    Thanks for sharing this great idea! Preciously I had done one without the essential oil and now you had inspired me with new this idea! I had copied a picture, your recipe and steps to my blog, please let me know if I can’t do so. Thanks.

    next time you can try using beet powder for colouring, natural & gives a great purple!

    […] The other day, I was procrastinating something-or-other browsing the blogosphere and I came across this amazing discovery: Scented Playdough with a Valentine Twist! […]

    The addition of petals really makes this so nice.

    I am so glad I’m not alone in my Ohio winter love! Hearts strung along the mantle might make my heart beat even faster.

    Happy (belated) new year to you and yours,

    I love this. We love making our own play dough. I was just thinking today it was time to make more. I’m going to give this recipe a try. I’ll need to head to the store for more supplies first.

    I love this time of year, too. This is such a great idea for my girls to bring to give to their classmates on valentine’s day.
    I can imagine the smell right now.

    …And all your little valentine’s cats and fawns are super cute!

    We are in Ohio too and I dislike the gray days. Seems so drab right now as all of the snow has melted here.

    LOVE your idea and hope to try it! Your snail turned out so cute!

    Ooh that looks fabulous! I love the herbs- that’s super fun! Thanks so much, I’ll be linking.

    Such a sweet idea! We’ll be trying this too. Any other V-day ideas traditions you have with your little ladies?

    I never thought about using herbs and oil in play-doh. I can’t wait to make a bunch of this for my nephews and Sunday School peanuts!

    This dough is so beautiful! I’ll have to make this with my kids, I think we would all really enjoy it! I already put all my Christmas decorations away, but after reading your post, I think I might dig out the white lights and hang them back up. We really could use some lights to warm up our evenings, as it’s so cold, snowy and dark here (Alberta!).
    Thanks for sharing the dough recipe!

    That looks so pretty. Bet it smells great in your kitchen right now too!

    I love the playdough idea/recipe. Very creative and fun! I hope to try it soon. We’ve done salt dough not too long ago and homemade cinnamon dough ornaments – we are ready to try something new. Thanks for this wonderful idea :-)

    I love making playdough. I’ve never thought of making rose scented with flower petals, thanks for the super idea! We are going to add this to our activities next month.

    I love to scent it with oils, too. :)
    Though I haven’t yet tried tossing in herbs for decorating – love that idea.

    Also – wanted to tell you that I keep white icicle lights around our front room window (on the inside) all throughout winter. (It looks especially lovely with hanging hearts.)
    Love that.

    Wintertime should definitely have little white lights!!

    We were going to do a similar thing for teacher Valentine’s gifts but I like this even better! Thanks!!!

  24. Joy

    Ooh thanks! We’ll definitely try this soon!

    We do this exact same recipe at our house, and it is SO fun! We also love to decorate with cinnamon dough sculptures at this time of year, and since the girls just received a beautiful vintage tea set from their great-aunt (isn’t that the best person from whom to receive a vintage tea set?), I’m thinking that next week will be spent making oven-dried play dough goodies.
