I know I have read this somewhere.. but for the life of me I can't find it in my stash. What is the difference between water based fragrance and oil based fragrance? I ordered some oil based from one of those 'other' suppliers a few months ago.. everything was so cheap.. thought what the heck. I get my palm oil from them. The shipping on the fragrance was nothing.. since it was included in with the bulk oil shipping. I soaped most of the fragrances.. think I got about 4 small bottles just to try. Every one I soaped seized up almost instantly. I redid on batch.. and added it just after I mixed the lye solution. After that one seized big time.. I decided.. heck.. no way was I going to mess with this any more. I figure the oil had to be cut real bad to seize up.. right? What would the water based fragrance be used for? lotions.. and the like?
