Hi all I was following a recipe today that called for 14 g of lavender essential oil for 1,300 gm oil. When I ran the recipe through soapcalc to check the figures I had been given their recommendation was the same. When I came to add the oil I only had about 5 g so I used it all. I only made the soap this afternoon and this is the first time I have used a scent so I am unsure what to expect but at the moment it smells so darned strong, far stronger than I was expecting seeing as I had really only used 1/3 of the amount called for. Would I be right in thinking the strength of the aroma will fade over the next 4-6 weeks? My other question is when I see people soaping on YouTube and they add their fragrance they seem to add an awful lot, would they have mixed their fragrance oil/s with some other sort of oil or when you use a fragrance oil do you have to use a lot more than you do with essential oils? I find the quantity I see being poured into each batch of soap quite confusing as essential oils come in such tiny bottles.
