Sample bags contain one generous teaspoon (approx. 3-4 g).
This dreamy orange is softly 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, the 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 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.
This mica reminds me of those creamsicles we used to eat as kids. Those creamy/orangey popsicle treats ! It's really a nice summery color to use . I love it.
