Adding Essential Oil

After you've neutralized the soap, but while it's still hot, it's time to add your fragrance and color, if desired.

I generally fragrance my liquid soaps at about 2-3%. So for this batch this was about 3 oz. of fragrance. I used a combination of lavender and bois de rose essential oils.

Add the fragrance to the soap and stir well. Likewise, if you're adding color (remember to take the amber color of the soap base into your coloring), add it a few drops at a time, stirring well.
