  1. Alicia Ramirez says

    I have been told that Cinnamon creates skin irritation.

  2. Answers to the essential/fragrance oil question:

    The essential oil will come from the fruit/flower itself, it will be of unparalled quality next to the fragrance oil. The fragrance oil may well be made up of synthetic ingredients which don’t have the natural health boosting properties of the essential oil.

    Hope that’s helpful!

  3. How much soap is this for? 1 pound? 3 pounds?

  4. Orange zest is the orange part of the skin of an orange – you use a very fine grater (usually called a zester) to get the orange skin off without getting any of the white pith (which is the bitter part of the skin).
