INCI Name: Bixa orella

Used extensively in food preparation for it light taste and wonderful yellow colour. This herb is high in beta carotene and vitamin A, which gives it such a brilliant orange colour. We use it to make our soaps a lovely shade of yellow or orange depending on the quantity used. We use 1 tsp of finely grou nd seed or 2 tablespoons of infusion one kilo (2.2lbs) soap. To make an infusion use 2 tablespoons of finely ground seed and add to 1/4 cup of oil (Canola or Sunflower works fine) Heat oil slightly and allow to set for a few days, stirring occasionally. Strain and use liquid as an oil infusion for colour. For Bath Bubblers we use 1/2 tsp per 2 3/4 batch For Bath salts we use 1/2 tsp per 2 cups
