Super clean
I have strong happy associations with the smell of Murphy's Oil Soap, so I made CP soap with this. I also tried two other blends - one with sweet basil EO and another with geranium - in soap. The basil blend is very fresh and lively. I liked it so much that I'll try Lemon Eucalyptus with other cooking-herb essential oils.

Smells like ....
This smells just like Murphy's Oil Soap. Hopefully it will be good for the bugs!

Hi Rachel! Our Lemon Eucalyptus Essential Oil definitely has a camphorous base note with a lemony top reminiscent of citronella. If you're looking for other herbal scents you may like Karma Essential Oil, Lemongrass Essential Oil, or Spearmint Essential Oil.
