I used regular food coloring and essential oils in peppermint, lavender and grapefruit. We are very pleased with their consistency. All except the lavender. I over cooked just a bit, and is an obvious color fail but no one else seems to mind that it's black.
1 1/2c. salt
2T. cream of tartar
Mix dry ingredients together in a non-stick pot. Add water, oil and food coloring (to your desired color) to dry mixture and cook over very low heat until dough becomes solid (only a few minutes). Don't over cook or it will become dry and brittle. Remove from heat and knead until smooth. Let cool. I divided the complete mixture into three separate bowls before cooking and added the color and oils before I cooked them in separate pots.
