Default Using rectified cade EO in cp soap - how much

Salt soap eat up the scents. Be it EO or FO. So it might morph into something you like better later.

Lush has a shampoo bar using Cade oil. It's called "soak and float". And French brand L'Occitane also has a man line just called Cade. You might be interested in hitting stores and sniff these products.

In the messages section, someone replied first message said lush change the scent with a floral tones. You might as well tried that. And don't tell me man don't like florals. Perfumes and colognes do contain floral notes. It's the middle and especially base note like ambergris and musk and civet make it smells masculine. I'm also in the process incorporating pine tar scent with others. It just smell as phenolic as Cade.

Notes: juniper from Provence, sandalwood, rosemary and immortal.
But on the chart, it's juniper, immortal,cedarwood, and bergamot. ( main notes according to votes) so probably it's sandalwood and rosemary being the disclosed notes and cedarwood and bergamot being the notes people smell it and post it on website?

Do you mind me asking, are you using it just for scents or therapeutic reasons? For scents, the dosage can be a lot less than therapeutic reasons.
Like 2% makemineirish mentioned above, I think you are using it as 4% of the whole scent blends, right? Not 4% of the total salt bar fragrance.

this thread comes a tad too late for me. I bought some cade essential oil not realizing how smoky it was. I put a goodly amount in some sample beard oil combo that now, I find myself diluting for the fourth time. The bright side is I have a life time supply.

4% of the blend and it was still too much (at least for now). I'm hoping it morphs into something smoother in the future. I had to quarantine the soap in another part of the house so my first floor did not smell of smoke. I will still try it in the shower though. I use coal tar shampoo for dandruff and altough that stuff smells like an ashtray, the scent does not linger in the hair.

I used EO only for smell.

One combo I really like for my beard oil is pine/cedarwood/peppermint.

I used EO only for smell.

I have to quarantine my pine tar soaps,too. Smells like arson or grill without meat.
Don't worry. Salt bar need good long cure. I use it after 6 weeks but folks here have reported that they like 3,6 months cure even better. ( I'm a rhino, have a thicker hide. ) By the time you use it, it sure will round out better.In fact, the perfume aficionados do prepare their EO or FO combo and let it sit for weeks (some even sit for months) so the scent blend round out and has a harmony? It's a tip worth trying.

I do something similar. I cut a 2" square of aluminum foil; I cut a cotton ball in half and put it on the square; depending on what I'm testing, I'll put 5-10 drops on the cotton ball and leave it to waft into the open air. Once I decide it's a keeper, I fold the foil over the cotton ball and rubber band it to the bottle... for sniffing as it matures.

SHORT STORY: When I ran this test on Lemon Eucalyptus EO, I put the foil near the light bulb on the wall next to the stairs to the basement. Every time I went down there, that lovely lemon mint scent wafted up -- time, after time, after time! I wish all EOs would do that! I left it there for probably a year before putting it away and it was still "there".

UPDATE: the soap still smells like burning rubber, but I found that it is very effective at removing offending smells. I prepared a lot of fish for the smoker today and decided to wash my hands with that soap since the scent is so strong. The fish smell disappeared completly.

Might be an option if you go fishing a lot. I know that my hands and body pretty much smell like fish, worm guts and gasoline when I go on fishing trips (I have a gas powered outboard motor that I have to lug around for miles on my back to get to the good spots), so I might have found a use for this soap.

Since it's a salt bar, I could probably use it to protect myself from bears too.
