Okra gel is similar in color to FSG, not dark. Not sure where the name Mudd came from??? possibly the earthy smell of the gel before you add EO to scent it???

I dissolved my guar gum in cold water before adding it to the gel. I have had different thickening agents "ball" up like that. The immersion blender usually helps a little. After that, I remove the bigger pieces. (and stop using that one, LOL!)
