I'm going to start by admitting I made two big mistakes to get myself into this mess. I looooove the smell of spearmint, and since I already had all my soap supplies out from making my book challenge soap, I decided to squeeze in a quick spearmint soap. I made my lye, and melted my hard oils. With my pitcher of oils on the scale I added my EO and realized I didnt have nearly the amounted I needed. That was mistake 1. So I ran across the street to the grocery store and saw a brand I've never tried before was on sale and bought that instead of my usual brand. I ran back home, and started adding this new EO. That was mistake 2. I should have smelled it first. This brand of EO smells like no spearmint essential oil I have ever smelled before. It smells like old chocolate peppermint candy, but not the good kind- the kind that gets left at the bottom of the hard candy bowl unwanted. It is so bad I decided to start the whole batch over. I already ruined my oils by pouring the EO right in, and I've poured them into a spare jug in hopes they dont have to go to waste. Can somebody please recommend to me an EO blend that will work with the spearmint already in the oils and cover the sickly-sweet chloroform like smell of the bad EO? For more info the good spearmint EO brand was Healing Solutions with .25oz added. The bad EO brand was Aura Cacia with .28 oz added.
