Fragrance Oil

Sadly there's some things you can't extract essential oil from - apples, kiwi fruit, raspberries and fairy floss to name just a few! But they DO smell amazing in soap, and that's where cosmetic grade fragrance oils come into their own.

A quality fragrance oil is a blend of various chemical components - some natural, and some synthetic. They are carefully formulated and/or blended to the exact specifications of a perfumer.

My handmade soaps contain fragrance oils that are specified soap safe, and are purchased from reputable fragrance oil companies. l love the fun and freedom they bring to the creative side of soapmaking - l couldn't bear to leave them out. But, if you prefer your soaps to be as natural as possible, stick to the Essential Oil soaps.
