I like the pine, balsam, scents for winter. It reminds me of the Christmas tree.

If that is what you mean by earthy :oops: I also love Patchouli :D and for some reason, in my area, patchouli scented soap sells well.

All of my scents these days seem to be food related. I just think I *need* a wood or herb, or something to offer the non food fans.

I love Rosewood, Vetiver mixed with Patchouli is also a lovely mix! For Christmas try Clove, Frankincense, and Myrrh!

Who can afford sandalwood eo?

I bought some cedarwood yesterday, impulsively, at a gift shop. $4.50 for 15 mls. How the heck much soap can I make with that!!???

anyone got a one-bar recipe that works? hehe, I'm gonna design one.

sweetcakes's sunkissed sage is a great lemon-sage. i add just a smidgeon of cedarwood. i like arabian spice for a break from nag champa...for a zippy-fresh lemon-daisies-fresh clean morning shower i love their bonzai. it's gone before the next batch is cured out. they have a great violet-earthy/sweet.

I have to say I love pine mixes, sandalwood (I use a FO that is almost an exact match), and tanzanian clove (yum)

Juniper sage from Brambleberry is fabulous!

I'm making a big batch of that tomorrow by special request from family.

You DON'T like earthy scents?? lol

I love the smell of sage, and it blends well with so many things. Everyone's answer are great. I love earthy scents.

A lot of people like sage because it neutralizes negative energy. Technically its the smoke from the burning leaves that do it, but there should still be an aromatherapy benefit to that.

How about a nice citrussy blend? I always think of citrus in winter, because when I was little I always got an orange in my Christmas stocking - family tradition. :lol:
