Natural Soap Colorants

Use approximately 1/2 teaspoon per pound of fats/oils. Results vary but most of the natural colorants have a slightly speckled look to them. You could infuse the colors into the oils and strain as well to minimize this look.
1. Tumeric powder - results in a speckled light orangish color.







2. Rosehip powder - results in a purplish light mauve color.










3. Alkanet powder- results in a speckled purplish gray color.



4. Annatto powder - results in a dark tangerine orange color.



5. Parsley powder - results in a speckled greenish color.
 






6. Paprika powder - results in a salmon color.
