    Being infused it won't likely survive the lye monster in CP. Most things that are infused and not true EO don't survive saponificiation unfortunately.

    Thanks for sharing your experience. I’ve been trying essntial oil brands and none seems to be to my liking so I’ve decided to make them myself by using ingredients from https://sportsinside.co.uk/departments/herbs-natural-remedies/aromatherapy/essential-oils.html or buy in local stores. what might be the outcome/risk?

    I'm sure there are more reliable source for EO than what you've posted. If making soap and paying those prices it will get really expensive.

    I have made several batches of goat milk based CP soap, and used a combination of frankincense and rosemary EO with great success. The scent has lasted and my kids even enjoy it.
