Gentlest way to add scent to a product? (Rose water? Cucumber? Some essential oils? Calendula?)

Has anyone seen any data on this? The least skin sensitizing least risk of allergic reaction good smelling substance you could add to a product? :)

I really like the smell of e.g. Geranium, but I'm not sure it's particularly gentle.

    Coffee bean oil. It is a popular scent and very few people are allergic to it.

    Think i'll try rose water or cucumber, not a lot of reports on allergic or sensitizing reactions with those! But would be interesting to see some comparative data, also, obviously, depends on amount.
  • ask the supplier of these essential oils to send you their allergen statement and msds?
