    Oat milk in soap shelf life

    EO in dog soap

    Hi, I have recently started making soap and made a recipe for a dog shampoo. When it is slightly more cured, I am going to test the pH to make sure it is right for dogs but until then, I was wondering about the dosage of essential oils. I've made a lavender scented loaf, where I steeped dried...
