Who remembers playing with slime as a child? I do! I do! It’s gooey, it’s colorful, and it’s kind of addicting! The best part about this Scented DIY Glitter Slime tutorial is that it’s scented.   Think orange, lavender, peppermint, lemon, spearmint, grapefruit and more.
If you consider yourself an oily parent, chances are you also have oily kids. I am always looking for ways to get more essential oils on my kiddos. They love using essential oils in everything just like their mama.
Adding essential oils to slime is an easy way for them to get the emotional benefits of an oil during playtime. Plus, playing with slime can be soothing and great for focus. Even adults will enjoy the sensory benefits of gooey slime between their fingers.
