I do not care for patchouli one bit, but if you type that in the search bar, it will bring up lots of ideas of what folks blended it with.

I'm not a huge Patchouli fan but I sell a whole lot of straight up Patch. Orange blends nicely with it as does a bit of lavender though I'm not a fan of that either.

I don't like cedarwood alone, but it goes well with sweet orange.

Mountain rose herbs has common EO listed with EO compliment each other. Try their suggestions. But organic EO price for soap is just too much, haha!

I hate patchouli, but all of my family members love it and my sister has a bunch of patchouli EO she'll never use, so I mix it with orange. Makes it so I can bear it, and my family is happy, but I'm still not a fan.

I don't know about Cedarwood.

I get a lot of stuff from Vitacost, but my local health food store as decent prices on EOs, so I buy from them too.

Another patchouli and orange fan. I use cedarwood with lemongrass or lavender. For a supplier, I've been happy with Camden Grey.

I just checked my email, and Soap Making Resources has a sale through 10/15.

No coupon code is needed to qualify for the free 64 ounce olive oil. Our order fulfillment staff knows that any order placed from 10/13/16 through 10/15/16 with a product total of $50 or more qualifies for a free 64 ounce bottle of SMR's olive oil.

They have also reduced the prices of many of their EOs. Depending on what you need, this could work out to be a good deal. Just thought I'd share.

I second Liberty naturals, Camden Grey and New Direction aromatics. I also like Mountain Rose.
