and the winner is >>>>>>>>>>>

So Jaimie-Lyn is the winner... they use extracts from a red bug called the "cochineal", a very little bug that drinks the juice of a cactus... it takes 70,000 of these little bugs to make one pound of dye..... I liked Babi's response of "beet root" it is a much nicer way to dye something red... Clay is another way to dye cosmetics...

Jaimie-lyn you win a bath bombs and a $5 jewelry gift certificate :)

Happy Showering folks.

Pink swirled soap.. the new frontier !

So I have finally learned how to properly swirl clay and other natural colours into the soap for a very cool look !!! it only took me till midnight last night to figure it out. Geesh.... but it looks cool... A new soap for you all. Bergamot facial soap with grapefruit, jasmine, pink french clay, shea butter, cocoa butter and calendula petals... It smells dreamy and looks pretty too! It has to cure for 5-6 weeks.. but when its done you are gonna love it. Next on the agenda is swirled lime twist soap. I will achieve a green colour using alfalfa and spinach powder.. I plan to stick to my rule of no synthetic dye or fragrance. The only execption I will make is for Mica.. but then again who wouldn't make an exeption for sparkly glitter ;)

Trivia Question : What is red synthetic dye/colour made from ????? The only hint I will give you is that you might think twice about red candy, red jello and red cosmetics when you find out!

The first person to post the correct answer will win 1 free bath bomb and a $5 jewelry voucher!

Happy Showering Folks.
