Yellowdock Root Powder

$4.60$35.25

Yellowdock root is great for chronic skin conditions such as psoriasis, acne, wounds and other skin complaints. The most amazing this is that it’s a natural red colourant for soap. As soon as you add it to the lye water, it turns from yellow to red. I made one batch with about 1/4 teaspoon per pound and my soap was pale pink, I added a teaspoon per pound to a second batch and got a nice red colour. When I rebatched 3/4 pound of the pink soap and added two more teaspoons of the yellowdock, the soap came out a lovely red wine colour … that with some Wine & Flowers fragrance and it’s a beautiful soap. We have heard from some soapmakers that they don’t always get a red colour. I’m guessing that it’s due to growing conditions of each batch. So we should note that “your mileage may vary”.
