Well I jumped on this band wagon and what a great ride!

Here is what I do:

2 cups of distilled water
1 package of frozen okra ( whole or sliced; I have used both)
Boil until gummy, then I strain and add:
1 tbsp of agave nector
1/8 tsp of tropical scent
1 tsp of vegetable glycerin
1 tsp of almond or rosemary oil.

I don't add anything else because I couldn't find the thickener and don't want to order online. The gel consistency is like mucous. Hey it works. It makes enough to last me about 2 weeks and I keep it in the refrigerator.
