Great in blends for CP soap

I use this in just about every batch of CP soap I make - I may add a fragrance ( fruity or floral ) but generally put this at 10ml along with the fragrance. It keeps acceleration in check, it holds it's smell really well over time, and it blends with almost any fruit or floral scent without taking over.
