    Boric acid is found in the Pharmacy aisle at your local big box store, usually near the peroxide. You can get it online here: Amazon.com

    Stearic Acid is available here:
    Amazon.com:

    Cocoa butter has a pretty rich scent on its own and few essential oils will blend with it but you could try Lavender EO. The use of Fragrance oils is NOT recommended, use Essential oils- must less chance of skin reactions/allergies.
    ~Enjoy!~
