Is it better to use a Fragrance Oil or an Essential Oil? The choice is entirely up to you and the result you are aiming to achieve.
Our pure Essential Oils come directly from the plant either via steam distillation or pressing. All are suitable for both Melt and Pour or Cold Process soap bases.
Fragrance Oils offer endless scent possibilities as they are created for any scent you like. They are not designed as perfumes, therefore should not be applied directly to skin. If you wish to do this, then you will need to consider the use of a carrier oil.
We do try and give an accurate description of the fragrances but often it is open to interpretation. Therefore we recommend you try a small amount first especially in cold process soap making where often a fragrance can give unexpected results.
We supply our oils in 30ml size in bottles with dropper caps. For larger amounts (100ml, 500ml) the oils will be in aluminium bottles without a dropper cap.
If you are planning to use a fragrance oil in your CPSR then please contact us first to make sure we will stock it long term to avoid disappointment. Often fragrances come and go and we make no guarantees that we will always have a particular fragrance in stock.
