Details

Our new indigo powder is in fact blue! This is the same raw botanical material, but has been processed ready for use in cold process soap, melt and pour soap and textile and paper crafting. Indigofera tinctoria is the species which yields the highest level of dye, which is traditionally used in the textile industry.

See our test results in our Cold Processed Soap Log here

As an approximate guide, infuse 1 - 2 tablespoons into 100ml of Olive Oil. Or Infuse in lye water - again, please see the link above. You can also infuse into water using one of our Heat Sealable Tea bags or direct into the water (don't overload the bags - 1 tablespoon per large teabag). We have found a single infusion was adequate for the colour as shown. To see other methods to infuse indigo powder see our How to Infuse Herbs Tutorial Here

It also can be stirred directly into your traced soap for a speckly blue colour.
