    Colorants you can grow (or that grow in your country)

    Wow... Thanks to all of you, I'm sorry Not to thank you individually, but each of you gave me plenty to think about or to try. I'll try to find seeds for the mentioned plants, including indigo, hoping I won't need too many of them as I only have a modest garden. Clays are a goo lead too, and I...

    Colorants you can grow (or that grow in your country)

    I don't know what heirloom carrots are, I'll have a look. I'll try to powderize carrots! :) I very doubt it for tomatoes, as I see how my gazpacho is very very light red... I can grow crocus and saffron (but hell, the quantity needed would make me a billionaire or something I guess ^^ ) Well...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    Yes I use paper strips. I didn't know I had to shift up by two with this measuring. THANKS for the information! Okay, that's very weird because I thought (because I read it) the pH changed during the cure for CPed soaps, as the saponification process finishes... So you mean it's not the case...

    The Dangers of....Mica?!?!

    I personaly also have ethical issues with a product that travels more than I do... I am using Indigo and curcuma for my most recent colours, but... I haven't check yet how the people who grow them are treated... :'( Stéphanie

    Hi there!

    Hi There ! Here is my latest batch. It took it almost 2 weeks to harden, but I'm happy with it, with the colours and the scent which for once I managed to keep present in the finished soap... Happy Bubbles! Stéphanie
