Buying FO's from a candle supply can be iffy if candles is their main business. Even though they are body safe they are not necessarily designed to work well in soap. It also applies to companies that specialize in m&p like Essentials by Catalina. While they have some very nice FO's many of theirs will not play nice in lye soap, because they supply m&p bases, lotions, scrubs etc.I either use EO from brambleberry or Majestic Pure or Sun from Amazon. Fragrance oils are either brambleberry or a local candle supply store that gives instructions for using thier FOs in soap.
Lye is from the hardware store. It says 100% pure lye.
