I want to incorporate a blend of the EO's below in cp soap but don't know how to formulate a good usage rate for each. I'd like to mix up a 1 oz. bottle. Can anyone offer assistance?

Tea Tree

First of all, you need to learn what a top, middle and base note is in fragrance. Then use Q-Tips or cotton balls to try out each blend. I leave my cotton balls or Q-Tips with each blend in Zip-Lock bags for a few days and then open and waft the fragrance with your hand toward you.
