which method are you using? (e.g. melt and pour)........astleysoapco.co.uk

The only flower petals you can guarantee will keep their colour, whether MP, CP or HP are calendula (possibly safflower, I've not tried those).
Most will go brown and some of the blue ones will look pretty for a day or two then fade away.
Back home on my desktop I have a number of pics of botanicals and how they behave in MP - I'll put them up somewhere suitable next week when I get home.
