    Any real way of finding/figuring out fragrance oil weight online?

    So I'm new to soapmaking, starting to look into incorporating scents into my soap. Golden rule up to this point of course being, measure by weight, not volume. However, every website seems to exclusively sell their product in mls, not g(rams). Some I've even found have links to recipe...

    Citrus Scents in CP

    This may be a silly, basic question but...I know citrus EOs do not fare well in CP because the scent tends to fade/not make it through the saponification process. Would using an FO take care of that problem? If citrus FOs do well in CP - what are some of your faves/go-tos? I currently use...

    Additive Timing Preference

    As I was studying how to make CP soap, I noted than a woman on Youtube preferred to add her extra ingredients such as kaolin clay and coloring powder to the oil before mixing it with the lye solution. However, she waited until after emulsion to add FO/EO. What do you guys prefer? What order do...

    I'm trying to work out a scent blend for several Appalachian themed soaps (CP, for Halloween) and after poking around on this forum a bit I found this thread (https://www.soapmakingforum.com/threads/ifra-banned-restricted-oils.39296/) that mentions a few oils I had planned on using. I guess it...

    has anyone heard of coconut essential oil?! Is there such a thing? I’ve searched it up and there’s one company that carries it. It’s CO2 extracted. ?! But I’m so sure about it.

    Carrier oil for EO AND FO?

    Hello y’all! I’m a newbie here. I’ve been making a few different bath products and I did learn long ago that my essential oils need a carrier oil. I have always just assumed that my fragrance oils need a carrier oil as well. I just realized I have no idea if that’s true. I did Google but I...

    fragrances % question

    Hey guys, What do you do when a fragrance oil discolors the soap, but you want a white/light lets say swirl. Do you up the % of fragrance of the rest of the batter or simply reduce the amount of fragrance oil so the soap will have a milder smell? Thank you!

    Fragrancing aftershave

    I made a fantastic shave soap and I'm wanting to make a matching aftershave. I have the base recipe worked out, but the fragrance is hanging me up. I'm not sure if I'm restricted to EO's.
