Hello!! I'm interested in creating a REALLY, REALLY gentle soap. Which oils/butters are considered the most gentle/moisturizing on skin? I'm going to market two different soaps from it--a bar marketed especially for sensitive skin, like babies and a luxury type bar with some different additives. Suggestions?

Now for my next question--are there any EOs that are more irritating that I should stay away from? I'd like to scent my baby bar with something very mild since I don't like the scent of "unscented" soap. I know Vicki uses Tea Tree but I don't think I'd want that for a baby.

I don't scent my baby soap at all except for lavender EO and just a bit. lots of people don't want scents in their baby stuff.

Lemon doesn't stick to well in CP anyway - unless you use something to hold it like patch like Vicki does.

I prefer lemongrass EO if I want a lemony scent without using fragrance oils. But if you want an FO that is a great Lemon try Aroma havens Lemon Verbena -NUMMY!
