Beautiful Soap & love how pretty the indigo blue is...

Use caution w/ Wintergreen EO' can be toxic if is used above the recommended amount. If you search "Wintergreen EO theirs lots of post as of late...

For about 2 cups soap I added 2 T boiling water to 1/2tsp indigo powder that I had on the warmer spot on the stove. The water did dry while I was preparing so I added approx 2 T sw almond oil.
I don’t think there’s worry about toxic wintergreen. I only had a 15 ml bottle of YL(ya, pretty expensive choice but it’s all I had😕) so used some peppermint also. It did thicken up quickly and got gloppy for an in the pot swirl(itps?) Doesn’t smell much at all sadly but still smells good😕. At least it’s pretty 😁

Thank You.gif
I can't help but wonder if
(1) it will fade during cure?
(2) if you can duplicate it? 🤔

So happy with the blue indigo finally working. Orange is orange peel with a little red clay because my red clay is more orange than red. Scented with orange peel, orange x5, wintergreen and peppermint.
Very pretty!

Looks very "beachy," is that what you were going for? Whatever you were going for, the soap looks just amazing, I'd buy it if I passed by right now even though I have tons!
