I used Alkanet Root Powder to color this soap and that can be a little tricky. If you use too much it turns a deep purple if you use too little it's a very pale lavender/gray. I used too little =0( So you can't really see the contrast between the Lavender and the White swirls as much as I'd hoped. I think it works though because it goes along with the whole "Breeze" motif. This soap makes me think of sitting on a grassy hill near a lavender field and the breeze is carrying the scent over. It's really cool because you can smell the lavender as well as hints of air and grass. I don't particularly care for lavender but I really like this one. The fragrance is soft and pretty.
