What You’ll Need

What to Do

Begin by gathering your materials.

How to make slime without borax (with lavender essential oil)

Pour the entire bottle of school glue into your bowl. Squeeze a few drops of food coloring and a few drops of essential oil (we used lavender) into the glue and mix thoroughly with your popsicle stick.

Next, fill your empty glue bottle with liquid starch and pour it into your glue/food coloring/essential oil mixture.

Keep mixing with your popsicle stick until combined. You may notice some liquid starch still in the bowl. That’s okay.

We noticed the slime didn’t always absorb all of the liquid starch. Once your slime is mostly one glob, knead it a bit (for a minute or two) and then take your bowl of slime to the sink and add some water to rinse your slime.

We rinsed our slime several times and then kneaded it again for about a minute or so until it felt like your typical slime – sticks together, not runny or sticky. Note: We’ve made slime with both essential oils and plain and we noticed that when we added essential oils, after rinsing the slime, it got SUPER sticky for about 20-30 seconds but we just kept kneading it in our hands.

Just when you feel like all hope is gone and your slime is beyond hope, the stickiness will disappear and you will be left with the perfect slime (and the added bonus of that wonderful lavender scent thanks to the essential oil added).

Once our slime was made, it was time to play! The children had fun pressing different toobs into the slime and seeing their indentations, cutting the slime with scissors, and using cookie cutters to make different shapes. They played with their slime for several hours, took a break for lunch, and then went right back to it until just about dinnertime.
