I just made some and they were like rock soup. Are they supposed to be a different texture. I added another cup of flour and that worked.

I know this is an old thread but i was wondering what colors people used to make them.  I was thinking about making them this weekend for the bathroom in my new apartment.  I know it says food coloring, so i was wondering if you could mix food coloring to make rock colors or what you did. 

I was thinking about putting them in a glass container with some fake flowers.  My bathroom is sort of a palm tree theme.  Creme & dark green colors. 

Any other ideas?

Thanks!

I made a mauve color for my rocks, but just play around with the blends of food coloring to get a nice color.

Grey earthy tones will go well with your palm tree theme or even a yellow tone and shape them like bamboo sticks..

have fun

I made my fragrant rocks this weekend!



They aren't quite done drying yet, but so far I'm happy with the results.  I used a whole wheat graham flour that had quite a bit of texture. 

Also, I used some Potpourri oil, that I just happened to have.  I found the fragrance oil at hobby lobby today which I think I will use if I do this again. 

I was wondering where you find essential oils though?  I didn't see any with the fragrance oil.  I was thinking of making some lip balm that says it requires essential oil so I was just wondering where I would find that. 

Thanks!

Your rocks look great....

Essential oils cab usually be found in health food stores, good pharmacy's that sell natural products and also some boutique beauty stores will also sell essential oils.

Good luck with the balm..
