Wow, so I had about 2 oz stashed away for a couple years remembering I love it but having had comments about it being overpowering. Made a red Hawaiian Alaea salt soap with it tonight, 3 parts sweet orange 10x to 1 part white thyme. Set up on me immediately. Tried to beat it into submission but gave up, added a little distilled water, stirred the heck out of it with a whisk, spooned it into individual silicone molds and pounded for all I was worth to try to settle in the molds.

Love, love this EO, one of my all-time favorites, anyone have any suggestions on helping it behave?
I've only used it once and had no issues. I used it at 1 part white thyme to 5 parts other things I believe. Sorry I don't have anything else to add. Is it a solid recipe that normally works with other EO's?
