Perfect!

This is the best indigo I have tried. It makes a blue jean blue when added to the lye mixture. It makes a perfect gray when added to the soap batter at trace. Then it makes a soft baby blue when mixed with some olive oil and added to my batter at room temperature. So many different ways to get blues from this one product I love it!

strong smell

Though I am pleased with the color of my soap (I added the powder to the lye solution and let the soap go through gel phase) I'm very disappointed with the fact that this powder completely masks the bubble gum fragrance I added. Two days after cutting the soap, it didn't smell anything like the Bubblegum FO I used. When I opened the indigo powder jar and smelled it was exactly like the smell of my soap. There should be a warning on the label that this can happen. My son is so disappointed because he wanted to give some Bubblegum soap to his friends. Though I like how the color turned out, I don't think I will use this again since I don't know how it will affect the scent of my soap

Indigo Pwd

I used this and put in with my oils. I also gelled my soap. It is medium granite gray - interesting but definitely not blue. I would only use again if I didn't mind having a gray color in my soap. I think one should just be aware this is a finicky colorant.

Hi Janet! I'm sorry you had that trouble! We love the Natural Indigo Powder though it definitely does turn more gray than blue if added to your oils. For a darker, more apparent blue we suggest reconstituting the indigo powder in your lye solution. If you're looking for an even bright blue you may prefer the Ultramarine Blue Pigment which is more of a lapis blue.

Love the color

First time I used it, I loved working with this Indigo powder as a natural colorant. I mixed it with my lye water as instructed on the container. I used a palm free recipe and everything soaped perfectly. No color changes, no fading, everything stayed true. Would definitely buy again.

You must let your soap gel to get blue!

Initially when I used the indigo, I got a beautiful greenish teal color which I loved. It wasn't until I used it again and added to my hot processed soap AFTER the gel phase, that it turned more of a blue jean. Now that I know to add it after gel phase AND let it sit for a couple of weeks, I will definitely try it again. I mixed the indigo with my SF after the cook. If you want more of the greenish/teal color, add it before the cook. It helps to do a test batch.
