Lavender Scented Playdough

2 cups flour
1 cup salt
4 teaspoons cream of tartar
2 tablespoons cooking oil
2 cups water
red and blue food coloring (or purple)
lavender essential oil
dried lavender buds (optional)

Put flour through water ingredients in medium saucepan and place over medium heat. Stir constantly. After it is nicely mixed, add 8 drops blue and 10 drops red food coloring. When it starts thickening, add about 1/4 cup lavender buds if you like. Remove from pan when it becomes a soft doll.

Put ball on lightly floured countertop and surface. Let cool for a minute. Make a well in the middle of the ball and place 15-20 drops essential oil in the middle. Fold ball over itself, dust top with flour and knead. Let ball cool and store in a plastic container or zip top bag. For a list of all my Playdough recipes check HERE
