Aromatherapy playdough should be in every parent’s rainy day toolkit. Tailor your aromatherapy dough to suit your child’s moods, or simply your taste.

Begin with a batch of our Easy Peasy No Cook Playdough Recipe or our Cooked Playdough Recipe

Select your colouring to suit the scent of the dough:

Creative Play/Cheerful

add one drop each of

  • Mandarin
  • Sweet Orange
  • Neroli

Calming

add one drop each of

  • Lavender
  • Neroli

Cold/Flu

add one drop each of

  • Tea Tree
  • Eucalyptus
  • Lavender

 

The heat from your child’s hands will release the scent of the oils. Essential oils are very concentrated, so never use more than a drop of each oil in each batch.

    Your playdough recipe has way too much oil in it. We made two batches that left your hands completely covered in oil. Also, it didn’t have the right texture; it was too crumbly instead of smooth and pliable. Please re-research it. Your idea of using essential oils is a great one. Thanks for that.

      Hi Scrumbly

      The addition of 1-2 drops of essential oil does not change the easy peasy no cook playdough recipe to any great extent. We have tested this before and it works fine. What are the exact ingredients you are using?
