Adobe Brick La Bomb- "warmth, energy"
I absolutely adore these colorants. They don't stain the tub and much easier to use than mica. I just wished they had a true red color and darker colors. Most of these come out pretty pastel.
absolutely love this color, beautiful and rich!
Lovely coloring, especially when mixed with the daisy yellow to create a nice warm orange tone!
My only issue is, out of the three colorants I ordered, this one was the only one that wasn't the right consistency. It was super goopy and did not leave the dropper easily and while the other colors were pretty thick as well this one just kept wanting to stick to the container.
Not sure if it was something on my end (I was storing it with the others in a cabinet) or if it was just a dud.

Because the base of the La Bomb Colorants is glycerin they can get pretty thick and goopy. To remedy this you can put the colorant in the microwave for no more than 3 seconds to start with (you don't want the bottle to melt) and the color will thin out.
I love this color in my bath fizzies..I did mix some color into melt and pour and it made a beautiful red which is what I am looking for..So my questions is, is there any reason why I could not use this color in my cold process soap to get the great color..I love to match colors to the scent and am making red apple scent soap..I just don't want to do it without checking in order not to ruin a a batch of soap.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Carolyn! I'm so glad you love the beautiful red color our Adobe Brick La Bomb! We don't recommend using this type of colorant in cold process soap because they are made with glycerin and could cause glycerin rivers in your soap.
