What are you using to colour your soaps? As I am using organic oils they are very green and adding the oxides just doesn't seem to cut it at all. Any ideas on what I can do to get my soaps colouring up better?

Thanks in advance for any advice you may have.
You can buy some micas, ultramarines, oxides, Peacock colors or Select Shades. You can also use beet root, beta carotene, black-eyed susans, cocoa, calendula blossoms, cinnamon, paprika, saffron, rose hips. turmeric, resins, clays, and so many more. Companies like Oregon Trails, Mystic Mountain Sage, Brambleberry also sell other types of colorants. You will need to decide and experiment with what you like. As for me, I tend to use micas, ultramarines, oxides, clays and Select Shades and sometimes some more natural colorants.
Yeah, what CP Soaper said LOL... your good girl!

I use some liquid colorants.. you can buy good colorants from brambleberry, or soapsillywholesalesupplies...

Nice colorants.
