Alkanet Root

$15.00

Alkanet Root

$15.00

A natural purple colorant for soap! To get the best results from this product, we recommend Ruth Esteves' excellent book on natural colorants, available through The Nova Studio's website, Coloring Soap Naturally. To purchase her book, Use This Link.

This Alkanet Root is cut and sifted, so can only be used in oil infusions. 4 Ounces in a resealable bag.

Makes a lovely dusky purple color after cure. But be aware, it can turn a startling royal blue color in the raw soap batter. If you want a purple swirl in your soap, you will have to divide your soap formula in half and make a colored batch and an uncolored batch, and then combine them in the mold.

Did you know that alkanet was the original pH indicator in litmus strips?? Yes, it was. Which explains why it can shift color while the soap is fresh.

Paprika Powder

$12.00

Paprika Powder

$12.00

Brings a pale peach color to soap when using sparingly (added at trace) all the way to a dark orange when added to the lye solution in a heavy ratio. We recommend starting with 1/4 teaspoon per pound of oils in your soap recipe to start, all the way up to 1 teaspoon per pound of oils. When added at trace, paprika can be a bit scratchy, but in a mechanic's soap this can work to your advantage. Try infusing one or more of your oils with paprika — nice and smooth!
