Do you have any good recipes that include essential oils and fragrant oils in lotions and/or liquid castile soap? - Anonymous Plugoo User
Essential Oils and Fragrance Oils can both be used to add scent or properties to lotions and liquid soaps.
Here's a simple lotion recipe that uses some of my favorite Essential Oils. Blossom Body Cream can also be made with Fragrance Oils, just leave the Essential Oils out of the recipe, and add one teaspoon of your favorite Fragrance Oil in its place.
You can add Fragrance Oil to Liquid Castile at a rate of 5% (about 24 ml per 16 ounces of soap) or you can add Essential Oils at between 1 - 3%, depending on the Essential Oil you are using. As always, make sure you research the safety and recommended usage for any Essential Oil before using it in a recipe. In general, the aroma of Liquid Castile Soap blends best with sharp scents such as citrus, herbs, or fruits.
