Here is a Dark Patchouli soap I made 5/1/2020 with a 6 color spin swirl:

The colorant usage rate below:
1) White - no colorant, just the soap base (SAO, OO, Coconut, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Castor Oil)
2) Light Pink - Rose Clay 1/4 tsp ppo [ per pound of oils]
3) Dark pink - Rose Clay 1 1/4 tsp ppo
4) Light Brown - Cocoa Powder, 1/4 tsp ppo
5) Dark Brown - Cocoa Powder,1 1/4 tsp ppo
6) Black - Activated Charcoal 2 tsp ppo.

Lastly, a meditation on end pieces:

Gorgeous soap! Nice work! May I ask, please, where did you source your Patchouli oil? I can't find anywhere reasonable. Bulk Apothecary wants to sell me a drum full of it! I just need a few ounces. Thanks! And again, congrats!

Your soap is so beautiful. I have a recipe that I only use Shea Butter but If I want to change the shea butter to Cocoa butter, should I use less? Any ideas on how I would do that?

They are awesome! I didnt know you could use cocoa powder for coloring. I just did a search to find out and came up with your post of your beautiful soaps. I can almost smell the patchouli
