Scented Rocks

Scented Rocks

1/2 cup Salt
1/2 cup Plain Flour
2/3 cup Boiling Water
1/4 teaspoon Essential Oil

Food Coloring, if desired Bowl and Spoon
Mix dry ingredients in bowl.
Add oil and water.
Scent will be strong, but will fade slightly when dry.
Add food coloring, one drop at a time until you have the color you want - or make more than one color by separating the mix into different bowls.
Blend all together.
Shape to look like rocks, then let stones dry.
Place them in a pretty dish or bowl, or make sachets by adding them to a small bag. Sachets can be placed in closets or drawers to keep things smelling good.
