    You need a LOT more essential oils for CP soap than one might guess - here is a good calculator to get an idea of how much is needed: https://www.brambleberry.com/pages/Fragrance-Calculator.aspx
    FWIW the only companies that use the term "therapeutic grade" use it on themselves for their own purposes. I also call my wine "therapeutic grade" but that doesn't fool my friends :mrgreen:

    I use organic virgin unrefined coconut oil in my soaps and other body products. It is pure white, smells divine and is delicious in Thai curries and rice.

    Hi,

    I had a recipe that went terribly wrong. I am looking for any help anyone could offer. How do I create a new thread or forum? So far, I can only figure out how to respond to posts

    Hello and welcome.
    To start a new thread, go to Forums, then click on Beginners Soapmaking Forum. Now click on upload_2018-2-21_0-31-11.png at the top rhs of the page.

    You'll need to post your full recipe, including the superfat %, the process and any fragrance oils/ additives used in order for someone to diagnose the problem.
