Camomile playdough recipe





              Yes, I have been experimenting yet again with playdough scents!!

I thought that today I would get experimenting again. I love the idea of using teabags to create scented playdough and had some camomile teabags which I thought I would try. The scent is not a particularly strong one, but it does give that calming sensation. I am not saying it was the playdough flavour making my child this way, but my little one was very chilled out playing with the dough today (she even told me "I am a little bit tired, Mummy!") But who knows, maybe this recipe has magical calming powers!

I used the basic recipe as I have before

1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1 Cup warm water (with tea bag having been in water for 3 mins)
1 tbsp Oil
2 tsp Cream of tartar

Mix dry ingredients together, add wet ingredients and stir on low heat until smooth and bound together. Remove from heat and knead until cooled and in ball shape ready to be used!
