In fact, excessive exposure to the chemical-packed version of Slime can cause skin irritation.
Not to worry! Here’s a recipe for an all-natural, chemical-free Slime that your kids will love making and playing with!
LEMON LIME ALL-NATURAL SLIME RECIPE
• 1 c. Cornstarch
• 1 package Sugar-Free Lime Gelatin
• 3 drops Lemon Essential Oil
• 3/4 c. Warm Water
Place the Cornstarch, Gelatin, and Lemon Essential Oil in a glass mixing bowl and stir well to completely combine. Slowly add the Warm Water and mix until you reach the desired consistency. It should be somewhat runny, without any clumps, but not so runny that it sticks to your hands. You can also use Sugar Free Pudding instead of Gelatin to switch things up a bit and add new scent combinations to your Slime.
Keep your Slime in an airtight plastic container between uses, remembering to choose a container that is graded okay for use with Essential Oils. Storing your Slime in the refrigerator will help it last longer, but since there are no preservatives, it is advisable to make a new batch after about a week of consistent regular Slime play.
