I like to infuse natural botanicals like lavender and Chamomile. Smells wonderful plus it's good for your skin. I got into this because store bought soap irritates my skin. I and one of my grandbabies have eczema, my brother has psoriasis and my Mom had skin problems from chemo. i haven't used store bought soap in years. Honey boosts lather and its very good for your skin. i add it at trace. I love using natural botanicals preferably organic for the beneficial properties and as colorants. I tend to avoid artificial colorants because they're too harsh on my skin. I have used mica's in lip balm. they're beautiful. here's a link to the place where I get my natural colorants http://www.soap-making-resource.com/natural-soap-colorants.html
Thanks! I'm going to have to try this. i currently make goats milk soap and cucumber soap by substituting instead of water. As for the cucumber, peel it and put the pulp in a blender. After that's used, blend the peels to use as color. I've also seen red wine used but i haven't tried that one. I keep white vinegar handy. if I get any lye water in me pour a little vinegar on it. it'll neutralize it. It always irks me when I see posts, etc. saying things like, "Make soap without lye!" No such thing... all they're doing is rebatching base which was made with lye. Without lye there is no soap.
