Essential Oil Cloud Dough

Here is another cold-weather activity that the kids will love! We made this at cub scouts one night and yes it was messy but the kids had a fantastic time. Cloud dough is easy to prepare and can be used at home or in your classroom. Kids will love the sensory experience of seeing, smelling, feeling, and playing with their own cloud dough. Cloud dough is also great as a sensory tool and for people that feel stressed and/or anxious. Just squashing it into different shapes can be therapeutic.

Use a variety of oils and colours to help kids learn new scents. Some fun essential oils could include Wild Orange or Peppermint.

1 cup of Cornflour
1 cup of Conditioner
Food Colouring
5 drops of favourite essential oils


  1. Combine all ingredients into a bowl. You may find it too dry, add more Conditioner but not too much. You need an even balance of both ingredients.
  2. You’re done! Just store it in an airtight container in the fridge for months of fun.
Note: The great thing about essential oils is the range and benefits they provide. For relaxation, try Lavender or Lavender Peace®. For a mood boost, try Wild Orange or Citrus Bliss®.
Aromatherapy is a great way to calm down kids. It also helps them stay focused and relaxed. If you are looking for a way to help your child cope with anxiety, then you should try out this recipe for this cloud dough. Even if you want to entertain them for a couple of hours while it is cold and raining outside this will also fill the house with lovely aromas 😊
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 😊
