Yellow Cold Process Soap Test


As many of you know, I adore lemons. A great pick me up fruit if ever I have seen one. I would love to have a bright yellow colored soap scented with lemon but the yellow oxide doesn’t cut it. It isn’t bright like I want it to be. I must say I love the results of the Yellow Oil Soluble Lip Balm Color in soap. What do you think? Come with me to the kitchen to achieve this wonderful and bright color.
