We recently debuted the Lavender Mist &  Koko Kwèm lotion & soap bar collection. The response has been so phenomenal that we are keeping the line available for an extended period of time. If you haven’t tried it yet, do your skin a favor and order a set.

In this post, I’ll cover the basic process used to make handmade soap bars using natural herbs as a colorant. I’ll be using the Koko Kwèm soap bar as an example. Koko Kwèm  is a light crisp blend of tea tree and lemon essential oil that is Über refreshing.

First, I infused some oil with annatto herbs for this beautiful reddish/yellowish/orangey color (I’m not the best with naming colors). I ran a few test batches to check the color stability and appearance.

It is a pretty straight forward process but time consuming. Here’s the run down.
I combine the lye water with the oils/fats…
Mix until “trace” begins (thickening of the mixture) …
Add the essential oils… (beautiful aromas filled the air)
Mix well… (it is beginning to take shape)

Here’s what you get… (it’s alive)

Once these soap bars are ready, I test the formulas for color stability. Stay tuned for the results.
