I bought some lime essential oil to make bath bombs and was expecting it to smell like lime juice.  Once I opened the bottle, I was reminded of all the green sweets I spurned as a child.  For this reason, I added some sugar stars to the mix.


I added a fair amount of green food colouring to the mix and they looked lovely and E-number heavy when I first made them. Now they've dried out, you can't really tell that I added any at all.  I've learned for next time, though.

Um, just some green food colouring from the local supermarket. I think the mix looked brighter when it was wet?  They're a very pale green that doesn't show in the photograph.  I usually overdo things so I was careful not to add too much.
