DIY: Homemade Slime w/ Essentials oils

So I had the kids over this week (My little sister and nephew) and we decided to make some homemade slime. This apparently has been a big thing in the kid community so today we teach you how to make it! of course, I had to add my own twist to it and add some essential oils. 🙂

Make sure to print the supplies list and look for the YouTube video below to follow along if you haven’t already!!

Lets get started!!

What you need:

  • 2 Teaspoons Borax
  • 1 1/2 Cups Water
  • 5 Ounce Bottle of Elmer’s Glue
  • Food Coloring
  • Glitter (Optional)
  • Essential Oils (optional)

What you do:

  1.  In a mixing bowl, add 1 cup of water and borax powder. Stir the ingredients together until well combined. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl, pour in the entire bottle of glue and add the remaining water. Stir until well combined.
  3. Add 3-5 drops of  food coloring and combine well.
  4.  Add 3-5 drops of your favorite essential oil. (optional)
  5. Add the glitter mix until combined. (optional)
  6.  Pour the borax mixture into the glue mixture and stir. You should instantly see it start to turn. Let it sit for just a moment so it can soak up the water.
  7.  Store in a mason jar or Ziploc baggie.
