Moringa Infusion with Charcoal Swirl

I have been making Moringa Tea Tree soap regularly but I usually make it a plain solid green from infusing powdered moringa in oil. A lady who always orders it requested for something with design. Wanting to keep it all-natural, I chose charcoal for the contrasting color of the swirls. Β I must say I really like the new look and I hope it pleases her, too. πŸ™‚

I had 4 batches of moringa powder steeping in olive oil since November but I needed 5. Β I thus ended up making one batch with a week-old infusion. Β I was a bit worried that it would come out a lighter green, but at the same time I was curious if there would be any difference. Β You know what, the lone batch made with the one-week infusion was just as green as the ones with the 2-month infusion! I could not detect any difference at all!

    Thank you, Monica! I am happy to hear it looks effortless. Just like a ballerina, we all aim for that. πŸ™‚ My creaky back hurts though from all the bending to take photos. LOL! πŸ˜€

    I love those two natural colours together! And your swirl is as always beautiful. This reminds me I have a green tea infusion sitting on my shelves… And the pictures are beautiful too. You are so inspiring Sylvia!

      Thank you, Madame Propre! Are you using powdered green tea? I have only used tea leaves steeped in water, but I am curious about green tea powder. Looking forward to your post on it! πŸ™‚

    Love the charcoal swirls on the green background. I have to admit, I have never heard of Moringa before seeing it on your blog and then while I was traveling Southeast Asia, I saw it being served everywhere. I love the natural green look- does the soap fade over time?

    How did you like eating malunggay/kamunggay as what moringa is called here? πŸ™‚
    The green fades over time, but kept in the dark, the color stays longer.
