Black Oxide: "Midnight", black is a great color to have in any collection -- creates an impressive and classic contrast against white.

For cold process, add 1 teaspoon of oxide to 1 tablespoon of a carrier oil like Sweet Almond or Olive Oil and mix well using a mini mixer. To create the color in the sample of cold process soap above, we used 1/4th teaspoon of colorant (about 0.15 oz before dispersing) in 1 pound of soap.
