So I wanted to make these bath melts

http://www.bebeautiful-beautyblog.com/2012/08/diy-lavender-chamomile-bath-melts.html

and have the ingredients to make this recipe.

But if I wanted to change them up and make something a bit different, like lemon chamomile (I'm more of a citrus person - so it could also be orange or tangerine), what should I do.  I was going to replace the oil with lemon EO, but could I also add dried lemon zest, or would something like dried lemongrass be better?  Is dried zest OK?

I personally wouldn't add anything "chunky" like zest, I wouldn't want anything in my bath that doesn't dissolve. I think that recipe is kinda weird Cheesy

Ya, I agree, no chunky bits. Lol.  You could try some lemon or orange powders.

Well, in case others don't want floaty bits of batonicals in their bath water, I did make some, and am including tea bag filters for them to pop the melts into and throw into the water.  For those who don't mind, I did grind the tea and lavender finely with a mortar and pestle.  They do smell lovely and the oils were lovely on the skin.  I went with the lavender and chamomile, but may make citrus ones later - I think the tea bag filters will help with the chunky bits issue.
