Here's a fun project to do with the kids or grand kids or just with yourself!

You can make homemade Easter Eggs that are sprinkled with your essential oils. These are fun and healthy to play with and make a great decoration!


--Mix 1 cup flour, 1/4 cup salt, 2 tablespoons cream of tarter, 1 tablespoon oil, and 1 cup water in a medium-sized pot until well blended.

--Cook the mixture in the pot over medium-low heat until it forms a thick dough that is no longer sticky (approximately 5 minutes).

Stir this continuously.

You can tell it is done when it no longer sticks to the sides of the pan, but forms a clump of dough in the middle of the pan.

(*Helpful hint: the dough will become fairly hard to stir before it gets done, so an extra set of hands to help stir may be useful.)

--Remove the dough from the pan and place on waxed paper. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes.

--Divide the dough into four equal pieces.

--For each of the four pieces of dough, add approximately 10 drops of different colored food coloring, and knead until the color is well blended into the dough.

--Add approximately 8-10 drops of different essential oils or blends to each of the four pieces of dough and knead for about 60 seconds. If you find the scent of the dough is not strong enough, add a few more drops of the essential oil or blend.

(*Helpful hint: to make sure both the food coloring and the essential oil or blend stay in the dough and don't drip off, create a well in the top of the piece of dough with your finger, drop the coloring or oil in the well, fold the dough so it closes over the well opening, then continue to knead the dough as normal.)

--Form these into egg shaped balls

--Store each piece of dough in a Ziploc bag, or other airtight container

--Sit them on some Easter grass on Easter Sunday - so they look and smell pretty!
