Adding the mica to the soap

I wanted the “base” of the soap to have a light yellow color, so I added ½ tsp of a light yellow mica to the whole batch. You can see I'm just adding it in straight. It often works better to pre-mix the mica in a bit of olive oil. (That's what I did with the other two colors.)

Once the soap was at a very light trace, I added the essential oils and blended lightly.
