DIY Play-Doh

This month, our team is focusing on the kiddos! SOOO many mamas out there are benefiting from using oils in their own daily lives and the lives of this babes as well. One way that we are doing this is by creating our own sensory play-doh! 

I remember making play-doh with my mom as a child and it was always a blast! Making it with oils is even better!! And, let's be real: play-doh isn't just for littles! College students, moms, and grandparents love it too!

The three scents that we are making are (1) lavender, (2) citrus fresh, and (3) peace & calming. You could really make an scent that you want, but we are making these three because they are kiddo safe and smell AMAZING!!

Here's how:

  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup salt
  • 1 TBSP oil
  • 1 cup cold water
  • food coloring
  • favorite essential oils


Combine the flour and salt. Add water, food coloring, and oil. Mix together until the ingredients are combined. Knead well! (If the consistency is too wet, add a bit more flour) Add five drops of Young Living essential oil to each ball. Knead well to evenly distribute the essential oils.
