Gluten Free Aromatherapy Playdough

Playdough can keep my kids busy (and quiet!) for HOURS, but there can be consequences with traditional “Play-doh” that most of us played with as kids. While it seems harmless, it can be dangerous to those with Celiac Disease or a wheat allergy, especially if it gets in the mouth.

According to a statement on the Hasbro website: “The exact ingredients of Play-Doh compound are proprietary, so we cannot share them with you. We can tell you that it is primarily a mixture of water, salt and flour. It does NOT contain peanuts, peanut oil, or any milk byproducts. It DOES contain wheat.”

In order to keep my celiac daughter safe, I’ve been making our own playdough for years. It’s really simple and quick to make your own at home! I also love adding essential oils for aromatherapy benefits. Some fun essential oils to add could include: Wild OrangePeppermintLemon, Balance or Lavender.
