Not great for bath bombs - smelly!

This is a gorgeous color, and a staple in my cold process. I added it to a batch of bath bombs and wow! The smell is horrific! Like, Santa Monica pier at low tide bad. I made six more test batches with different scents or no scent at all before submitting this review. It's the colorant that's making the bombs stink. Stick to cold process with this one!

can it be used in bath fizzy?

I purched this color and I tried to use it with bath fizzy with out premixing it with liquids, and it stained the tub. Can it be used in bath fizzles if premixed in liqueds without staining the tub?

Beautiful but can stain

I used this in a CP soap using a great recipe from one of Anne-Marie's books. The soap is delightful but using the 1 tsp to 1 TBS carrier oil, the soap came out with a deep blue color and unfortunately this transfers to a wash cloth. It does not stain skin (no blue men here) and works fine with a shower poof. I think I need to use less the next time I make this recipe. All the more reason to do test batches right?

Stunning

I used this colorant in my first batch of CP and it is STUNNING!! I have received several compliments on how much the blue pops. I will definitely reorder.

Not as vibrant as the photo shown

I ordered the pigment sampler which contained this in it. I followed recommended usage rate exactly as it is stated in the description. I assumed that the photo of how it turns out in CP soap would be the same usage rate that is recommended. Apparently my assumption was incorrect because it looks nothing like the photo. In my CP, with Brambleberry's recommended usage, my soaps (after gel) were a light sky blue (not even close to the deep, vibrant blue shown in the photo). It definitely isn't because of my recipe, as it is the recipe I always use, and have used other companies oxides at the same/similar rates resulting in beautifully vibrant colors. This was quite disappointing.

Hi Mandolyn! I'm sorry this colorant wasn't your favorite. We've found it creates a bright blue, as seen in this Fourth of July Fireworks Cold Process Soap. To get the color in the photos, we mixed 1 tsp. of the color in 1 Tbsp. sweet almond oil. Then, we added about 1 ½ tsp. of the dispersed color per pound of soap. I'll be emailing you personally to help troubleshoot!
