I have heard that essential oil and its blend do not last long in cp soaps. It that true? Please guide.
I'm new at soap making amd fragrance oils are not at my disposal as compared to essential oil. Does its properties fade away due to lye present.??

It's true. In my experience, most EOs fade in about 6 months. This has been discussed many times. You can do a search to find threads about ways to help essential oils to "stick". But, not all essential oils are alike and there is much to consider. Here's a link to a thread to learn more about using essential oils in soap:
