Hello. This is a facinating idea…im trying as an amatuer soap maker in israel to make a jewish blue and white soap. I’m trying to find natural ingredients for the blue. If i were to try this can you give me a tip on where to add the corn and ash? Into the lye ,oils,or after the two are mixed?
All the best
