Several aromatherapy fragrances have notes that work well for massage soaps. Good choices for relaxing fragrances are chamomile roman, cedar atlas, frankincense, lavender, mandarin red, myrrh, neroli, rosewood, tea tree and vetiver.
Fragrance notes that rejuvenate and uplift include bay laurel, bergamot, clary sage, cypress, eucalyptus, fir balsam, grapefruit, jasmine, juniper, lemon, orange, peppermint, rose otto, sandalwood and thyme. Romantic notes include chocolate, jasmine, vanilla and ylang ylang. Various notes can be combined within one soap bar to intensify the experience. Consult a fragrance chart before selecting, because some fragrances should not be used by pregnant women or those with certain health conditions, such as high blood pressure.
