Natural Indigo Powder:
 This stunning blue powder is a natural colorant that's extracted from the leaves and stems of the indigo containing plants. Traditionally used in China as a medical remedy more common applications make use of it as a natural dye. Add this colorant to any of your favorite soap projects for a blue just like that of blue jeans. We recommend a usage rate of 1/2 teaspoon indigo per pound of soap. For a darker blue we suggest reconstituting the indigo powder in your lye solution.  

Note: Using a palm free cold process recipe will help to achieve a more consistent coloring of the soap.   

Botanical Name: Baphicacanthus Cusia (Nees) Bremek Powder

Love this as a natural blue
I'm starting to experiment more with natural colorants, and this powder made an excellent blueberry color for my blueberry soap! In truth, I didn't measure and didn't mix with oil or lye solution. In a hot process batch, I just sprinkled a bunch on as it was cooking and kept mixing it in as it cooked, and I got a wonderful gray/purple/blue color that looks just like blueberry yogurt!

Gray/Blue
I am updating my review after cutting my CP soap. Although my soap came out more gray than I thought it would, its not bad. I put the indigo in my lye water. Next time I will put it in the oils first.

LOVE the blue
I really like to use natural colorants and blue is one that is hard to get. This produces a beautiful blue that can be varied a lot by how much you add to your soap. A little goes a long way.

Indigo powder
This performed quite well. I was hesitant to use too much so I didn't use enough to get a really dark blue, but the gray/blue color I did get was beautiful. I used this in CP soap and used sweet almond oil as a carrier. I will definitely purchase this again.

Beautiful blue grey!
I love this color! I added it during trace and end result is a faded blue grey! Exactly what I wanted! This is an amazing natural colorant! I think it will be excellent for swirls!
