so i have just made my first batch of liquid soap, and after a long time cooking, it turned out awesome! however, i have not yet added a fragrance, and i was made yesterday, i have seperated it into smaller containers and it has cooled. it is really clear, and smooth, perfect consistancy, can i add fragrance now? or have i waited to long?

You can add fragrance now, but be aware that some fragrances cloud up liquid soap.

Thank you! I don't mind if it gets cloudy, the final containers are going to be opaque.

I've not tried it myself but maybe using equal quantities of Tween-20 and FO could preserve the clarity. Actually this is something I need to try on my shampoo formulations when I get around to the clears.

thanks for the tip! i added some fragrance to one of the 8 ounce containers i had seperated (satsuma, mandarin, and jasmine). it did cloud up some, so i added a little tween 20, and it cleared right back up, i did notice that the fragrance oil thickened it up quite a bit, so i had to add more distilled water, lol but it smells great, and looks just as nice!

thank you everyone!

Glad it worked out for you! I just tried the same with a liquid 'soap' I am experimenting with, and it also worked well.
By the way, thick = good! Consumers see thickness as equating with quality, so the marketers say. . .

thanks! i guess i never thought of it that way,

on that note, another portion i scented today with chocolate, turned out really thin, when i added the salt mixture that my research told me to, it seemed to seperate into 2 layers, a thick creamy whiteish layer and the thin watery layer underneath, can it be saved?

Essential oils like orange tend to thin out liquid soap. For me, lavender oil thickens it.

For me, so far, the main problem is foam suppression. I want it to smell great but I want loads of lather too!

So I take it, it is best to add FO or EO after the cook, during the dilution.

Absolutely. Plus, you won't have any unwanted reaction problems due to the FO. All the KOH will be gone at that point.
