: I am new to soapmaking and wanted to get some advice on fragrance oils and essential oils. My first question is what is the difference in the two? My second question is when should I add these to my soap mix? Thanks,
Fragrance oils are often artificially created and often contain alcohol. Essential oils are generally pure. Either will work but essential oils are preferred.
Add either to the mix at a light trace. Otherwise the lye will convert the essential or fragrance oil to soap and you will get very little benefit from it.
