    Can you use diffuser oils in soap?

    Can you use diffuser oils in soap?

    Thanks for the great explanation, but I assume the IFRA is an american authority? I live in Spain, more particularly in the Canary Islands, and import of anything here is limited.

    Hi all. I am embarking on my first attempt at soap making and after a lot of research I have just about got my recipe sorted out and was planning to give it a go this weekend, but I want to use cucumber and aloe vera (fresh) instead of my water. What is a recommended percentage of Aloe Vera to...
