Kid-Friendly Aroma Art

Whether you’re a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, sibling or friend, chances are you’ve noticed how the children in your life enjoy getting the green light to get their little hands messy. You might even remember this thrill from your own childhood! Do you know how dōTERRA essential oils can easily be incorporated into hands-on sensory activities? Try these two do-it-yourself recipes, and invite the little ones in your life to join you! One thing to remember: encourage children to avoid touching the eye area with essential oils on their hands.  There are lots of other activities that incorporate aroma and art projects.  Ask me for more creative ideas by commenting below!  You can also subscribe to my blog to get my new stuff as it is published.
