Seems like my first review was not posted even though Bulk Apothecary say they do not monitor the reviews.
Do not use this in bath bombs as it will react to the citric acid and let off a bad smell.
If you want to use this in soap and want to avoid the speck aftermath, I figured to mix this with hot water and then add to soap works best. No specks left in the soap as the pigment powder dissolves completely in the water. I can't figure out why no one has come up with this method and I used my initiative and it worked.

The product is nice and works really well for my lavender bath bombs. I just bought some other colors I like it that much.

I used this color to make bath bombs, it worked well and made them a beautiful color.

This is the first time I used this and am pleased with the results. As others have said a little does go a long way. Looking forward to ordering again.

I bought cobalt blue and this lavender to make bath bombs not knowing about ultramarine colors. I won't make that stinky mistake again! Unless you are pranking someone with rotten egg smell, do not use this color for bath fizzies

I use this oxide in my lavender goat milk soap to create a beautiful warm purple color. I've used other lavender oxides in the past, and this one requires far less to create a rich color, and it mixes more smoothly, dissolving almost instantly so that I don't have to worry about mixing in lumps while I trace. I also find that it adds a nice smooth texture to the soap, like a bentonite or kaolin clay might. I find this makes a nice formulation for shaving, and I get lots of great feedback about the soap now that I've switched to this oxide.

I really love this color! It's beautiful in my hand scrubs and the color came out lovely in bath bombs, but be advised this is an ultramarine, which can cause a sulfur smell in bath bombs. My lavender bath bombs aren't strong enough scent wise to mask this so I've had to switch to something else to color them. I'll continue to purchase this and other oxides though since I use them in other aspects of my business. Hoping I can blend my own purple from the blue, which might not have as strong of a sulfur smell, and the oxide red. I believe it's the citric acid in bath bombs that causes the bad smell to be enhanced, which is why it's totally fine in my sugar scrubs and soap projects. I love that a little goes such a long way!

A little goes a long way. I used this product in a batch of swirled lavender soap and funnel poured patchouli soap this weekend. Both turned out beautifully with the color I expected. For each batch I mixed a small scoop of the colorant with a teaspoon of oil. When I added my soap, I used a mini-mixer to help break up any specks.

I used this color to put into my lotion. It adds a great touch! You can put a little in for a nice light lavender color - or add more for a deeper color. It's a great bang for your buck. I'd buy again.

Had trouble blending this product. Plan on going back to the liquid coloring.
