Essential Oils are a great way to add a fragrance to your soaps! I can taylor each batch of soap to the current needs of our family. Since soap has a very long and stable shelf life, we can use them again as our needs change. For example, I may put lavender in a soap to help alleviate allergy symptoms and promote a calming feeling. The calming is great for my boys since they take their showers at night right now before bed. I might choose to use peppermint and lemon for a great pick me up to use in the morning! The options are endless!
