Make Play Dough scented with Body Wash
This post contains affiliate links. See our full disclosure.
We’ve got a ton of body wash collecting dust in our cupboard. They come in as gifts, samples, collected from hotel stays…and they are definitely used…but today, we made dough! This dough can use any scent of body wash, although different brands may change the dough’s consistency. We trialed two recipes with this dough and came up with a soft, moldable, scented dough that we loved!
For our dough, we used Bath and Body Works Velvet Sugar
and Bath & Body Works Beautiful Day
(which has a great apple-y scent).
Body Wash Sensory Play Dough Recipe
Time to play! The body wash gives these doughs a great scent. Many dough recipes that have salt lose the scent. This recipe seems to hold it’s scent for a while after playing.
The pink dough (made with flour) was much more resistive and a greater workout for the hand muscles compared to the green (baby powder) dough. If you’re looking for hand strengthening, the pink really worked those intrinsic muscles!

Use your scented dough to make cookies with a great scent. We made pink and green cookies (and sneak peeked them on our Instagram account!)
