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.
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?
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.
My husband got me
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?
We put 1 oz of eucalyptus EO in here and it's just so strong. I know the scent will fade once it is fully cured but right now it's strong. I heard it's a nice combo though that's why we wanted to try it.
