best/worst

The best scented bar soaps at my store were not necessarily the all natural ones. It is a common mistake that consumers and customers make that if it is made with vegetable oils then the rest of the soap is natural too. This is not true.

In the beginning, I made only essential oil soaps. Unfortunately, I would get requests for all sorts of scents and fragrances not were not natural. Surprisingly, I would have people insist that the Jasmine bar that they bought from somewhere was all natural. Unless you paid $300 for the bar, it wasn’t. Because essential oils and fragrances involves some learning and research, most people are unaware. Just like I was. Unfortunately, this is what unscrupulous soap makers are counting on when they sell you soap.¬† Even places where I have bought soap, I’ve seen them start offering fragrance oil based scents because of the demand. Here’s the top selling scent, Egyptian Musk, in a perfume:
