    In an effort to not use my 2 pounds of Patch that although when I purchased it was normal price is now worth a fortune :) I mixed my Dragons Blood into my mixture for my Eucalyptus soap and also into my Pink Grapefruit, to seat the essential oils. If anything it is better! I have tucked a few bars aside to see if the fragrance fades. Vicki

    Now does that make the soap darker than the patch would normally?

    So far no, but a pippette filled for 4 ounces of EO I don't think is enough to turn it. It's not old enough, although with Dragons Blood it turns really quickly. Until I just wrote that it didn't dawn on me that I probably should have used more since Dragons Blood certainly doesn't have much patch in it either.... vicki

    Yes, pink grapefruit and dragon's blood (Pink Dragon) is one of my very best sellers!

    Well, a person has to give back, you know. I learn a lot so I try to share...but there are some things that I won't. Since you are already "onto" the DB grapefruit thing, why not?

    I will say this though, while Pink Dragon is one of my best sellers, true patch fans say, "not enough patch" and stick to my Moab blend - sorry, THAT one I won't share! :biggrin

    BTW, even with only one part DB the soap is very dark. Every batch I try a new thing to get a pink swirl in there - but the DB just seeps into the pink anyway! Here is a really bad picture (pre light box) of it and the swirl is terrible! I actually got a better swirl on my most current batch that I don't have a good picture of yet. I take out some soap unfragranced to get the pink, but once again- the brown creeps in and it never stays the way I want it!

    Hey Bethany,

    The bars of Pink Dragon that I've seen (even had one at my sink) are lovely. Very pretty and very unique looking. :)

    I was just going to tell you Bethany to talk to Sara, she helped me get a really nice "blood" through and on top of my Dragons Blood without having to paint it after cutting! AT first I was like no way,,, but the neon fadded after curing and it's really cool. I think Sara's middle name is Mica.

    I only wanted to use the dragons blood to seat as a bottom note my citrus EO's so know way did I use as much as you do!

    Tammi, the dragons blood you like so much is very much patchoulli....you can smell my stash the next time you are over, it's devine so old it's rich like molassas. Vicki

    Ya let me smell ya stash I'll never leave! :rofl :rofl :rofl :rofl
