Started this discussion. Last reply by Misfits Farm Sep 23, 2013. 9 Replies

"Misfits Farm -- since you mentioned thieves oil, I'm wondering if you're using Young Living oils? I know they are very pricey, so the idea of using 2-4 ounces in a batch of soap may have given you quite a shock. You can buy essential oils…"
