Some months ago I discovered a French forum where every 3-4 months we organize a challenge around a special soap technique. It’s a very nice place where we discuss about everything, not only soap. Of course, this is a good way to learn some new techniques, but what is more important: through this forum I met some very nice and talented people. I want to thank Jazz and Baloochou for letting me in and for all the participants for everything I learnt though them.
Soap made of coconut oil, castor oil, sesame oil, olive oil, cacao and shea butter, geranium essential oil, clary sage essential oil, alkanet.

bienvenue sur couleur savon, tu m’y verras aussi…bisous
I have never achieved a beautiful blue like that from alkanet… I get a nice blue from indigo when i don’t use olive oil (in one of my salt soaps), but with alkanet I get grey and purple (when I don’t use olive oil). Any tricks to getting this blue? xo Jen
Thanks Jennifer. I use to let my alkanet infuse for months ( olive oil for this soap), and I put some more at trace (reduced from the totally liquid oils). Maybe it’s also the mold( this time I used a Pringles one). Hope it helps!
Natalia, superbes savons et très beau marbrage ! Bravo !
Merci Colchique 😉
foarte interesant sapunul tau! cum ai obtinut aceasta textura?
L am turnat cu o lingura mica, Liza, am alternat culorile 🙂
da, ma gandeam eu la spoon technique. felicitari pt rabdare!
I’ve never used alkanet before, but it sure makes a gorgeous blue…and I really the pattern/technique you achieved on a round soap! 🙂
Thanks Kalla! You should give alkanet a try!
You are the Best and it’s my last word ! 🙂
Multumesc draga Iulia!
Ai obtinut un albastru foarte frumos cu alkanet si-mi plac tare mult sapunurile rotunde.
Si eu ador forma rotunda. Iti multumesc Geta, esti o draguta!
Really original!! I am wandering how you managed it?
Thanks Gordana! The technique is called spoon technique: you add the colors softly spoon by spoon, alternating between the 2 colors, undtil the mold if filled!
Hope it helps 🙂
What beautiful purple and blue colors you got from the alkanet, love it Nat!
What an interesting technique! Did you use the Pringles can normally? I mean that you filled the soap from the top?
Yes, Marika! Not so easy, but it’s worth the effort 🙂
Wonderful disks,Nat! I would never guess it was alkanet in this soap,looks more like indigo. However,the soap is beautiful!
Yes, Maja, I was also surprised by this blue.
Thank you, my dear Maja!
Such a pretty oven
Beautiful soap Natalia! Very stunning 🙂
Buna! Sapunul arata grozav ! De unde se poate obtine pudra de alkanet? Am tot cautat si nu exista. 😦 Multumesc!
