I'm a new soap maker and I'm planning to make a CP soap with carrot puree and turmeric powder. I would like to add Turmeric essential oil in it but I don't find the scent very appealing. What eo blends well with Turmeric EO. Kindly give your valuable suggestions.

I would recommend infusing the tumeric powder in oil first and straining it out before adding to the soap batch. It can feel a little scratchy -- which would be okay if you're going for a scrubby type soap. I go to Eden Botanicals for help with use rates and with blending suggestions. Here's a link:

I've bought turmeric EO and planning to blend it with Lemon EO. I've read somewhere that turmeric EO comes under the base note category. So just thought to give it a try.

Thank you so much for your reply. I'll infuse and strain the turmeric before use...
