Classic and adorable, these ornaments have been known to last a long time and what better way to enjoy them then with your favourite oils.
Supplies you will need:
• 1 cup flour (plus flour for kneading)
• ½ cup salt
• ½ cup water
• Approximately 5-7 drops of essential oils or oil blend
• Rolling pin
• Cookie cutters
• Baking sheet
• Non-toxic craft Paint (optional)
• Ribbon or string
Preheat your oven to 250 degrees. Mix together flour and salt in a bowl. Stir in water and drops of essential oil - combine until smooth. Use some extra flour to lightly dust countertop. Roll out dough until it’s around ¼ inch thick. Use cookie cutters to create shapes and pierce top of each shape with a hole using a straw or skewer/toothpick (slightly larger than ribbon or string). Place shapes on an ungreased baking sheet and bake in oven for 2-3 hours. Make sure they are completely dried before removing from oven. Allow ornaments to cool before painting. Paint one side of the ornaments to allow essential oils to still release from ornament (covering completely with paint will often seal in any scent benefits). String with ribbon or string and hang on tree.
*Please hang these higher up trees in homes with really young children or pets.
