which additive oils to superfat with?

Some have similar properties, so I wondered how you choose. I am making a soap tonight with Grapefruit EO and sweet orange EO. My base oils are palm, olive, and coconut. I was going to add either jojoba, wheatgerm, avocado, sweet almond, or grapeseed oil. Any thoughts on which to add?

Thanks!

If you are CPing it doesn't matter what you add as a superfat and what you add originally. Lye doesn't care what in what order you add your oils; most of the saponification happens in the mold.

If you are HPing, it will depend on what your goal is with the soap.

I am doing CP, but I was meaning more as to which ones to choose when so many have similar properties. Like choosing to superfat with sweet almond oil or jojoba oil? Wheatgerm oil or Grapeseed oil?
