it stays muddy brown in that application. A quick clean with alcohol when I’m finished and voila. This is not the cocoa I use on my body applications, only because of the PG, but as far as having great applications for other reasons, I’m ok with that one synthetic. I appreciate Eden’s commitment to honesty and transparency when it comes to their products. PG in and of itself isn’t a bad thing, but it does depend upon the application. Every chemical in existence has the potential to do harm if used improperly, so education is key. I hope they don’t stop carrying this because it serves a purpose for me that I’d really miss if they stopped carrying it. At least here, I know exactly what’s in the product. There’s many who attempt to carry a pourable cocoa that simply isn’t true cocoa and they know it but don’t label the PG appropriately. This scent is really yummy- and it’s a couple of steps away from the pure cocoa but it doesn’t make it unusable by any means. It works differently and can be adjusted for by accepting it for its delicious cookie scent instead of trying to make it fit into a place where a deep dark chocolate is needed.

Amazing but.....


If you don't mind 50% propolyn Glycol then this is an amazing oil...It is by far the best smelling cacao oil I have ever smelled.....Does not mix well with oil based blends.....

This makes me want to play!


This Cocao. Oh Yum! Smells like sneaking still warm fudge from a pan with a spoon, while decadent and playfully naughty. A dab of this with Ylang Ylang and Osmanthus makes a simple yet luscious Valentine's blend. Then add a bit of Rose, Amyris, Neroli and a tiny bit of Myrrh, the Cocao sits back and what comes forth is a mysterious, timeless scent. Yes, this is what an ancient Queen must have smelled like.

Ylang Ylang, Very Fine Indeed

I sometimes feel like a broken record when asked how to sweeten up a natural perfume blend. My answer about 90% of the time: just a touch of Ylang Ylang.
