Natural Fall Colors in Fall Soap Recipes

Muted sunset colors are super easy to make naturally within soap. This makes the reds, oranges, and yellows of Fall soap recipes easy to achieve simply by adding the colors at trace.

You can get different shades or even brighter colors by adding color at different times (like adding annatto seeds to oils or spirulina to lye water), but for simplicity these 5 Fall Soap Recipes will just suggest to add the colors at trace.

Feel free to experiment with other methods suggested below. You can always use these recipes as bases to work off of. For example, use the same amounts of oil, lye, and water, but change the coloring and scents to suit your needs. Use what you have or change it up.

For example, if your recipe calls for olive oil, infuse olive oil. if it calls for avocado oil, then you can infuse that avocado oil. Your choice.
