Aromatherapy Salt Ornament Ingredients:

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup salt
  • 1 ½ cups warm water
  • Favourite doTERRA essential oils


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
2. Pour flour, salt, and warm water into a large bowl.
3. Using your hands, knead until all ingredients are well-incorporated and the dough is smooth.
4. If the mixture is too dry, add one tablespoon of water at a time until the dough comes together.
5. Roll out dough on a floured surface until ¼ inch thick.
6. Using cookie cutters, cut out desired shapes and place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
7. Using a drinking straw or toothpick, make a hole in the top of the ornament for threading string.
8. Place in oven until hard, approximately one hour.
9. Once hard, remove from oven and cool.
10. Decorate with paint, string, or glitter. Add essential oils by placing one drop on each ornament and allowing it to soak in.
Tip: Add some decoration to your ornaments by stamping them. Just place a stamp on ink and carefully place on the ornament to transfer design before they dry.

Note: Baking the ornament will turn the dough slightly brown and may “puff” up some of the ornaments. If you prefer, you can also air-dry the ornaments for two to three days to help the ornaments remain white and flat.

I hope you enjoy these AWESOME Salt Dough Ornaments! I know what we are doing on the weekend!

Please always ensure it is 100% pure essential oil and if using doTERRA Essential Oil, as it is high quality, you don’t need a lot as it is extremely strong 😊
