    Does lime eo stick in cp soap by itself?
    Any lime/ ____ bestsellers?

    I was told on an older thread on here that the citrus scents like lime and orange and lemon have to be mixed with something like litsea, patch, etc for them to stick and not fade. But maybe one of the more seasoned soapers will answer that question. I soooo love lime EO, especially Lillians.

    I'm no expert but I did a one part lemongrass eo to two parts lime eo and my whole house smells like citrus! It's still strong smelling and about one month old.

    They don't stick, yes use litsea or patch to seat the citrus scent, it only takes drops to seat it.
    you will be much happier with it

    right last year I used orange/lime and lemongrass and tho it still smells a tad is not holding up like it should.
    I didn't know that hint at the time.

    Lime with just a bit of patch is divine!
