In an effort to ditch the synthetic dyes and scents, I decided it was time to make my own playdough. Turns out, it's easier than I thought! Here's to DIY Simply Citrus Playdough in under 10 minutes!
Step 1: All Natural Color
You can get vibrant color without chemical dye! Heat 1 cup of water and mix in 3/4 teaspoons of a rusty colored spice (I used Tumeric to get yellow). Stir until the spice dissolves (for the most part).
Step 2: Mix that Dough
In a medium kettle, mix the dough ingredients.
Stir the ingredients together. Add the colored water mixture. For the citrus scent, add a few drops of your favorite pure citrus essential oil. Here's where I get mine. Stir everything together.
Step 3: Cook it Up
Turn the stove on to Low-Med, and stir your playdough mixture while it cooks for 3-5 minutes. It will thicken quickly!
Let it cool then knead it for a minute and store in an airtight container. I used a cleaned Ghee glass jar and it was perfect!
There you have it! Great smelling playdough made from natural colors and scents! Want more oily goodness? Hop over to the Restoring Simple Harmony community.
