Slime is all the things and more right now, isn’t it? I mean there are so many different varieties, that the possibilities are practically endless. We have our rainbow slime, glitter slime, and so much more! This time, I’m sharing the Aromatherapy Lavender Slime Recipe!

Kids seem to never get bored and never have enough! Making slime is not difficult. It gets to the point that even some kids can even make it on their own! Yes, it can make a mess but it is an easily cleaned-up mess. One thing that I love about slime is that it can be such a calming and centering activity for kids.

We tend to make a lot of slime during the summer months because it’s a great way to stay away from the screens and do some creative learning time as well.

So grab lots of our other easy slime recipes too.

When they need a break from learning or need some extra sensory in their lives, slime is where it’s at. For this slime recipe, I took it one step further. Have you ever seen the calming effect that lavender can have on anyone, but kids in particular? It is wonderful!

Lavender has a way of centering anyone who comes into contact with it. Essential oils are a fantastic way to include this scent into the slime and in turn, help kids calm down naturally.

This is my favorite! The Aromatherapy Lavender Slime recipe is the best around!

There’s just something about the way that slime can help calm the day that is just great. Kids tend to play with slime because it’s sticky and stretchy, but sometimes, I like to use this slime as well!

The smell is what I love about the slime and I’ll find that on the days that I’m feeling a bit stressed or rushed, I just like to grab the slime and work it in my hands.

It’s amazing the calming effect and the mental clarity that can come from something so simple!

Is this slime sticky?

It’s not! That’s the biggest complaint and worry that parents have is that the slime is going to literally melt out of their kid’s hands and soak into the carpet or furniture.

This slime isn’t meant to be a sticky slime. As long as the directions for making slime are followed, there shouldn’t be any sort of sticky mess that you’re going to have to deal with at all.

Be sure to talk to the kids as well so that they know what to look out for if the slime is too messy. A good slime shouldn’t leave residue on their hands and not be able to be balled up to play with.

Lavender Slime Ingredients

All you need to make this simple slime are the ingredients listed below. I also like to keep slime ingredients on hand at all times so that we can whip up a new slime anytime the mood strikes.

How to store slime

Everyone knows that it’s the worst when the slime dries out and it starts to get hard! While slime doesn’t last forever, there are a few things that you can be doing to help the slime stay fresh and stretchy.

It really does come down to how you store the slime. Make sure that you have an airtight container that you can add the slime to so that it keeps it locked in fresh and out of the air.

I like to use a clear glass jar or container, but you can also use a bag that seals well also. The main thing that you need to do is to have it airtight so as long as you have that, you should be good to go.

It’s also important to note that slime isn’t going to last forever. It does have a shelf life of a few weeks or months, typically, because that’s just how slime is. Storing it properly will help to make it last longer, however!

Can I add other essential oil scents to this slime recipe?

You can! Just be sure that you’re using a safe essential oil for kids and one that you can touch and not have to worry about.

This is why I use lavender because it’s calming and safe to use in this slime recipe.
