All of the powders mix best when blended with an equal portion of carrier oil to make a thin paste, then add to a small amount of your batch & finally mix throughout the batch. We have learned this through trial and error and glad to share this technique with you so you are satisfied with your first encounter of using these natural colorants. Recommended for use in both cold processed and melt and pour bases. Your base and essential or fragrance oils will impact the end result color. Natural vegetable powders will fade and migrate after 3 weeks leaving speckles for unique finished soaps. Add at the end of your process to avoid cooking the vegetables.
