These are mostly CP because the HP kept moving so fast! These are all the original 1 oz bottles.... I reallly like the Sea Kelp and it did stick. Next month I may order some 4oz of the ones I do like and see if the quality is the same-thanks for the heads up!

Quick update...used up the Lavender Chamomile 1oz in a pound of soap a couple months ago when I did a 5 lb "use for testers" batch. Did it CP (my usual mix minus a little water since the recipe is mostly used HP) and cured it like anything else. Today I was noticing some weird oilness to the edges of a different batch above it and looked closer- DOS around the edges of each bar but really bad on the bottoms of the bars.... When I took the stack apart (stacking letter trays) I discovered that the lavender chamomile underneath had major major oily orange dos half an inch in all the way around the bars! I highly suspect that the batch above (Fragrance Buddy Merlot) "caught" its dos from these bars -they are only 1/4" apart when curing and the top bars were way worse on the bottom closest to the Lavender bars. The next closest bars to either group were an inch away and seem fine, but the soap ball sitting on top got it too. No pictures because they are in the bottom of a garbage bag really far away now. It was not the soap batch, the other 3 lbs worth of sampling have no DOS.

Moral is, test test test if you are going to use the lavender chamomile. I may give it another chance in a HP batch if I do another sample sale blowout because OOB it smells great...but I will be curing it wayyyyy away from anything else! Hopefully this was just a fluke but I hate DOS...
