Lotion bar loses scent when cooled and hard...

14 years ago

Hi, I have thus far made only a few batches of lotion bars, and this is the first I've had to lose it's scent! I used a basic recipe...equal parts of liquid oils, butters, and beeswax. I added 1.5 tsp of eos...eucalyptus and peppermint. It smelled wonderful when I mixed it, but when it cooled down and hardened, I couldn't smell the eos at all! So, I thought I didn't add enough. I then melted them back down and could immediately smell the eos still present when it was in liquid form...but I added another .5 tsp of eo still smelled great (very strong scent), but the same thing happened when it cooled down...I can barely smell anything. Anyone have any clue as to what is going on? Any help would be appreciated!
