If you are interested in learning how to use herbs and other natural colors in soap, the Indie Business #HandmadeChat, How To Use Herbs and Natural Colors in Handmade Soap, was the place to be!

I’ve grabbed a sample qustion and reponses for you:

@INDIEbusiness:  

Q1 WHAT CAN I USE TO COLOR MY SOAPS NATURALLY?

@NatGoodsoaps:    

A1a First place to look is your kitchen; powered herbs, spices, parsley powder, annatto seeds

A1b Soap can be colored naturally with clay (Morrocan red clay, kaolin clay) and things like green tea or rooibos tea

A1c Soap can be colored with juices vegetables, like carrot and beet. Be creative (within reason …)

Wow! How much more natural can you get than that? My soap maker brain cells are thinking madly about experimenting.

Thank you to Melissa Rivera, of Naturally Good Soaps, and Essence & Aroma, for sharing your expertise as the #HandmadeChat co-host.  Melissa loves all things soap, all things natural.  Melissa also teaches soap, and is the Indie Business Director, New York City.

Full transcripts to the chat can be found here.  I am looking forward to the next #Handmadechat, Thursday, 7/5, 8p ET, when @soapcoach, La Shonda Tyree, will lead a discussion on Content Ideas for Your  Newsletter & Blog.

See you there?
