Children will love learning about aromatherapy and essential oils when you use a variety of oils and colors.

🌈Some fun essential oils could include: ⠀
Wild Orange (happy)⠀
Peppermint (energizing)⠀
Citrus Bliss (uplifting)⠀
Rosemary (invigorating)⠀
Balance (grounding)⠀
or Lavender (calming)⠀

2 cups flour⠀
2 cups colored water (use skin safe food coloring)⠀
1 cup salt⠀
1 tablespoon olive oil⠀
1 teaspoon cream of tartar⠀
5 drops of doTERRA essential oils ⠀

• Mix all ingredients, except for essential oils, in a large saucepan and stir until combined⠀
• Once combined, put over medium heat⠀
• Using a spatula, continue to stir ingredients together until it forms a ball⠀
Note: Don’t overcook as it will lead to dry play dough⠀
• Remove from heat and cool on parchment paper⠀
• Once cool, add five drops of your favorite doTERRA essential oil and knead until thoroughly combined⠀
• You’re done! Just store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for months of fun⠀
