General home uses, the maximum usage will vary.  For cleaning purposes, the maximum usage is 5% and for diffusers, potpourri, and incense the maximum usage is 50%.

Asian Pear Lily FragranceAsian Pear and Lily Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Asian pears or Nashi pears are large, juicy fruits native to- you guessed it- Asia! They are very different from what we normally think of when we think of pears. These fruits are so juicy, in fact, that they have the tendency to bruise easily. Being so delicate, they are considered a delicacy! In addition, according to Wikipedia, in China, it is considered a social faux pas to share a pear with a friend or loved one. “Sharing a pear” (分梨) is a homophone of “separate” (分离). In certain Asian cultures- lilies are used in food applications. The lily also has an abundance of cultural and literary meanings.  So this fragrance is not only rich in smell, but also rich in meaning!

Sweetly-scented soaps! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this alluring aroma in soaps, bath oils, bath gels, and cleaning products is 5%.

(You can also try natural soap colorants, but be sure to read the page of your desired colorant fully- some soapmaking processes will cause a reaction with the natural colorants that changes their intended color.) And please, never ever use candle dye in bath and body products.
