Quick question about the Dandelion Leaf for green coloring…. A website stated 1/2 Tablespoon for 1lb of oils.
How much for one cavity mold of 1/2 cup base of soap?
Additionally When adding oils for fragrance how much should be used for one single cavity mold??? Can you mix oilds and herb together as well?
We’ve never used Dandelion Leaf for green coloring before, but there are a couple of things you can do. If your Dandelion Leaf is in powder form, you can add it to your soap until you reach the color you desire. If it isn’t in powder form, you can infuse it into one of your oils to achieve that gorgeous green you are looking for. Here is a great blog post that shows you how to infuse your herbs into your oils: http://www.soapqueen.com/bath-and-body-tutorials/lotion/making-skin-soothing-oil-infusion-2/
1/2 cup of soap is about 4 ounces, so that is usually just 1 to 2 cavities. With a single cavity that is 4 ounces, you should use about .2 oz of fragrance oil. And you can mix your oils and herbs together!
I hope this helps! -Becky with Bramble Berry
