    Depends on your use. Are you looking for scent or 'medicinal' value?

    I need it mainly for the scent.

    Lavender EO has given me very consistent results EVERY TIME. The soap always turns out nicely, cures quickly, and gets picked up and sniffed the most, according to the clerks at the stores where I sell it. I've heard that lavender gurus prefer the bulgarian lavender, and that is what I use. I can't really tell the difference between that and the French. Last year I got a 2.2 lb. bottle from Essential Oil University.com for $49. Now it is up to $95! :( I normally use 2.5-3 oz per 9lb batch and the scent holds nicely. This is one soap that I am sure to always have a good supply of. It's a sure seller. :D
