    Fragrance oil measurement

    On their website they added each recommended for melt and pour , cps , candles & etc . Would this not be a safe fragrance oil to use since it’s 1-1.5% ?

    Fragrance oil measurement

    It’s Natures oil Burberry for men I thought it was very low as well. That’s why I was so confused :/ I’m thinking maybe the scent is strong ?

    Fragrance oil measurement

    I bought a fragrance oil it is 2 Oz and it said recommend measure meant for cold process is 1-1.5% . I’m still new to soap making so does that mean 1-1.5% of the weight of my batch I’m making ?? Thank you ! :)

    Unmolding soap

    I am making an olive oil & coconut oil cold process soap. How long should I wait to take it out of the mold and cut the bars ?? I waited about 12-16 hrs when i made a 100% coconut oil and it would break / crumble while cutting it . My mistake in not knowing I should only wait about 4 hrs or so .

Thank you so much...
