When making homemade glycerin soaps, aromatic essences are very simple to incorporate. You just have to add between 1% or 2% to the melted soap. A few drops are poured when the soap is in a liquid state and mixed until it is well dissolved. The recommended amount is about ten drops of essence per 100 gr. of base soap. This is an approximate recommendation, since we can always add more or less quantity depending on the intensity of aroma we want to achieve. It is already a matter of taste. If we like more perfumed it will be enough to add more drops.
It is important to keep in mind that some of the aromatic essences have a dark yellow color, so it can dye the soap a little white. If you are looking to obtain a completely white soap it is better to opt for an essence as transparent as possible. In addition, essences containing vanillin, nitrated musks and coumarin can brown soaps.
