HI ALL

I'm wondering how much EO is okay to add to 227 grams of melt and pour? I have been noticing that my soap smells great in the bar, but does not linger on the skin. I'm using about 5-10 drops in 227 grams. With FO I'm using double that, I find them weaker. Any oils that help enhance the smell? Or a particular base that holds smell better?

Every essential oil or fragrance oil is different. There is no one size fits all. Some tend to fade. For 227 grams of MP base, I would say you need about 6-7 grams of scent. 5-10 drops is not enough. It also depends where your scent and your base came from. The craft store bases are mediocre quality.
