So, I was wandering around the store and they have some hazelnut oil on discount. Looking at the FA profile I don't see a huge benefit to CP or HP soap.
Is this an oil that a lotion maker would want more than a soap maker? I'm interested but I think I would rather spend the money on Avocado oil.

What say you with more know how than I?

I've used hazelnut in soap and it's nice but so are many other conditioning oils. JMO, use it for lotions and lotion bars.

However, it does give label appeal if you want a specialty soap.

I used it after the cook in hp - the oil itself is supposed to be nice for the skin but not really unique, although a nice change sometimes

I use it in facial lotion with combination of botanicals and silk. It is good for acne prone skin, due its astringency. I love this light oil. For soap I use cheaper oils
