  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1.5 tablespoons vegetable oil (any kind of oil will work!)
  • Food coloring
  • 68 drops of essential oils of your choice (see blends we share in the post)


  1. In a saucepan, stir the flour, salt, and cream of tartar together.
  2. Add in the water, cooking oil, and food coloring and mix until smooth.
  3. Turn on the heat to medium-low, and stir until the mixture forms a ball.
  4. Once the mixture has reached play dough-consistency, remove it from the heat and allow it to cool for 3-4 minutes.
  5. Knead in the essential oils of your choice. ( I poked a hole in the center, dropped in the oils and it mixed very easily)
  6. Store in an air-tight container. (Storing it in the fridge will make it last even longer!)
