wsp suggests: Add no more than 1 tablespoon of fragrance oil or 1 teaspoon of essential oil per pound of soap.

and that's what i have always used.

I agree w/ Barb. I find even if you add more, you do not get more scent. It seems to reach saturation at those points so any additional would be waste & your M&P might force it out & it will be an oil slick on top of your bar :? .

There are a couple of sites that suggest 1oz per pound of M&P but please remember, they are trying to sell fos, so for them, the more you use the better.
