Hi all! I read the article on essential oil and the calculator on BB. I want to use a lavender EO. In the article, there were general guidelines, such as .7 oz of EO for 1 lb of CP soap. Should it be the same amount for HP? Do I need to use as much EO in the soap that has already saponified?

Generally speaking, you can use less if you HP. It really depends on the EO and how strong you want your soap scented.

I use the same amount for CP as I do with HP.

I made my batch on 12/13. I used 40/42 and added the soapcalc recommendation for .5. Now, only 7 days later, the scent is barely detectable.

I think that I would have done much better using Brambleberry's fragrance calculator and used at least the "medium" strength. However, this scent is so quickly fading, that I think I need to use the "strong" amount. Very expensive scent to be using! How can people who sell soap use this EO and still make a profit?

For Lavender, I use 0.7 oz. per lb. of oils. It sticks well.

I'm having the same issue! I've read that you can use half the amount of fo or eo for hot process and it isn't coming out the way I want so I'm going to switch to the full cp amount for my hot process. It is really expensive to use eo in soap so I'm doing a line of fo soaps to kind of make up the price difference.
