What scents are available? Do you have a list?
Any and every scent you could imagine can be used to in the creation of your products. We tried once to make a complete list from our suppliers and found that within 1 month, the scents on that list were changing at a rapid pace and we could not keep up. It is much easier to for our clients to paint us a picture of what they want, and from there we can provide them with multiple options.

Bramble Berry has amazing fragrance oils and has been a mainstay in the soaping and bath product world for years.
Anne Marie is the going to person if you want to learn about a particular item and has changed the course of soap making as we know it.
