This morning I experimented with a Bastille (mostly olive oil) Soap. I based it on this recipe from the magnanimous Soap Queen, but used goat milk in oil and infused my oils with calendula and chamomile. I left it unscented to be really gentle and superfatted it at 7%.
Since red mica turns peachy orange, I did a swirl on top with it.
Here is a before pic:
I had a lot of leftover red mica and it was difficult not to use it all up. But I stopped swirling when it was pretty.
