I have been reading quite a bit this week about soapmaking. I thought I'd ask the experts....

If you use dried herbs or fruit in your soap, will it mold? Is there a way to prevent that from happening?
it will change colors over time. If you are getting the herbs from your garden, you have to make sure you clean them.. and they and fully dried. Or yes, they will mold. (if wet)

If you are purchasing them dried already... its ok.. but overtime.. it will turn brown

eta: bad spelling
smelli is refering to CP soap. Is that what you are making? M&P can take herbs, they will turn brown over time but I would NOT put food in M&P... bad moldy situation!~
