Alkanet Root, Powder - Use this in your soap to create a purple color. It does turn a bit gray at first but will turn into a murky purple color in CP soap. You can infuse this color (and then strain it out) or just put the powder straight into the soap and stick blend it into your soap. Usage Rate: 1 Tbsp per 4 oz. of oil to infuse. 2 Tbsp. (filtered) infusion provides a nice purple to approximately 3 pounds of soap.
Ingredients:Botanical Name: Alkanna Tinctoria RootCommon Name: Alkanet Root
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Kinda! I'm sorry you were disappointed with the results of this powder in your soap. Alkanet Root Powder, being a natural product, can do some strange things. You've only mentioned the soap at trace being green, I'm wondering if your finished soap was green as well. This colorant does change color from the infusion, to when it's first added to your soap, then to its final color in the soap. Gel phase is Alkanet Root Powder's friend! Find out more about gel phase in our Jazzed About Gel Phase blog post. If your final soap is that green color you may not have used enough of the powder. I would recommend using more as well as doing a hot infusion versus a cold infusion. Find out more about how to do a hot infusion in our How to Infuse Oils with a Crock-Pot blog post.
