Annatto Seeds Whole - Yellow/Orange

Quick Overview

These seeds can be infused in one of your liquid oils.  Depending on the colour you want; 1 tsp of seeds to 500g of oil gives you a pale yellow.  For a darker  colour increase the amount of seeds.  Leave to infuse for 1-2 weeks.  The longer you let the seeds infuse the stronger your colour will be.  Strain out the seeds before using.

You can also infuse the seeds in your oil in a crock pot or double boiler.  Leave on low heat approximately 2 hours.  Strain the seeds before using the oil in your soap making.
