I was trying to get a sort of Hemp like scent, it's very pleasant, but not like the Hemp fragrance I have used before.
In case you have any idea how to come closer to that scent, let me know please.
Just to clarify:
The tallow that I use for the soaps is organic, but it's not officially
I use Essential oils from reputable sources
(Pure Nature, Zen Aroma, Beautiquip), but they are not organic either.
(It's just too expensive for me at this stage to look into buying organic essential oils, in case you're wondering why).
*Please note that I don't put any extra glycerine into the soap - this is just the glycerine that is created naturally during the soap making process.
According to NZ labelling rules the final ingredients of a product have to be listed.

|It's important to note that while essential oils have gained popularity for their natural origins, they can be potent and should be used with care. Essential oils may trigger allergies or skin sensitivities in some individuals, and their usage often requires dilution and proper knowledge. Which is why we’re very careful in our usage of them and often prefer to use Fragrance oils. We adhere to European safety regulations and never put more than 3% into our oils and usually use a mix of Essential oils to really be on the safe side here. As with our fragrance oils, we only buy from reputable sellers.
