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.
Dried whole Calendula flowers, perfect for infusing oils. The petals are lovely sprinkled on top of soap or added to bath salts.

Just take the top off, fill the container with liquid oil of your choice, and set it aside for a few weeks. Strain the oil — Ta Da!!
