Your recipe sounds pretty good but I think if you want the
maximum terp bang for your buck I would do two things
differently. i would use cajeput (I think it smells a lot like
eucalyptus, just a little sweeter, less bracing) and I would let the
past stand AT LEAST 24 hours after you add the terp EO. i don't
really get the darkest color until the paste is 3-5 days old which
means letting it sit 48 hours after terping it.

As for the sugar, i usually add it when i add the lemon (or
grapefruit) juice in the initial mix. i don't know if this makes a
difference or not.

Try these suggestions and do a side-by-side with your method
and see if it works for you. I am getting near black on palms
without much effort so it IS possible!

And keep sharing photos of your work...love it.
