Oh, I'm lovin' this HP method! The EOs lose NOTHING within the soap...nothing, I tell you. It's fabulous for me, as I love the true, natural fragrances of the EOs, and so far they've been very well-received by my customers.
Don't let the rustic look of this bar fool you: it has a lovely sweet-floral fragrance (ylang ylang) that I'm hoping will linger on the skin. I'll find out tomorrow! :)
p.s. Hubby is diggin' on the "Deep Purple" Soap...loves the look and the scent -Yee Ha! :)
