Question: Is it recommended that I use the normal amount of fragrance when making CPOP, or can I reduce the fragrance amount, as in HP, since I'm using the oven for a bit? Thanks for any help/suggestions.
This is a toughie to answer, as it really depends on the fragrance, and your preference. For example, for my Green Irish Tweed fragrance oil that I cp'd, only .5oz per pound was enough, but for the raspberry that I cp'd, I needed a full ounce of fragrance oil per pound of oils. Do you plan on using a fragrance oil? Or essential oils?
I plan on using fragrance oils, at least for now. I know that fragrance oils vary in strength, but was just wondering if I could reduce the amount somewhat for CPOP, compared to regular CP soapmaking. :?:
Yepp, I screwed up a 4.5 pound batch this weekend because I was stupid and bought FO's from an untested source because of their good price. I will NEVER buy FO's from them again .. cheaper isn't always better.
