    Thank you for the advice Kerry Pearson, I can’t wait to try the rose geranium recipe 😊

    Hi Linda,
    That sounds lovely.
    I would go with 30gm rose geranium essential oil if I were swapping that out

  • Linda Kilminster

    I made this soap today. I used about half the recommended amount of colour and it turned out a lovely shade of jade. I can’t wait to try it. My question is about fragrance. If I want to swap the fragrance oil for rose geranium pure essential oil and use pink colouring, how much EO would I use?
