I’ve been experimenting here and there with natural colorants, clays and infusing oils. I’m interested to see what range of colors I can get. I was making a batch of Lavender and was using rose clay (which I love) and decided that I’d also try the green tea powder I had. I’d been putting it off. I was afraid I’d get a puke-y green (which is what I started with).
I hydrated the clay a bit before mixing it and oh my the color was awful…but I went forward…hoping it’d mellow out a bit. Well after cutting the soap this morning I was pleasantly surprised to see it had turned a muted brown.
Left to go teach and came back four hours later to this awesome deep brown!
