Pink Licorice

So I took a break from using my mold dividers and did a hanger swirl. I used a dark grey mica and was happy with the resulting black and mixed some pink ultramarine and hot pink mica for the pink.
A mix of Raspberry fragrance oil and Aniseed Essential oil make up the Pink Licorice fragrance.
I got some nice big bars from the batch. Using my silicone mold without the dividers means I can fill the mold all the way up and it stays full. I still haven't mastered pulling out the dividers without loosing soap.
Below is a photo of my Licorice soap from last year and the recipe. The recipe makes a little over 4 pounds, for my 3lb silicone mold I multiplied the amounts by .75
Lye/ Water Portion:
208 grams lye
539 grams water
454 grams Coconut oil
398 grams Palm oil
100 grams Cocoa Butter
495 grams Olive oil
