Anybody got a rate?

Recommended Posts

Anyone got a usage rate for patch?
I don't want a "Oh, (gag) GAWD... That's PATCH..." soap...
I'm trying for more of a "(sniff) Ah, yes... That's, uh... Patchouli..." kinda soap.
KWIM? 


ETA: My original formulation has me at .5 oz PPO but I'm asking because that looks like A LOT OF PATCHOULI EO to me... 
10-Q!

Depends on the Eo itself, some are aged and smell better than fresh... 

 

IFRA I searched last considered it GRAS so safe up to 100%.  It tends to stick pretty well. My people like patch to be really patchy, so I go up to 4-5% PPO with agesd Indonesian. Love a good patch in everything. Yum.

Don't think I've ever done straight patchouli. I always blend it. I love blending it with a honey fragrance or orange so you still get that awwwww, patchouli! scent that is mellowed out but still strong. You didn't say if you are using FO or EO. When I am using EOs in my soap the majority of the time I use 1/2 oz per lb of oils. That's slightly more than 3%. 3% comes to .48oz.
