Annatto Seed Colorant, Natural - Infuse these seeds in your liquid oil (Olive is a good one) to get a nice orange tint to color your soap with. Usage rate is 1 tsp. of seeds in 16 oz. of oil to get a nice pale yellow. To get a darker orange color, use 4 tsp. in 32 oz. After infusing for a full week, use this oil as your base oil in your soap recipe to achieve the color desired. Remember, as with any color, if you use too much color, you will get colored lather. If you want to do a hot infusion, heat your oils up and infuse the annatto seeds for approximately 2 hours on low to medium heat. Strain the annatto seeds before using soap.

Extremely pleased with the Annatto Seed!
I was a little skeptical because of the price but let me tell you what: I just made a BEAUTIFUL natural colorant for use in my soaps with this seed and almond oil. It started changing the oil within hours but it was more yellow for days - over the weeks it changed from yellow to dark yellow then moved to a beautiful orange after about an 8 week infusion time. GORGEOUS! Now I just can't wait to use it! I'll add to my review after I do but for now I'm extremely pleased! Thank you Bramble for giving us such high-quality ingredients at prices that won't cramp our budget!!!
