The pH litmus dye chemical, 7-hydroxyphenoxazone, shown below, is extracted from lichens. You can make test solutions or paper by adding it to water or filter paper respectively. It changes from red to blue when exposed to alkaline materials (bases) such as sea water, baking soda, milk of magnesia, ammonia or oven cleaner.
