Default Hair use for Oils safe for soap/lotion/shower gel

So the gears are turning here....getting creative, which only strikes once in a great while.

I make hand-poured, soy candles that are scented with many wonderful scented oils. Some of my scents are safe and used by others for soaps, lotions or shower gels. I am wondering if there is a way I could use them in any hair concoction. Ideas?

I read here you can include EO's in your FSG I have to try making the FSG FIRST though so I hope other girls can come up with other things they've tried!

if your fragrance oils are skin safe, then they can be used in hair and body products. If they are not skin safe, then they cannot.

yes, I understand that. Some fragrances of mine should stay for my candles, but some are safe for skin. I am looking for ideas on what to do with them. Perhaps add a drop or two to a conditioner? Put in with my spray refresher?

They are quite potent! When i use them in my soy candles, I use 1oz per pound of soy wax and that would equal 25-30 hours of burn time.

My first thought was FSG. A refresher spray sounds like a good idea too.
I've never done it, but you can buy premixed conditioner bases from some ingredient websites. Someone gave me the link to these conditioner flakes once (just add water-and preservative I believe). I've always thought they looked cool, but haven't tried them. You could vary the ingredients and make scented cowash, DT, PT, rinse out.

Pedaheh has got it. Check out the Recipes Forum. There are tons of ideas for all kinds of homemade goodies. I'm sure you will get some inspiration there.

oh ok. sorry I misunderstood your question.

In hair and body products, fragrance should be used at 1-2% of batch weight. I don't work with drops, I weigh my fragrances, so if you wanted to add some FO to conditioner that was 8oz (~227 grams), you would add 2.3-4.5g
