  2. I wish there were a few more specifics. For example, the book mentions using carrots rom bolster yellow colorants but does not give any information about quantities and in what form (raw? Cooked? Juiced?)

    • The exact amount of carrot and method used for the carrot soap referenced in the book is included =) It’s on page 56 to be exact. I use a puree (much like carrot baby food) but you can also use juice. If you have more questions, please let me know!

      Happy Soaping,

  3. I absolutely love The Natural Soap Color Palette! Not only does it teach methods of experimenting with colors yourself, it offers some tried and true colorant combinations. It even had a chart letting you know which colorants are are best infused in water vs oil. The soap samples allow me to just pick the shade I want and follow the directions.
