calendula-infused olive oil

My calendula- infused olive oil is ready for use.  It's been infusing for five weeks now...my plan was to infuse for two weeks and make a batch of soap, but it never happened.  I have my recipe ready but the biggest problem I'm having is what to use for fragrance.  Ever have this happen?  I just cannot  make up my mind!  It'll be another blend, I know that for sure...it's just determining what I want to use for a blend.  So for the time being, it sits......

  1. The infused oil should make a lovely soap! Calendula is so pretty - it looks gorgeous just sitting there in the jug! Can't wait to see what you come up with!

    1. I think I'm getting closer...spent some time today testing blends and narrowed it down-will see if I still like them tomorrow! :)

  2. It looks so pretty, I can't wait to see what you do with it! Do you think it will add any natural color to the soap?

    1. I'm not really sure if it will add much natural color. I still need to decide what I want to use for colorants, and will probably leave a portion uncolored to see how much color it gives. That's my plan so far anyway! :)

  4. I just made a soap with infused chamomile tea, it worked great! I can't wait to see what these are going to turn into. This yellow is beautiful!
