Adult play dough is here

Step aside colouring books. There’s a new player in town.

First there were adult colouring books and now, there’s play dough for big kids.

WA entrepreneur Alexandria Trichilo has created a range of play dough pots – Dough-Luxe – infused with essential oils, which are designed to help our stressful lives.

“I started making it for friends and family a year ago and the business evolved from there,” she told SBS.

Just like colouring-in, playing with play dough is said to be a form of mindfulness that helps us to be calm.

“The adult colouring book craze has proven a fantastic stress release for some, but many find it time-consuming and frustrating,” the 28-year-old told Perth Now.

“Play dough is small and mobile and perfect for your handbag or desk.”

There’s lavender for relaxation, wild orange and lemon for uplifting your mood, lemongrass oil for relieving headaches and eucalyptus for clearing the sinuses.
