Aroma Therapy Play-Dough

     Looking for a calming activity for your little ones to do?  Try mixing up a batch of lavender scented play-dough. The combination of lavender and the warmth of the freshly made play dough, makes for a very relaxing time.
Here's a good play dough recipe, that you can add essential oils to, to make any scent you wish.

  • 1 cup flour
  • ¼ cup salt
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • A few drops of food coloring (optional)
  • A couple of drops of essential oil
    Mix the dry ingredients together in a medium saucepan. Slowly add the water mixed with oil and dye and stir over medium heat until mixture thickens and starts to pull away from the sides of the pan. When cool enough to handle, kneed until smooth.
