    Ok soapers, I thought it would be fun and interesting to see what is everyone's favorite blend of EO's, EO's to Fo's or Fo's to Fo's.
    Do share your favorite and maybe share at what rate, so maybe we can all try.
    I am too much of a newbie to have a favorite yet. I have not mixed enough!!
    I am still out on the liking of bulgarian lavendar EO and 5 fold orange EO :/ it is growing on me.

    I haven't mixed much. I do get some FO blends. My newest favorite is Lavender Cucumber sage, I also like lavender and vanilla. I did blend the CS apple jack and peel (which I hate!) and added some very expensive Idaho Balsam Fir EO for a Christmas milk bath and drawer sachets. The fir is incredible and you only have to use drops for a strong scent. I love Ylang Ylang and I hear it is heavenly with Sandalwood..I keep meaning to try that.

    I haven't mixed too much either, but I really liked the chocolate and coconut FOs I mixed. I did it about 60% chocolate to %40 coconut and it came out really nice, but I will probably go 50/50 next time to bring out more of the coconut.

    I also mixed in equal parts Grapefruit EO, Lemongrass EO, and Sweet Orange EO and I LOVE that one! It's one of my favorites. I'm not a big lavender fan, but I mixed 50/50 Lavender EO and Sweet Orange EO and I like it very much.

    That's about the extent of my mixing though. I get a little nervous mixing if I'm not sure what to expect.

    I like 50/50 spearmint eucalyptus. That's the only blending I've done in soap. But I'm going to try some lavender blends.
