- Right here, silly!
I've personally never used a fragrance calculator and really have no need for one. I've always just looked up the safe usage rate for whatever FO that the vendor provides (or what IFRA recommends) and entered it into SoapCalc, which provides me with a basic readout in %, oz. and grams of how much I need for whatever particular batch size I've entered, which is all that I need. For EOs, I reference my Essential Oil Safety reference tome by Tisserand and Young.
I honestly don't know one would go about creating a FO calculator that could feasibly go much beyond the simplicity of what amd said above - "imput usage rate % = amount to use in batch size". Anything beyond that is going to be a huge undertaking that's just begging for a migraine, because of the myriad of variables involved. Just thinking about it makes my brain want to explode. lolHmmm... maybe I don't know what a fragrance calculator is because I thought that's [input usage rate % = amount to use in batch size] what a fragrance calculator would do. Anyone care to clue me in?
