Reply from Bramble BerryHi Yizhak! In melt and pour soap, you can add about ½ tsp. per pound of soap. If you want it a little darker, you can add a little more. As for cold process soap, add 1 tsp. of the charcoal to 1 Tbsp. of a light carrier oil, like sunflower or sweet almond oil. After it is thoroughly mixed, you can add about ½ tsp. of the dispersed colorant until you get your desired color. This Talk It Out Tuesday: Colorants blog post has a lot of information about coloring your soap and may be helpful to you. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this!
