Top Review by Lalaloula

This is such a lovely gift idea! I made it for my mom and since I need to keep it for a bit longer I didnt add the water just yet. But when I used a bit of this to test it out I put it into liquid and it turned a very nice yellow colour. And its very aromatic, too.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this winner with us, Ana!
