Kids and Aromatherapy Play Dough

If you are looking for something fun and creative to do with your kiddos, make aromatherapy play dough, it's super fun and easy!  It is also a great way for them to learn what aromatherapy is and more about essential oils. Some of my favorite oil suggestions are: Wild Orange, Peppermint, Lemon, Rosemary, Balance, Serenity, Citrus Bliss.


  • 2 cups flour 
  • 2 cups colored water 
  • 1 cup salt 
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil 
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar 
  • 5 drops of essential oils  

  1. Combine all ingredients, except for essential oils, in a large saucepan and stir until combined.
  2. 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.
  3. Remove from heat and cool on parchment paper.
  4. Once cool, add five drops of your favorite essential oil and knead until thoroughly combined.
  5. You’re done! Just store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for months of fun.
