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

Mixed With Safflower Powder
I mixed this with safflower powder at 1/2 teaspoon per pound of oils. Used White Tea and Ginger FO and Tangerine EO. Batch separated and very oily. Recipe was one I have used before. Please what went wrong?? The FO combo was lovely....

Hi Sarah! I'm sorry you had difficulties with your soap recipe using this natural colorant. The Natural Indigo Powder used at that amount would not have caused separation. I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!

Love it!
I purchased this pigment on a whim, and after tweaking it enough to get my now signature mossy green color for my soaps. I can't do without it! The color is so natural and my soaps look fantastic.

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!

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.
