I love the colors, decided not to use any colors just to see what the "natural" color would turn out to be. As it cures it could change, time will tell
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
