aroma + ingredient primer

as makers, it's easy to appreciate everyone's unique esthetic and tastes. we celebrate this by offering custom options. we are limited by formula constraints and oil percentage loads. one percent too much and the whole formula can collapse, so we cannot add extra oil to increase scent profile. for this reason, no substitutions or exceptions can be made. thank you for understanding : )
