This Turmeric Ombre Soap is all about simplicity. It has skin-loving ingredients like cocoa butter, turmeric shea butter, and sunflower oil. The ombre design is made by layering various shades of turmeric powder. For a pop of color, the soap is topped with cornflower petals on one half and safflower petals on the other.
The bars are unscented, which makes this recipe perfect for those with sensitive skin. Feel free to add a fragrance or essential oil if you’d like – find out how much to use with the Bramble Berry Fragrance Calculator.

To help the turmeric pop, we recommend forcing gel phase. Soaping a little bit warmer (120-130°F) and placing the soap on a heating pad should do the trick.
