When testing in Paraffin and Soy waxes, an 8 oz jar filled the room and lingered all through the house.......awesome scent!

Directions:
BATH & BODY PRODUCTS: 1-3% is considered the general "skin safe" ratio for lotions, creams, bath salts, fizzies, scrubs, body butter, salves, shampoo, conditioner, body spray, shower gel, etc.

COLD PROCESS (CP) SOAP: 0.7 - 1 oz per lb. Delicate florals should be batched at cool temps.

If a fragrance doesn't note it's compatible in HP, is it? Typically, if it's CP compatible, then yes, it's HP compatible. Usually, the exception is fragile florals (jasmine, gardenias, etc) and essential oils. Add fragrance oils last, after the cook phase or at trace and right before pouring into mold...this way there is less evaporation from the prolonged heat. However, you must stir this rather thick mixture very thoroughly.(For both Hot process in the oven, in a pot, or in a crockpot).

FIXING A SEIZE! Hot-Process is a great way to fix a CP seize in the pot.
Hot processing on the stove or in a double boiler setup to save a seized batch. You will typically need to add an extra ounce of water per lb of soap to make it easier to stir and to smooth into your mold, but this is an excellent way to fix a batch that has seized. You don't want to "cook" the bottom of your pot, so keep heat very low or use a double boiler to ensure your soap doesn't burn. Add your extra water and heat; it will go into the gel phase fairly quickly and only needs to "cook" a little longer to make pouring into the mold easier. It will not be liquid like CP soap, but it should be made fluid enough to smooth into a mold without lumps and air bubbles. Patience here is the key, as you will need to cure as long as with CP simply to allow the extra water to evaporate fully. You may choose to use less water to get a harder bar faster, BUT this will result in a thicker "glob" of soap that will be difficult to smooth into your mold, so the final texture of your soap may suffer.

MELT & POUR (MP) SOAP: 1 TBS per lb, up to .5 oz per lb or 1-3%

PARAFFIN WAX: 1 oz per lb. (Average usage of fragrance oil is approx. 6 - 7% per lb.)

SOY WAX: 1 oz per lb. unless otherwise noted

Note: The above are general guidelines. Individual testing and formulating is necessary

COMMENTS:  A perfect blend of the balsam and citrus. Not overpowering, and not a "Pine-Sol" smell. Just right for so many applications; terrific stick in CP soaps and very popular w/the guys!

COMMENTS:  I love this fragrance oil – it’s a nice outdoorsy scent that reminds me of a fragrant forest. This fragrance oil did dramatically change the color of my melt-and-pour soap, though. It turned my clear base orange-red and my white base bright pink. Definitely experiment with this fragrance oil and plan your color schemes accordingly. If you can find a way to work with the discoloration, it can be very pretty!

COMMENTS:  WOW... this is a GREAT one! Definitely add to your holiday-themed soaping to-do list! I soaped this warm in a shea butter and tallow CP batch. Colored with green clay and a little green pop mica. Soaped with ease, no Acceleration at all. Unmolded perfectly. No Discoloration either and the scent is amazing at 1 oz ppo. Beautiful BALSAM scent blended with a very upscale citrus. AMAZING! Can you tell I'm impressed?

COMMENTS:  I soaped this a few weeks ago in some beer soap. I was hoping for a strong scent that would not be overpowered by the beer smell. It soaped beautifully and has a nice masculine scent. My hubby keeps asking when he can use it! A real winner.
