Now is the time to start thinking about sharing the Young Living love at Christmas. Brooke from Natural Health How To, and I are sharing a total of 30 Christmas gift ideas all made with essential oils with you this month, one gift a day to help you choose some gifts to make for others this Christmas. What could be better than a handmade, healthy Christmas gift from you this year?

Here’s a great gift idea for the kids!  Make your own healthy non toxic play dough scented with beautiful essential oils!   My kids loved playing with this play dough and I know it is healthy for them and they will love the calming scents that emerge while they are moulding the play dough.  

I made lemon and cinnamon, Christmas Spirit and Peppermint scented Play Dough.


Scented Play Dough

Day 8: 30 Days of Christmas Gifts with essential oils: Scented Play Dough
  • Author: Katherine Kyle
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes


If you want to colour your dough you can either use natural food colouring or other powders.  I used the following:

  • 1 tablespoons of beetroot powder for the pink dough -Christmas Spirit  (like this)
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon powder for the yellow one – Lemon 
  • 1 tablespoon of green powder for the green one – Peppermint (like this)


  • Add all of the ingredients apart from the essential oils to a pan and simmer over a low heat while stirring until a dough forms.  
  • kneed until the texture is a dough (1-2 minutes) then divide the recipe into 3.  
  • In 3 different bowls kneed in the colour and the essential oil until mixed through.


Wrap in plastic wrap.  These will keep for 3 months.
