Alkanet in All Natural Lavender Soap

All Natural Lavender Soap

For Nitya,at The soap Nut as promised:  Pics of "Lavender Creme" all natural soap made with fresh goats milk....colored with Alkanet Root Powder and Rose Clay...
This photo doesn't exactly capture the color, but it's a really nice dusty purple.  It seems that alkanet is very fickle, depending on the pH of your particular recipe.  It's not the vibrant purple that you can get with synthetic colors, but it works for me and my style.

This batch of all natural lavender soap will be ready Sept. 1, 2012

Pre-order for self or shop: becky@heirloomsoapworks.com

Happy Soaping!

I think it is a beautiful purple! I will be trying another lavender soap soon. Hopefully I will get the color I desire this time. :)

Yes, I have never thought to mix alkanet and clay - I usually just use one or the other. Stunning result and all natural!

It looks wonderful, I love natural colourants as they provide that organic earthy touch.
