    How does everyone keep the scents in cp soaps ? I only use essential oils and I feel like every time I go and cut my bars the smell is almost gone!

    I also only use essential oils, but mine seems to stay put. How many ozs are you using per PPO?

    I use .5 ppo and mine stay as well. What EO's are you using? I personally like FO's better, they scent seems to stay stronger and the price is so much better.
