Sample bags contain one generous teaspoon (approx. 3-4 g).
This dreamy orange is brilliantly hued, with tiny metallic flecks that catch the light and draw you in, as if you have just spotted the first tangerine of the season, that bright pop of color peeking out through the full green leaves of the tree.
But there's something different about this orange. It's subtle and laid back, despite it's bright color and lustrous sheen. We know that orange has a reputation for occasionally becoming obnoxious and overbearing. Not the case here. This one's extremely well-behaved.

Bath Bomb Notes
To use in bath bombs or other water applications, you must use polysorbate 80 (emulsifier) at a rate of 1-2% of your total batch weight. This should disperse the color evenly and eliminate mica from floating on the water's surface or leaving a ring of mica around the bathtub.
I love the color, I’m planning on using for some soaps for the fall
I wouldn't call it bright, but a lovely, true tangerine. Easy to control the brightness with a little more; I'd go a bit strong to start if you're looking for orange…. Love it!
I love this orange. I paired it with tangerine EO and it's perfect... It's officially my favorite orange... One picture with flash and one without... Thanks for the awesome micas...
We used Tangerine Dream to create the "Peach" color in some wedding soaps scented with peach fragrance oil. As you can see in the photo, it was just the ticket. The red is Voodoo, of course.
