Full moon, storms building up and the end of a busy week.. I think it's time for some calming essential oil infused play dough play 💚
We made ours in our thermomix and divided it into four different doTERRA essential oil and colour combinations:
🌿 110g rock salt or granulated
🌿 20g cream of tartar
🌿 250g boiling water
🌿 250g plain flour
🌿 10g olive oil
🌿 Natural food colouring (amount will depend on the desired colour intensity)
🌿 2 drops of your favorite calming essential oil
Add salt to thermomix bowl and mill 10 seconds/speed 10.
Add cream of tartar and mix for 5 seconds/speed 5.
Scrape down sides, add water and cook for 5 minutes/60 degrees/speed 3.
Add the flour and oil and knead for 1 minute/kneading function.
Tip dough onto a lightly floured bench, knead together by hand, then divide into 4 equal parts.
Poke a little indent into each piece of dough and drop in your desired food colour and 2 drops of your chosen essential oil, then knead until they reach the desired colour intensity.
Once cool, your dough is ready for play!
Store in an airtight container between use.
