Yellow of Combodia Soap

I had almost forgotten about this challenge but then I discovered in the shop where I use to buy my lye an ingredient which drew my attention: yellow of Cambodia (Gutta gummi), a natural colorant. The color, named after the gamboge tree, which is known for its yellow resin, is a yellow pigment which comes from Cambodia, where in the 12th century painters used the color as a watercolor paint.Soap made of yellow of Cambodia
So here my Cambodian Soap made of: coconut oil, olive oil, palm oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, litsea cubeba essential oil, eucalyptus essential oil, yellow of Cambodia and nettle powder.

    How lovely, you were inspired in a second to use this wonderful colour for your Universal Challenge! I love it and the soap came out perfect! Along with the peaks! Even the ash contributes to its beauty!

    Some exotic colorant again! I am really impressed how you discovered all of them and recognized that could be used as soap ingredients. I also like green you achieved with nettle!

  7. Marika says:

    Both the top and the bottom layers are beautiful, but the green from the nettle powder is just wonderful.

    Gorgeous soap, Natalia! I love the pencil line. And the nettle powder looks so pretty and earthy.
