A great project for kids to make for their friends, and a great gift. You can choose whatever fragrance you like -- white musk is a favorite in our house.
- 2 tablespoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon Crisco
- 10 drops fragrance oil
- Place all ingredients in a small bowl and knead it with your fingers (it's a little messy).
- Form four balls by pressing the dough into little ball shapes.
- Place it on waxed paper and let beads air dry 24 hours.
Making this reminded me of kneading wheat flour(atta) dough to make chappatis. It is a little messy, but no pain, no gain, like they say! I made just 1 big ball instead of 4 small ones and I used orange fragrance oil. I substituted Crisco with regular cooking oil(we use Sunflower). I had fun making this! Thanks, mom dearest, for another good recipe!
