Making "Purple Rain" Handmade Soap

I've said it before and I'll continue saying it: I L♥VE purple.  Like, really love it and will happily take advantage of any opportunity to use it in soap. 
A unique blend of Sweet Orange and Lemon with a fresh and calming heart of Lavender on a woodsy base with Orange Blossoms
It still amazing how far supplies for the Soapmaking community has come.  When I first started soaping, the use of stick blenders was still catching on!  Just over a year ago, I was posting about my struggles to achieve a true, strong, vibrant purple in cold process soap.
Here's my first attempt at this soap from 2013:
As you can see, my purple pigment morphed in to a pink. 
I'm so happy to have found such wonderful cold process stable micas.
Here's the making video :0)


  1. A very beautiful soap!

  2. Wonderfull colours! I´m lovin it:)

  3. What a pretty combination of colors. Your soaps look great =)

  4. I agree with Anne Paris, your colours are perfectly complementing each other. I love purple too, but so far, I have not found the purple I like! Your is a success really:

    1. Nurture Soap Supplies has a great purple mica. I think it's called Vibrant Purple. Most of my mica's come from there.

  5. Was für grandiose Seifen und ein wunderschöner Blog! LG aus Deutschland! Angie
