Amy Warden’s Soap Challenge for this month was the Multi-Colored Gradient Soap. I have done it before twice and also thanks to Amy’s challenge. Lovely technique, very easy to make as long as you choose a slowly moving trace essential oil.
Last year my gradient soaps contained only 2 colors, therefore I wanted something more colored this year. This is a challenge in itself when using natural colorants.
The used colorants, from bottom to top, are:
alkanet root + xinc oxide
blue methyl + spirulina maxima
spirulina+ zinc oxide
rubia cordifolia (Manjishta) root powder
I was most impressed by the color obtained combining blue methyl and spirulina. Of course, I dreamt of a turquois which I have been looking for so long in natural colorants, but when I cut the soap, this color was barely visible. Only after several days it changed into this turquois. A lovely descovery… !

!!!!! I´m speechless! Super beautiful colors! All of them 🙂
Oh, Marika, thanks, you are always so sweet!
I usually make( at least) 2 soaps for these challenges, but this time I didn’t have enough time as my children school started 🙂
You did not have to make more than this one, it is so amazing. My husband said right away that it looks like a rainbow 🙂
I love the colors… so sweet….
I love your colors, that turquoise turned out super awesome!! Great job =)
Love your design and your use of naturals! I researched blue methyl, but can’t see anything that says it’s natural…. But that’s in the states! I am always looking for natural blues too… If you have more information on it, I would love to know! Gorgeous job!
Nicole, as far as I know, blue methyl is used as an antiseptic for external use, but you made me curious, so I will search more info about it.
Love the soft natural colors. Very pleasing combination. It’s lovely!
Prachtig hoe mooi die natuurlijke kleuren! een kunstwerkje weer :0) gr

Like all the other, I must say that those colours are so beautiful! And yes, I also see rainbow in your soap but my first impression was like a Finnish landscape; lake, forest and that awsome sunset on late summer night. 🙂
