"Wonderful "
COMMENTS:  Adds a nice nuanced fragrance to my earthy smelling soaps. Definitely back for the 5 pound bag for my scrub bars. I use 1 tsp PPO for the following batch: Lard, Milk, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Avocado Oil, Olive Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, Honey, Rosemary Leaves, Oatmeal, Pumice Powder, Sea Salt, Peppermint EO, Patchouli EO, Basil Powder, Tea Tree EO, Lavender EO. The recipe is really taken up a couple notches when the basil powder is added. So keeping it in stock is a must!

I Recommend This Product!
COMMENTS:  I used this in my facial soap and I could feel and see a difference almost immediately. I have fair skin and my face tends to be pink and inflamed on either side of my nose, but all of that was reduced once I started using basil powder in my facial soap. Gives my CP soap a nice soft speckled very slightly yellowish green.
