Hi guys, I hope this is in the right place... I'm not a complete newbie but I feel like this is kind of a beginner question (one that I've just avoided figuring out completely perhaps)! I'm trying to figure out usage rates for a bunch of different essential oils and fragrance oils (all from Voyageur Soap & Candle Co. in Surrey, BC, Canada). The recipe that I'll be using for all of them is below. The fragrance weight that comes out is about 30g, but... then I was looking at some different charts and there are different usage rates for different essential oils, and I'm just not sure I have it right. According to my calculations, I could use lavender EO at a usage rate of 5% (48g for this recipe, or 5% of 960g total oils), but then aniseed EO only at 1% (~10g)? Is that right? Won't the lavender smell way stronger if that's the case?... I made aniseed soap last year at a much higher percentage and it was suuuper strong, so maybe that's the reason... And as for the fragrance oils, I have 30ml bottles of each, so I'm thinking that that will be perfect (as this calculator suggests about 30g of fragrance)... I'm just scratching my head at how this all works...! For the essential oil scented soaps, I'm planning to make aniseed; lavender; bergamot/lemongrass/ylang ylang; eucalyptus/tea tree/peppermint; and orange 5-fold/pink grapefruit/sage, so far... need some guidance on how to calculate usage rates for those, I guess!
