    Got some new EOs but don't know how much to use

    I tried the orange and patchouli. It's a very nice combo. At first the orange was extremely strong but now it's starting to fade. Just got two new EO's today. Rosemary and Basil. Not sure if I should mix them together or mix them with something else.

    Bleeding soap

    I bet it's the fragrance with the rebatched soap. I put probably 2 teaspoons of cocoa powder, maybe more. I think I will have to try the micas because it just bleeds so much. Do any natural colorants give a good blue, green or red?

    Bleeding soap

    The first picture is a rebatch and it bleeds also. I grated the pieces and remelted them and added water. No extra colorant but the fragrance does make it brown.

    Bleeding soap

    60oz lard 6 oz coconut oil It's the drops so we just add until it's the color we want, same with the cocoa powder.

    Bleeding soap

    Sorry I meant bleeding as in when you wash your hands in the sink there is tons of color in the sink from the soap.

    Bleeding soap

    I've only been making soap for a few months but in the ones I used colorants in it's been bleeding pretty bad. I used cocoa power and I used a liquid colorant from NG. What would you suggest to use to color our soaps? Thank you in advanced.

    Roses are pink!!!!!!

    I love the transparency of them, it's quite beautiful. Also a plus that you can use them right away.

    So nice, I haven't tried melt and pour yet, does that need to cure too?

    Thanks so much :] What would tea tree be a good mix with? I've never heard of it in a soap before. They all smell so strong lol.

    My husband got me Orange Lavender Patchouli Tea tree And some activated charcoal(colorant) The only EO I used before was eucalyptus and I use about 1.5 oz for 4 pounds of soap. I would love to make an orange and patchouli soap but how much should I do?
