They look great! I think it's great you are using natural colorants.

Ian,

I actually used alfalfa powder which I mixed into a portion of the oils....then layered it in while pouring the soap into the mold.

That paper is awesome! Guess I will have to buy some now...and I love paper raffia ribbon!

Thanks!
