Ylang Ylang-Lavender w/Bentonite Clay & Madder Root
I really need to make some of my Citrus Grove soap, but I think I'm going to wait for my carrot tissue oil to arrive, as I am very impressed with Jen at Jenora Soaps lovely yellow "Lemon Poppyseed" soap. If you haven't seen it, you really must check it out! I never realized what lovely colors could be obtained while still using only all natural ingredients. I may try to find a nice orange colorant to layer in that particular soap, as it is a lemon-orange-grapefruit mix. Also plan to try the cornstarch to see if it helps hold the citrus a bit more. Very exciting!
My head is spinning right now with all the ideas, but I love that! Thanks again to all you natural colorant soapers out there whose lovely work has inspired me to step out of my little "cream colored comfort zone." : )
