  1. I would consider lavender oil to be a fragrance oil – it’s an oil that has a fragrance. As you don’t explain the terminology and difference between essential oil and fragrance oil how are you supposed to know the answer?
    As you know I am having to whizz through all these modules to be able to get to the recipes to order ingredients. If you posted the ingredients at the beginning I wouldn’t have to rush through the modules before I’m ready to spend the time required to learn properly.

    I hope I can start again properly and spend more time on the answers.

    • Only because it smells it doesn’t mean lavender essential oil is a fragrance oil. Lavender essential oil is an essential oil, even though you can have fragrance oils which smell of lavender. You can find more information about what lavender oils is here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lavender_oil

      The purpose of this course is to teach you how to make soap and a lot of additional information. You should not be whizzing though the course to reach the formulas without understanding the rest of the information. This is what students usually do, and what I have recommended. Otherwise you will risk ending up with gaps in your information.

      The difference between essential and fragrance oils is explained in Module 13 – How to fragrance your soap, but you haven’t reached that module yet.
