My husband and I recently started into soapmaking. We have determined our base soap and have begun experimenting with scents. SoapGoods is great for having small sizes for around $1 on most EO. I love the scent of this EO. It reminds me of walking into a lumberyard where they cut their own boards. It has depth and makes me smile.
I am very satisfied with my experience at Natures Naturals India. This Labdanum product is more an absolute than an essential oil, which is even better! With the Benzoin, they are my favorite. Labdanum is woody, ambery, sensual, and mystic.
I am amazed to have access to such a high quality rock rose essential oil at such a low price. This oil has such a sophisticated scent and a unique quality of depth rarely found in floral fragrances.
