I like fragrance oils for the flexibility they give me. Essential oils are lovely but incredibly expensive! I can’t afford to use essential oils in all my recipes at the amount necessary to make the soaps smell as fabulous as they do!
Fragrance oils give me better control over the final product and make for a bar of soap which retains its smell longer.
If you’re sensitive and I know a lot of people are, please let me know. I can create unscented soap just for you at no additional cost! All soaping equipment is washed well between uses to prevent cross contamination.
