Hello, this is my very first post and I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but will blueberry powder (dehydrated blueberry juice) make a nice color for CP soap? Or how do I get any shade of blue using something natural?
Had a quick look at the recipe, it is colored with some kind of dye. Oh well! You would think that blueberries could make a good colorant, since they stain like crazy.I don't think so, but I can't swear to it.
However, here are some GORGEOUS bathbombs colored with blueberry powder!
Is the powder also blue? Like a dark blue?Had a quick look at the recipe, it is colored with some kind of dye. Oh well! You would think that blueberries could make a good colorant, since they stain like crazy.
I have read blueberry powder turns CP soap grey but have never tested it.
It is good for your skin though, it might be really good in a mask or scrub.
Suppose that's one way of recycling crayon's!! no waste!!My absolute favorite blue soap bar is made with a Cerulean Blue Crayola Crayon (Ingredients: paraffin wax, stearic acid, pigment). Use rate: 1" Crayola PPO (Per Pound Oils). You can grate it up and add to warmed oils; or nuke 10 seconds in the microwave in some of the olive oil from the batch before adding it into the rest of the batch.
Hahaha. If serious about using crayon's, I only use Crayolas and not all colors work well in soap. @Dean, sorry, the orange is one that doesn't work well.Suppose that's one way of recycling crayon's!! no waste!!
