So I experimented with a batch scented with my favorite essential oil. Of course the whole house smelled amazing when I poured, now I have bars that came out amazing but smell like, well, nothing. I know sometimes the process takes some fragrances down a notch or two, but this is my first experience with my scent being eliminated. Do I have any options? Is there a way to rebatch and add smell back into the bars? I have only ever rebatched with goats milk. Help!

What essential oil did you use? Some of them fade more than others, and yes, there are some fixatives - and you might be able to add more in rebatching and get a bar with some scent.

Give me a couple more clues and I can help. :)

Originally I was trying for carnation, but I didn't get crazy with color or anything and there is literally no smell at all in the bar so I would be happy to scent it with any other tried and tested scent on my shelf, Im just not sure how to go about adding it at this road bump.

Okey dokey - since you're saying carnation, it must be an FO instead of actually essential oil. Where did you get it, and was it marked as safe for CP? There are quite a few that fade in CP formulas, I'm sorry to say.

My other question is, how much scent per pound of oil did you use the first time? You can add scent near the end of the rebatch process, but I'd keep it to about 1 oz. ppo total (including the initial amount) to keep from irritating the skin.

With fragrances, I usually start my first tests at .7 ounces per pound of finished soap (this works out to 4.3% of the total oils, lye and water). Then, I move up and down from there.

I've never had good luck with Carnation (which is probably why BB doesn't carry it) but you should tell your vendor that you had issues with it and see what their suggestion is on usage rate, gelling etc... Then, they might be able to help diagnose the problem with you. =)
