Balance Play Dough

I posted awhile back about the amazing play dough recipe we use.  Its a great recipe (perfectly squishy!), and we make it even more fun with a healthy dose of glitter.

Well, this week we took things one step further!

I decided to make some special "Balance" play dough, using doTERRA's Balance essential oil that "creates a sense of calm and well-being" and "promotes tranquility and a sense of balance." 

Heavens knows we need more calm of in this house full of girls!

I simply added about 6-8 drops of Balance to the dough, after it cooled. Who knows if it was because of the Balance or just my lucky stars, but the girls did play nicely together with it while I took a shower! After they were done playing with it, I put the dough in a airtight container to keep it nice and soft.

I also want to make some Lavender play dough, and maybe a pale orange Citrus Bliss play dough as well. With glitter of course!!

To get your own bottle of Balance, check out my friend Sarah at oilRN.com. Oh, and keep an eye out on my Instagram (@thehowtomom), for an upcoming giveaway from me and @theOilRN!
