Magic beans. Trade this beautiful mica for a beanstalk climb to a magical land, but make sure you save some for yourself. What may appear brown at first glance is actually a cavalcade of colors.
This mica is magic... Rays of blue and green and red shimmer in the sunlight and radiate from this full-bodied and lustrous shade. Quite spectacular. As Jack himself would agree, magic beans... a wise choice indeed!

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.
A little goes a long way! These micas are vivid and make the soap look like satin. I’ve used them in MP. Can’t wait to start my cold process with these!
Seriously better than I even expected! Color is amazing and the name says it all “magical”!
Caramelly brown and the shimmer shift of color os gorgeous. Try it you will love it
Love this color on my bathbombs.
I ordered this color of mica because of the great weekly sale. And let me tell you I am so glad that I did. I used it in a cp cupcake to get a light caramel tone. It was perfect. I decided to use it as a oil swirl on the top of my orange patchouli low top and it was just what this soap loaf needed the greens added so much to the top I will continue to use it for this staple soap.
