I would like to add dried flowers to my soap without the soap turning brown is there a safe way to do this?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Looks like your option is use only the stuff that tolerates the process.

Thank you so much for this link!!I have read so many soap making books and information on the net and I haven't found a lot of information that is listed on the link you posted. Thanks again!!

RE: Natural Preservative for M&P

there isn't a preservative per se that will do this. you have to use dried herbs and flowers and not all can be used. some people use vitamin e to help stop the oxidation, but this does not always work.
