Blueberry Pancake Soap

I got some lovely peacock mica in the sample pigment package I got, and I thought it would go nicely with the Blueberry Pancake Fragrance Oil I have.  I added in some French White clay to make the soap more luxurious.

As you can see, micas don’t work super well in cold process soaps, like they do in melt and pour clear soap base.  Mica has shimmers in it that work best in the transparent bases, but cold process soap is opaque and naturally ivory colored.  Oxides actually work better for coloring cold process soaps.  The sample package I got had bits of both micas and oxides so I thought I’d play.

As you can see, the color lightened up considerably and has a slight blue-green tint to it, as a result of the natural ivory color.

Still, it’s actually pretty close to what I was expecting, and I rather like the color.  Next time I use this color though, I think I’ll go with a more watery type of scent, like rain or ocean or something like that, and I plan on getting some more colors also, including some blues that might work better with Blueberry Pancake fragrance.

  1. I guess I would be torn between eating it and bathing with it 😀 😀 Already when I use the fruity scents I am like “What if I taste this. A little for sure should not do me much harm” 😛 And then thankfully my senses take hold of me and I just leave them at lathering 😀 But blueberry pancake!!!! I am not so sure if I can resist that ❤

    1. Lol, me too! Like the cherry soap I made, I wanted to take a bite. 😊 Would you believe one of the ways you can test homemade soap to see if the lye has saponified, is to touch the tip of your tongue to it? If it zaps you, it’s not ready to use. It’s called The Zap Test. Seriously. 😊
