If you have ever been frustrated by the lack of proper information and safe usage guidelines on the web, you have found a safe haven among the nonsense online!
This essential oil calculator exists to bring safe essential oil usage to the masses and help formulators explore natural fragrances through blending.
If you aren’t sure what essential oils to blend together, take a peek at the essential oil blend library to find hundreds of blends submitted by Kenna and the rest of the Modern Soapmaking community.
If you aren’t sure how much of an essential oil you should use, use the blend rate calculator to find safe usage rates based on the IFRA standards and published scientific data.

About Kenna & Modern Soapmaking
Tallyho! I’m Kenna, the owner and founder of Modern Soapmaking. (I’m waving. Right. Now.) I started soaping in 2004 as a hobby, and spent years perfecting my techniques, formulas, and knowledge.
I’ve owned and operated two different soap brands, and hosted an annual conference for soapmakers in the midwest for three years. I’ve spoken at numerous soapmaking gatherings and events, hosted plenty of classes, and shared my knowledge in dozens of publications. Nowadays, you can find me over at Modern Soapmaking, helping soapmakers tackle their dreams and follow their passions.
All soap makers have lives outside soap making right? Well, I hardly do (and I like it very much so!)
On the outside world, I can be found with my camera in hand in the great outdoors, gaming with my husband, reading non-fiction, or enjoying my family of six happy peeps (yes, we have four littles!) I have an extreme weakness for caramel frappucinos, organic citrus infused milk chocolate, electronic music, nail polish, and working at 3 am. Because let’s be frank, that’s when kids are asleep. (85% of the time, anyways...)
