3 spearmint, 2 sweet orange, 1 patchouli.
Or 2 spearmint, 2 mandarin, 1 cedarwood.
My favorite fresh eo blends at the moment.

If you want to try some FOs from BB, I suggest Bonsai, Kentish Rain, and Bamboo Mint for a fresh type scent. All 3 survive CP very well. Try to get a small sample to see if you like them. I've also used their 10 fold orange EO and it does much better in CP than the regular strength EO.

I just did a batch of grapefruit rosemary for a friend of mine. It is a fresh clean scent and we both loved it. I also love the citrus mint blend that I've made. I'm still at work (slow day) and I'll post the exact recipes for both when I get home. I'm a big grapefruit fan, so that alone is a wonderful fresh clean scent. It also lasts pretty well in CP soap. I've got grapefruit EO soap I made 6 or 7 months ago and the fragrance is still evident without having to wet the bar and lather it up.

Thank you all for the suggestions!
I've made an order but I will have to make another one by the looks of it hehe.
I bought 4 only to test out, but will definitely go back for more.
BB supplier comes back online soon so will try few of BB suggestions as well. I need to pick up some FOs I use regularly .

I was looking at Lemon myrtle yesterday but did't purchase any.
It's reasonably priced at AWO.
I know it probably sticks in soaps well, I was at Robyn's house (from Robyn's soaphouse) while she was still selling supplies from home and her whole house smells like lemon myrtle.

Natural Candle Suppy (now called Eroma) here in oz has a FO called rosemary and mint that is very nice and refreshing in CP soap that I have just used.

I'm sure an EO mix of the same would be lovely.

I adore BB Ginger Patchouli. Folks that hate patch actually like this one. It's a spicy fresh scent.

BB's OrangeX10 EO actually sticks really well in CP too.

BB's Moroccan Mint is very refreshing, sticks like glue and has no acceleration or discoloration. It's just a little toned down from a regular mint. I think they mention it has tea scents in there too.

fuzz-juzz have you checked out escentials of australia. They do get some bad press but I've never had a problem in 5 years. Their prices are great.

Thanks all!

Oh I totally forgot about them,... they do indded sell EOs. Oh well, next time. I made an order through AWO for these few EOs.
I love Escenitals, I purchase most of my oils from them, they are super cheap.
I also never had issues.
