I purchased this for use in a cold process soap but it reminds me too much of the pickle. It does have its benefits though so I would recommend blending it to give it a more amiable scent. Lavender and Lemon work nicely with it.
I really like this fresh herby scent. It is rejuvenating and earthy with warm spicy undertones.
