If I want to use an oil infused with a natural colorant, like paprika, to only color a portion of a batch, how do I do that?

Remove the amount infused from the total oil amount in soap calc? Or leave the total oil amount the same, and add the infused oil back in after blending and separating?

I would like to make a soap this weekend and split it into three portions and leave one uncolored, one colored with activated charcoal, and one with infused paprika oil.

Just trying to figure out the correct way to account for this in soap calc.

Thanks in advance!!
