Jean Baitallilon accurately quoted that "Really we create nothing.We merely plagiarize nature." It feels so comfortable to be a copy cater & try to replicate nature's colors,especially now in spring when all is so fresh, vibrant & alive . We love to color our soaps green,and we tried to find the perfect lasting green. We have added spirulina,green clay,wheat grass,ground parsley,chlorella powder,olive leaf powder& moringa powder. It is exciting to watch the shades of green when the batch is first poured & then the color at curing 4-6 weeks later. Sometimes we think we have outsmarted nature & mastered the'trick 'for keeping the color stable.....but like all green in nature it slowly fades & the color becomes yellow. Seeing all the green outside fired us to try once again to captivate it our soap. We scanned the soap making books & googled how to keep the green green. "The Soap Queen" explained the technique in an informative tutorial, on putting soaps through the gel phase.

We poured at higher temperatures & wrapped the batch in a blanket as directed for this process. Tah dah! What a stunning green, however we will enjoy it for now, as we know in nature & life that "all things shall pass."
