Essential oils are a natural, aromatic substance extracted from plants. Essential oils are used in aromatherapy and homeopathic medicine. They can also be used as a cosmetic or fragrance.

The crafter of essential oil slime is a person who creates this type of slime for fun and to help their children learn about science and chemistry.

Slime is a gooey, stretchy substance that comes in different colors and tastes.The benefits of slime are endless. You can have fun with the product by playing with it or putting it in your slime recipes. You can also use the product for sensory play or even as an art form. It has been used as a toy for children and adults alike. However, it can also be used to create a variety of other fun things like slime art, slime science experiments and even slime-filled crafts.

Slime is typically made with borax or glue in order to make it stretchy and sticky. However, you don't have to buy these ingredients if you want to make your own slime at home. You can use cornstarch or tapioca starch instead of borax or glue if you want to save money on your purchase.

Below is a recipe I would recommend, however, the problem-solving begins with adding extra to make the slime just the way you want it.
