Anyone with experience using woad?
Do you make an oil infusion, add to lye water, or just put in directly.

Lots of places talk about indigo but not woad and how much to use ppo.

Also, has anyone experience fading with woad?

there is nothing saying against it, Chinese use it as medications, but it is toxic internally. Should not be toxic to skin, I think, The only worry is that it can stain the skin.
Maybe someone used it in soap and will chimm in

I don't have too much experience with it but what I've read says to make an oil infusion. It's colors to a steel bluish gray.
