Alkanet Root Powder is commonly used for its ability to provide a natural, dark red to purple tint. The powdered roots are used to infuse oil with its red, burgundy color (use about 2T powder per cup of oil). The infused Alkanet Root Oil can then be used in soap or other formulations (about 1T colored oil per pound soap). The powder can also be used directly in soaps and other formulations.

Comments: It got to me in a timely manner. It is what it said it would be. However there is part of the root that doesn't dissolved fully into water. The color is more a reddish purple than the typical purple also.

Comments: It was darker than I expected in my recipe. I will only use 1/2 the amount next time.

Customer Testimonial

"I just came home this morning from spending a week in Iceland. While there, I enjoyed time in their natural hot springs and experienced first hand the healing properties of their salt-water geothermal pools. I immediately went to to see what salts you have to choose from. I knew that you'd have Dead Sea salts and hoped that if I bought them I'd get similar results. What I found astounded me (yet, it's FNWL, so I really shouldn't be surprised that you had it). You have Iceland's wonderful salts! As if I needed another reason to love you! Keep up the UNBELIEVABLY WONDERFUL work!"
