Hi,
I am making shave and body soap for my dad from Bramble Berry M&P shave and white base. We selected the Shave and Haircut FO and Eucalyptus FO. I would like to make aftershave for him as well. A couple questions regarding the M&P:

1) I plan to make a very small batch for the first run to test the scent/FO. Maybe two 3 oz bars of each shave and white. Do you think a Shave and Haircut FO and Eucalyptus FO would blend nicely? If so, what ratio and how much for 6-8 oz? I assuming only a few drops of each in that small of a batch?

2) We are adding Bentonite Clay to the shave soap... how much should I add for this small of a batch?

3) Through the great support here and on The Soap Queen we have heard to ensure you M&P soap is in an air tight container. If this M&P is left unwrapped in the shower, will it be ok? This is another reason we are looking at small batch size.

Thank you for any guidance!

Sincerely,
SoapyJoise

For 6 ozs. of soap, maybe 10 drops of the fragrance and 3-4 drops of the Euc. For clay, a tip of the knife should be sufficient.
MP soap will last longer if you let it dry between uses. If there is humidity, it might not last as long.
