Lavandar Patchouli Goatmilk Swirl

Used the last of my alkanet infused olive oil (it´s been sitting in the window for months) and goatmilk for the liquid.  Wouldn´t you know - after a few weeks curing, the white is quite tan.  But on the other hand, the purple, which was almost black, has faded to a reasonable dark purple.  In my first experiment with alkanet, it didn´t hold the color longer than the curing period before it started turning a very unpleasant peuce color, so we´ll see.  I do have to say that the scent is holding about the best of the batches I´ve made so far - a lovely lavendar, orange, and patchouli blend.
