  4. In a glass, pour the water, the 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil and drops of essential oil.
  5. Mix this liquid preparation well.
  6. Gradually add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture while energetically whiskinging order not to activate the preparation.
  7. Once a beautiful powdery substance has been obtained, separate it into several bowls to add the desired colors.
  8. To color the powder, you can use clay, spirulina, food coloring, …
  9. To give the desired shape to your pebbles, you just have to pack the powder into a silicone mold. Do the same if you want a ball shape, flowers, tarts, …
  10. Once the molds are filled, let them dry in a dry place for a minimum of 24 hours.
  11. The pebbles are ready !!

For our pebbles we opted for coconut oil and a ylang-ylang essential oil, and we opted for tropical colors thanks to organic green spirulina, matcha powder and food dyes.

Just keep the peebles away from moisture.
