Kenna is creating EOcalc.com for easy & safe essential oil usage!

Hey there, superstar! I’m Kenna, the owner and founder of Modern Soapmaking, a massive soapmaking + biz website that hosts tons of free & premium content about handmade soap and running a soapmaking business.

In 2016, I decided to take a big leap and launch a resource for the soapmaking community called EOcalc.com. My goal was to create a tool that helped soapmakers and cosmetic formulators use essential oils in their products safely, making the complicated IFRA guidelines easy to follow and giving away tried and true essential oil blends for use in making soap and cosmetics.

About the EO Calc

The Essential Oil Calculator is a huge library of 200+ essential oil blends that are free to use by soapmakers and cosmetics formulators, no matter if they are a hobbyist or business owner. The Essential Oil Calculator also calculates safe usage rates according to IFRA guidelines for any type of product.

The initial development of EOcalc.com cost thousands of dollars and was largely supported by  a successful crowdfunding campaign. The initial blends in the essential oil calculator were from my own formulary, and additional blends are added by the community all the time.

Every month, EOcalc.com helps thousands of soapmakers and cosmetic formulators access reliable information, but that comes at a cost. There have been several feature requests, such as adding metric options for usage rates and leaving reviews on blends, that we'd love to add, but we can't foot that bill alone. Additionally, the calculator costs a pretty penny to keep online.

Most other similar tools in the industry use advertising banners to fund the expenses of the tool, but I want to keep Adwords and other banner advertisements off the calculator. You can help me do that by supporting the project here on Patreon!

The Essential Oil Calculator is updated once every quarter. During the update, we add new essential oil blends contributed by us and the community, add a few new essential oils to the available options, adjust usage rates or constituent levels, and other updates as necessary.

How Patreon Works

Patreon is like a virtual tip jar, where you get to say, " Hey, what you are doing is awesome! I want to help you keep doing the good deed!" and I get to say, "WOW, you rock! Here's a few extra perks! Enjoy!"

If you like or use the Essential Oil Calculator, you can help me keep it online and update-to-date by becoming a patron: pledging to donate a monthly tip, even if that's $1 a month. ( Hey, I'm not judging - I super seriously thank you!) At different levels of pledges (check the rewards out!), there's more cool stuff for you to enjoy!

Before I created the Essential Oil Calculator, I offered two compilation ebooks of some of my favorite essential oil blends.

Many of the essential oils in these ebooks are not in the Essential Oil Calculator yet, as their essential oil components have not been added to the calc.
