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.
INCI: Baphicacanthus cusia (Nees) Bremek Powder

Hi Gina! It sounds like you are experiencing some discoloration from your essential oils.
Lemongrass Essential Oil discolors to a yellow color, and when combined with blue your soap would be green! In order to achieve a true blue hue, I would recommend using a fragrance or essential oil that does not discolor. You can find a list of white fragrances here.
