Does someone know of a grand chart of scent extracts and essential oils that tells whether they do or do not seize?

Can everyone please tell me essential oils that do and do not seize, in your personal experience?

Thank you

Lavender, patchouli, eucalyptus, tea tree, citrus, peppermint. Those are what I’ve used with no issues. You do need to check usage rates for any you choose to use.

^^^All of the above, and I would add cedar, lemongrass and litsea cubeba.

The only one I really have trouble with is Clove Bud. You really have to work fast.

Look on the reviews of the most reliable suppliers. They will usually state how the EO/FO behaves in soaps, lotions, etc. Floral FOs sometimes make soap seize.
