Turmeric Soap

turmeric
Every one making soaps has at least once tried this powder in soap. This magical spice seems to be a treasure for our health.Turmeric zeep

Curious to see the variety of colours one can obtain using it,  I made 2 different layers containing different quantities of  turmeric. It’s a real pity that the nice rose colour, beautiful as it was,  started to fade away as soon as the chemical reaction between lye and turmeric started .  I am curious if this rose colour resists when making MP soap…

  1. Natalia, imi plac foarte mult straturile pe care le-ai obtinut si modul de taiere. Iar articolul despre turmeric e foarte interesant, l-am citit si m-a convins sa il includ in alimentatie🙂 Spor si pupici!

  2. Beautiful soap Natalia! I love using turmeric in soap. The colors that can be achieved, are so many. It also like the fragrance of turmeric.

  3. Beautiful, Natalia! Turmeric produces such a lovely orange color. I haven’t played with natural colorants much, but I should try turmeric someday. I have a bunch in my pantry – I love Indian cuisine and use turmeric fairly often when cooking. Your soap is very pretty!
