Soapmakers' delight! Maya Blue from real plant based indigo
Tired of wasting precious natural indigo on failed attempts at blue soap? We have the solution! We complex our US grown natural indigo with a clay here in an ancient process (known as Maya Blue) that binds the indigo so it goes farther in soap coloring. Can also be used for printing and other textile and painting projects.
For soap we recommend anywhere from 1/2 tsp/lb of soap to 2 tsp/lb of soap depending on how dark you want it. This is for cold process soap. If you add to a melt-and-pour base you will actually get more of a purple, which is cool too!
Maya blue is not only an amazing ancient color, it is a fun blue for making pastels or watercolors from natural pigments. This maya bleu is made from our TN and KY grown natural indigo.
