Here's my FSG recipe, if it helps with proportions:
I soak 1/4 c flax seed in 1 c aloe vera juice (or water.) Steep 2 T each of marshmallow & burdock roots in 2 c boiling water. The next day, I strain the herbs and add it all to 4 c water--cook and strain.
For every cup of FSG, I add:
1 oz EW SAJ
1/2 t citric acid
1/4 t Vit E
1/2 t honeyquat
1/4 t Sucragel AOF
1/4 t Potassium Sorbate
1/4 magnesium chloride flakes
1/8 t EO
thickener based on what it needs. I use Hydroethylcellulose, xanthum gum or another one that I'd have to look up.
The Sucragel AOF has sucrose, glycerin and sweet almond oil in it. The T of oil is WAY too much.
