Hi all! As we all know herbs introduce bacteria and other germs to products. But do we have to avoid infused oils with botanicals (calendula,lavender etc) to our creams/ lotions/liquid soap even when adding a preservative? I dont think it has to do only with water systems, but also for a non water system such as a beeswax balm... I ve seen a lot of people using them on a bar soap though, but pH is too high on soaps... I am sorry if its goofy question again but i would like to know your view as i am a little bit confused Edit: I am really sorry for the wrong section. I would like to post it on the "Bath and Body subforum "
