    RIP Green Fig from Brambleberry :(

    RIP to the fragrance oil Green Fig from Brambleberry! It wasn’t a fragrance I enjoyed on its own, but mixed with other floral fragrances it really made the scents come alive.

    FO Winners & Losers

    I'm testing FOs from a batch of tarts I made over the holiday and have come across some absolute gems. Our extended families prefer wax melts to wicked candles so these are what have come out as good performers for me, but as always YMMV. I'll update as I continue to test. I hope this helps...

    Does anyone have WSP's Lime Mint FO?

    I'm wondering how it performs in your CP recipes & the percentage of liquid to solid oils/butters in the recipes. A few reviews on the site say this FO accelerates trace, a couple say it didn't. WSP reported no acceleration in their testing, but their recipe is 75% liquid oils, which is not...

    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...

    Fragrance Oils in Canada

    I hope this is the right section to post this - it's been a while since I've been around! Does anyone know which companies selling/shipping FO to/within Canada are "up to date" or not SUPER backlogged right now?

    Ground water contaminants from fragrance oils

    I looked into a new fragrance oil and it says that even small concentrations could be harmful to groundwater. I made a batch of soap with it, and am seriously wondering if the levels used in soap are really going to have a negative impact on the water we drink. I'm just kinda shocked with tons...

    I am using a fragrance from NG that recommends using no more than 5%. I don't know if that is 5% of my oils or 5% of the total soap that is produced. And how would I figure that?

    Nature's Garden vs WSP?

    Thinking about switching from WSP (wholesalesuppliesplus) fragrance oils to Nature's Garden oils but I'm a little nervous about how they compare.
