  • Already have play dough on hand?  
  • Great! 
  • Mix a few drops of eucalyptus oil into the dough that you already have.  
  • You now have eucalyptus play dough!
  • Use more or less food coloring as desired.  If you want a richer coloring at any time just add more food coloring & mix it in.
