Natural Colorants from Mother Nature!

How do I dye my soaps? Naturally of course ;) 

I infusing oil with herbs and spices. First I place the herbs and spices in a tea bag and seal them.  Place the tea bag in a jar and fill with oil.  Then, simmer the jars in a warm bath for beautiful, natural colors from Mother Earth.

From top center: alkanet, paprika, turmeric, Indigo, Woad, spirulina, walnut, and activated charcoal (middle)
