  1. Candle Science Reviews
    Any scent that says bath/body is fine for soap.
    I have used some scents from there at 1 oz per 2 lbs when I only had a 1 oz sample but generally use 1 oz per pound of soap. The cherry was great at 1 oz per 2 pounds.
    I personally prefer fresh fruity/berry scents and herbal scents.
    I’ll list which ones I’ve tried for you but you may have scents you like that I don’t and vice versa.

    I don’t oven process. I will stack molds in soaps that need a forced gel but that is all.

    Becky,

    I just ordered the Cranberry from Candle Science yesterday. I also ordered a few 1 ounce samples to soap. I think I ordered a few that you didn't mention. I'll let you know how they work in CP and post the results on the forum.

    I've done a few that becky didn't list, I used them all at 1 oz for 2lbs:

    Antique Sandelwood-no A or D, I don't like this much myself, too strong
    Chardonnay- no A or D-I think this smells gross! But I've sold some and it seems to be a love or hate thing!
    Milk Chocolate-no A D to dark brown, just light enough to see some of my cocoa swirls-needs a little bit more scent
    Mediterannean Fig- no A or D-this was my free sample and everyone loves it! Plenty of scent

    I'll also add that the plumeria has A twice now for me and riced once. I was able to work with it "Just" and the bars came out okay, I do like the scent-Becky what is your secret!

    I also have the Baby Powder may soap that today.
     
  6. I havethe baby powder too and Asian Amber still to try.
    I don't know why the Plumeria did not accelerate for me but I only used theirs once. It is nice, just ususally get it elsewhere.
    I want to try the fig sometime.
    Sara,
    I ordered Mulberry from Susan Anderson yesterday.
    BTW when ordering from CS if you ask they will send a free FO with every order.
