ETA: the scent is wonderful, but it does seem at this early stage that the Anise is winning the duke out

I look forward to seeing how it cures. If that red holds, that would be just completely awesome.

Like others, I am just in awe over this red color. A great red seems to be the Holy Grail in soaping, so can't wait to see/hear how it ages!

And thank you for the preliminary EO update - that Anise is a bossy piece of business. My guess, however, is that the fisticuffs continues...

Did you use regular jager or the vanilla one? I assumed it was the regular stuff but that color is so odd. I have some of the vanilla, I should do a test batch sometime to see what it does.

I will keep everyone updated as it cures Obsidian, I used regular Jager. Again, there is no Jager in the yellow part, that is pure EO's coloring that, the red is the part with the Jager in it, I was shocked at the color too, and quite pleased. In Iowa those are Cyclone Colors And I didn't even try LOL

I just whipped up a batch of jager soap using the cinnamon vanilla. Its a reddish brown to begin with and smells like anise and cinnamon (its not very good lol)

I also only used it in half the batch so I could see the color, so far its a cinnamony orange color. I didn't have any yellowish EO's to use so I went with a champagne FO that smells like 7-up and shouldn't discolor beyond a very pale ivory. It smells super nice and the color is pleasing, not too orange or bright.

I'll post pics as soon as I can.

EDIT: My color didn't last. After gel, it faded to a barely there tan. Its still pretty but I had hoped the orangish would stay.

Obsidian, that's a bummer about the color of your Jager soap Here is mine 12 days after cutting. It seems that the red has darkened a bit to a brownish red. I'm really hoping it stays where it's at.

It does look a bit darker. Mine is odd, the color on the top faded but once I cut it, the orange inside is still there but lighter. Its almost a caramel color now. Still a nice enough color.
