So I put in a small order with Lotioncrafters and they we're selling amber extract. It's amber extract in a glycol and alcohol base. Just wondering if anyone has previous experience using this in cp soap and/or how I should treat it...I'm presuming additive and possibly subbing out any fragrance I'd normally be adding..
TIA

A friend gave me some benzoin resin in an alcohol base to try. It riced badly.

If amber is like any other resin, the scent won't come though in soap. I've been trying ways to use myrrh resin in soap, no matter how I extract it, the scent just disappears.
I will agree that is should only be used in HP, the alcohol could make CP volcano or seize.
