Strong and accelerates trace

This EO has an amazing scent - fresh basil - but please be advised it’s very strong. Even a small percentage will take over any other scent in blends. Does accelerate trace a lot and even rices. CP soap should be poured at the lowest possible temp and I suggest avoiding individual molds.
