i have a passionfruit vine in my yard, and i would love to incorporate passionfruit oil in my mp soaps. i just can't find anything online that really helps much. diffusion is not going to be possible for me. any ideas?

thought about drying the seeds, but that's as far as i got..other than making an infusion using a light oil like sweet almond, i have no clue what i can do

Hmm, I don't know how, but I think you would need a huge quantity to make even a little bit of oil. Maybe some kind of an infusion would be easier?

hmmm, thanks, i have a feeling i might go that route, just want to keep the fragrance, same with guava, but the guava is easier, you have to use the very young fruits for their astringent properties....but it loses fragrance when added, work in progress.
