Please know that I am not a doctor. I can’t tell you that what works for us will work for you. All I can tell you is that I am a momma who has done a lot of research and I know first hand what oils work for us. We do use a specific brand.

Lavender Essential Oil Moon Dough
4 cups of white flour
½ cup of baby oil
5-7 drops of lavender essential oil
Red and blue food coloring, optional
1. In your mixing bowl add the 4 cups of flour and ½ cup of baby oil. Mix well.
2. Add 3-4 drops each of the red and blue food coloring. Then, add the 5-7 drops of lavender oil. Knead the dough so the color disperses.
3. Take the mixture into your hands and knead it. The heat from your hands will help form and soften it into shape.
4. To use your moon dough, just form the dough in your hand or molds to make a variety of shapes. If the dough is still too crumbly, add a few drops of baby oil at a time until it is the consistency you wish.
Store your lavender moon dough in an air tight container when not in use and it should stay fresh for weeks. Should it loose its consistency, just add a few more drops of baby oil and mix until softened again.
