Eucalyptus Blossom, take 2

There's just something about this warm, herbally fragrance that needs a natural coloring.  No loud, bright swirls and glitter with this one. 



In my last batch, I used all parsley.  This time I used a dusting of black cocoa powder to separate the top layer of dried parsley from the bottom layer that contains a smidge of titanium dioxide.  I didn't use a mortar and pestle to finely grind the parsley this time; I just sprinkled it in before incorporating it in with a stick blender.




Mmmm.  Happiness in a bar.

  6. The parsley makes your soap so beautiful! Do you know if the green color will fade?

  7. Pencil line--that's a good way to describe it, Jenny!

    Yes, Kirppu, the parsley color will fade to more of an olive shade of green, but that works fine for me in this batch.
