Default On the hunt for....

So I've looked at the 4 sites I buy FO from and I can't find a few specific FOs anyone know where I can find them at, I've been to wsp, rustic escentuals, brambleberry and natures garden.

I looking for a straight plum FO, nothing with not not plum with floral not plum with other fruits just a straight up plum scent, the next one I'm trying to find and new luck is a spicy cedarwood, something like cedarwood and clove or cinnamon, I want something that's woodys yet spicy, but not overpowering spicy. I've had absolutely no luck trying to find any of these, sor besides the 4 websites I've listed, does anyone know where I can find theses FOS? Also alot of the lemongrass FO I've looked up alot of the reviews aren't very good, mostly saying to floral or too chemical like so anyone know of a good site for a good straight lemongrass FO?

Thank you

For the lemongrass why not just use EO?

I thought about it, but every time I use EO in cp, it fades fast or the lye just eats it so I'm too scared to spend more money on EO considering how expensive it is compared to FO, unless you do you know for sure if EO won't be eaten by the lye or fade, I buy all my EO from plans therapy, doTerra is ridiculously expensive

I highly recommend lemongrass EO. It sticks well on CP. One of the only Citrus like scents that sticks. I use it all the time with no issue. Can't help you with the other two though.

What brand EO you recommend that's not really expensive?

Try New Directions Aromatics. There's a $100 minimum order, but it's easy to get there if you're stocking up on fragrances.

I order most of my EOs from New Directions or Camden Grey (depends on if I have enough other stuff to meet the NDA $100 minimum). Sorry I don't have any suggestions for the straight plum or spicy cedarwood other than check fragrancebuddy.com if you haven't already.

I have used the Crafter's Choice from WSP, great lemony scent (my nose says lemon, not lemongrass), utterly reliable, sticks around. One of my favorite scents. I buy 16 oz at the time.

I'd go with lemongrass EO too. It is strong and does stick well. I have also had good luck with cedar, and you could add a few drops of cinnamon leaf or clove to make it spiced. I'd look at one of the suppliers you normally use for fragrance supplies. I've been happy with Bramble Berry EO, although I haven't ordered many from them. I ordered most of the ones I have from Camden Grey.

I think I got mine from WSP. Liberty Natural and New Directions I have used as well.
