Lemon Essential Oil Playdough To Cure Your Bad Mood

Bad Day Playdough with Lemon Essential Oil

At my house, we love making playdough, and we decided it would be fun  to make lemon essential oil playdough to make us feel better when we’re feeling a little down.

Lemon essential oil is said to make you feel more energetic, happy, and even help improve your memory.  So, why not let your kids play with this lemon scented playdough when they’re studying for a big test?

Lemon Essential Oil Playdough

You only need a few ingredients for Lemon Essential Oil Playdough

  • 2 Cups of Flour
  • 2 Tbsp Oil (I used coconut oil melted in the microwave)
  • 1/2 Cup of Salt
  • 2 Tbsp Cream Of Tartar (You can find this on the spice aisle)
  • 1 1/2 Cup Boiling Water
  • 10-20 Drops Lemon essential oil (Depending on how strong you like the scent to be)
  • Food Coloring

Stir together your salt, flour, cream of tartar and oil in a big bowl.

Add the boiling water and keep stirring until it forms a dough. When it’s mixed pretty thoroughly and has had a chance to cool a bit, add the essential oil and food coloring.

Knead the dough until the dye is thoroughly mixed into the dough. This takes a while, but keep working at it! And be careful, because it could still be really hot!

Lemon Essential Oil Playdough

We love our lemon essential oil playdough. My daughter and her friends played with it for hours and even took it to the restaurant to play with instead of their iPads! (That was quite a huge feat for these tech-crazed girls!)

It smells amazing, but if it starts to lose it’s smell, you can always just add a few more drops of lemon essential oil to the mix. And, if it starts to dry out, you can just add a few drops of oil.

I don’t know if it was the essential oils or the playdough that made their mood better, but they laughed and enjoyed themselves the entire time they played with this bad mood playdough!

We will definitely be making it again!

We used yellow dye in our playdough to make ours  look like a lemon, but you could make it in any color!  Or even try natural playdough dyes like they used over at Mommypotamus!
