When to add FO?


Recommended Posts

Does the majority add FO after trace? I read somewhere today that you can add fragrance to the lye solution - I've never heard of that. I've always added my fragrance oils post-trace.

Is this something new or have I been living under a rock?:confused:

I add mine to the oils - that way I make sure it's well incorporated, which can be important if you have an FO that makes the soap thicken really fast. Plus I don't forget it in the fun of the swirl!

ETA - if the FO discolors the soap and I want a swirl without that - then I can't add it to the oils and add it after I pull out the soap for the swirl (very light trace, or even at emulsification).
