Bosnia and Herzegovina

In 2009 we went to Croatia and by accident we stopped in Neum, a sea-side resort in Bosnia Herzegovina. We loved it so much that we stayed more than a week instead of the initially planned 2 days. We went back last year to discover more of this beautiful country.Flag  Soap

Back to this soap and his colors: I am really proud to announce that this blue comes from Methyl blue which I have been looking for with so much curiosity! I have read that the color doesn’t hold in time, but I am really pleased to test this natural colorant which is also considered to be a disinfectant. For the yellow part, I used bee pollen which we all know that it’s a super food. Thank you all for your answers, I knew it would be piece of cake for Maja..or Gordana.. or Ksenija :).

P.S. Soap made for the challenge ‘Les Pays du Monde’ organized by Raphael .
Thanks Raphael !

    I really admire your persistant pursuit for natural coloranrs. I thought they were indigo and turmeric powders. Now,you made me curious about these ones. And what were the colorant you had used in your ‘Macedonia’ soap?
    Excellent dear!
