Has anyone tried?
Do they work?
Is it safe to assume that since they're for food, they're safe to use on skin?

Reason I asked is I have a customer who makes cakes ask me if I had chocolate, vanilla or bubblegum scented lotion bars..... I don't - I only use EOs because looking for a supplier for fragrance oils that won't break my budget has been difficult, and also I'm going with the "natural" route with scents and colors for my brand.

I know, I know.. I'm using the word natural in a very broad sense so please no nitpicking lol

But yeah.. Since I already use food and spices to color my soap, I figured I'd ask about cake flavor oil.

Thank you!

Lorann brand flavor oils has a crafting section on their website. Check your brand’s website, maybe they have their own recipes or recommendations. I know the Loranon peppermint, orange, and cinnamon flavors are the pure oils, maybe you’ll luck out and find something like that by you

I have used Lorann brand in lip balms in the past with decent results. But I wasn't selling them. They were for personal/family use.

Try searching online, there are so many websites that sell cake flavored oil for lotions, soap and etc. I think no harm using them.

It it sweetened flavor oil? Because that might make the wearer more popular with the local dog and mosquito population, but that's the only concern I can think of.

If you use a good amount of the non-deodorized cocoa butter, it should smell like chocolate automatically. Or like a Mounds bar if you pair it with virgin coconut oil. I don’t think I’d use a sweetened flavoring for lotion bars; I want the bugs to keep away!

I use unrefined cocoa butter for more than half the total amount (hot here, too soft when I used less) and to me it's enough to get that chocolatey scent. It's the others that are unfortunately not available IN EO like bubblegum n fruity types.
