My favorite Is the one from WSP, it has EO & FO but their prices have gone up so much I wouldn’t buy it even if on sale. I once bought the one from Nature’s Garden but disliked it so much out of the bottle I never even tried it (sold it). I also tried blending eucalyptus FO and spearmint FO from Lone Star Candle. Over time it was good but not as good. (Initially it had a chemical smell)

Do you mean the Headache one? Yeah I can confirm that one is SUPER strong.

Nature's garden peppermint redistilled and eucalyptus globulus EOs come out cheaper overall (probably even if you consider shipping)...maybe go that route?

@Megan no, I meant their Eucalyptus Spearmint EO & FO blend. I did not know they had a headache one. I do have their sinus blend though, which has a strong camphor note. That’s a great idea with the EO’s!

At least it will smell authentic right? In my experience I use far less of those two EOs than I would FO in soap anyway...so it may work out to not be so expensive in the end.

True, and I was surprised when using spearmint EO in a hot process soap, that I could still detect it in the soap a year later (Faintly though), and I had not kept it wrapped or anything.

I like Eucalyptus Spearmint from American Soap Supplies. If memory serves me correctly, I used it at 5.5% PPO and the scent retention was very good. I'm at work so don't have access to my notes - I'll verify later. I've only used it in CP.

Note - her prices are good, she ships very fast, and refunds any shipping overages. I just wish she had a storefront because she's only about 30 minutes from my house.
