Make DIY Play Dough Adults Will Love, Too
Mix up a batch of this essential oil-scented dough and feel the stress melt away.
I couldn’t tell you how many times I wished I had more play dough as a kid. So when I learned how simple it was to make my own as an adult, I was basically living the dream. With just 10 minutes and some baking supplies, along with your favorite essential oils, you can have a totally grown-up version. See how easily it all comes together:

Adding essential oils to play dough makes it as fragrant as it is fun.
The added essential oils cover up the not-so-great salt dough smell and are perfect for everyday stress relief. The best news? That means you don’t have to buy one of those boring old stress balls for your desk. And hey, if you want to make this kid-safe, just leave out the essential oil. Not only is it non-toxic, but it’s also edible. (I’m just not saying it’ll taste great.)
