Directions

Mix all ingredients except the boiling water and eucalyptus oil together into a large mixing bowl.

Add the boiling water and mix well (note: the food colouring will mix in better if added to the boiling water). Take care when using boiling water around children.

Stir well until the mixture is well combined.

Add a few drops of eucalyptus oil and knead till combined. Make sure you only add less than 1ml of Eucalyptus oil as any more can be toxic to children.

Roll it out on a flat surface – now you’re ready for playdough fun!

TIP: The playdough will last quite a few days if overed with  plastic wra and stored in an air tight container. DO NOT allow your child to ingest the playdough. Supervise their play at all time.

Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Oil

100% Pure Emu Ridge Eucalyptus oil, we have been producing this wonderful product since 1991. Eucalyptus oil is antibacterial and anti-fungal, removes oil based stains and sticky things, acts as a penetrating oil, as well as having medicinal properties. Therefore is an ideal natural product for in and around the house, in the workshop and for the body. Due to regulations Eucalyptus Oil is only available within Australia.

This unique oil is the only one of it’s kind in the world. It is distilled from the leaf of the Kangaroo Island Narrow Leaf Mallee (Eucalyptus cneorifolia). Emu Ridge is the only commercial Eucalyptus Distillery remaining in South Australia.
Distillation of the oil began in the 1880’s and dozens of stills were established, making it one of the Island’s major industries.
One company, F.H.Faulding & Co purchased Emu Ridge in 1923, establishing two plantations in 1938 for the purpose of systematically harvesting it on a rotational basis. (The Narrow Leaf responds well to pruning.) Most success, however, was achieved by individuals who set up stills as a seasonal sideline.
Our oil is distilled in the traditional method at Emu Ridge. The leaf is placed into a pot containing water, beneath which a fire is lit, steam carrying the oil is passed through a system of cooling pipes, the oil separates and is piped off into containers. The raw oil undergoes another refining process to produce the final product crystal clear oil.
Native farming is far better for our environment, no sprays and chemicals, a great renewable resource and natural product.

Use Tea Tree oil because Nail and Foot Fungi isn’t Nice!

Nail and foot fungi isn’t nice! As soon as you notice signs, mix together a few drops of tea tree oil, and a teaspoon of olive oil. Soak a cotton ball in the mixture and apply to affected area pressing it on gently but firmly so the liquid comes out. Let this dry naturally. Alternatively, you can place 4-5 drops of tea tree oil in enough water to soak your feet in, and do that for 15-20 minutes. Both treatments should be done morning and evening.
