Hi,

I have a recipe that I really like that calls for 1.5 ounces of Tea Tree Essential oil. I have discovered that Tea Tree scent is not a favourite of mine. I want to make the soap again and leave out the Tea Tree oil.

So, this leads to my question. What benefit is obtained by adding essential oil ? Conditioning, lather, bubbly, hardness ??? Or...is it a scent only. Will the bar of soap be less superior by leaving it out completely ?

If I lose quality what else can I use in it's place other than another essential oil ?

Thanks once again !!!

It won't change the final product. You can us any other essential oils, just follow safety guidelines. Or leave it unscented. It depends on your target market.

As said before.....it is only for its scent.....add another you like. It's funny....Tea Tree is one of my most popular scented soaps! A lot of Japanese girls use it as a facial soap......said to have antisceptic properties. Gardeners also like it for the same reason.
