Shipping to United States: Free

What do you do when that feeling of anxiety hits? How does it affect you? Anxiety feels different to everybody! But the common theme with anxiety is that ANXIETY LIES! It tells you you are not safe, that you can not handle the situation you are in so you better run/flee and hunker down to keep yourself safe.
What if you had some tools to help you when that surge of adrenaline hits you?
What if you could distract your mind and break the fight or flight cycle?

As a person with anxiety myself and watching my kids struggle with it, I have been inspired to develop these tools.

I am not a therapist and these tools aren't meant to take the place of professional help if you need it. But if you are dealing with generalized anxiety disorder or are in treatment for your anxiety these tools just might be able to help you overcome and/or be able to cope with your anxiety.

There are 3 types of cards.
1. Centering/grounding/distraction cards. There are 18 techniques that you can use to distract your mind when anxiety tries to take over.
2. Affirmation cards that are focused on not letting your anxiety control you. These are words you can say to yourself when you begin to feel anxiety. There are 10 affirmations.
3. Breath cards, there are 9 breathing exercises that allow you to slow down, breathe and break the cycle.

I have included a green LIME & EUCALYPTUS essential oil dough in this kit, but if you would like a different scent or color of dough in your bag, just message me. I can substitute, no problem.
You can use this dough to distract yourself when feeling anxious. Paying attention to sensory input (feel and smell) is a great distraction technique!

All of these are contained in a small cotton bag that makes it easy for you to keep them with you.

Are there specific words that would help you? Just message me and I will be happy to customize any of the decks for you.

Dough should be used with care around little ones under 3, it is a choking hazard.

Frequently Asked Questions

Wholesale availability

Yes! I do both wholesale and bulk discounts.

The 2 oz tins make wonderful client gifts, wedding favors, party favors, gift bag additions and table decorations. I will be happy to work with you on custom labels.
Choose your scent, your color. Make it truly your own.
Discounts available on bulk purchases.

Can you make a special blend just for me?

Absolutely! I love to do custom blends and/or labels.

There is a problem with my order, can I contact you?

I absolutely want to know if there was a problem that occurred in shipping or if I have made a mistake (it happens)...
please, if you have any questions, concerns or problems with your order, contact me and I will make it right. I want you to love every single thing you buy from DoughForIt.

I love my dough, how can I make it last?

Store it in an airtight container, in a cool location.

If it begins for feel drier, a drop of water worked into it will refresh it.

If you leave it out and it gets "crusty", cut off the "crusty" part, throw it away and work a drop of water into the remaining dough.

You can probably expect about an average 5-6 month life for your dough (depending on several factors). After about 6 months the texture of the dough will begin to change.

Are essential oils always safe for everyone?

Some people might have sensitivities to certain essential oils.
Not all essential oils are safe for babies, children or women who are pregnant or nursing. You should check on essential oil safety if you have any specific questions about your situation.
DoughForIt isn't responsible for knowing your situation, please be informed.
If you have itching, burning or redness after use of a product you may have an allergy/sensitivity and should stop use.

Are essential oils proven to work?

Interesting question, essential oils have been used for thousands of years, but as far as modern day scientific studies go, it's cloudy.
There have been many, many studies done, but the FDA does not standardize essential oils and does not recognize any claims made about essential oils as valid. Therefore, all claims made about the properties of essential oils are considered educational or opinion. They are not meant to stand in for medical advice or intended to treat, cure or prevent any illness or condition.
Essentail oils can be part of a healthy lifestyle, but DoughForIt does not suggest that they replace a doctor visit or medical advice.

Since the dough is all nontoxic can I let my baby or toddler play?

Any dough is a choking hazard for little ones under 3. They just don't know not to put it in their mouths (since it smells so good), and if they take a large bite, it can become lodged in their throat.
DoughForIt dough has a high concentration of salt and would taste very bad! In itself it's not toxic, but is not intended for consumption and should not be eaten.
Not all essential oils are safe for babies or toddlers.
It is best to just keep DoughForIt dough out of reach of little ones.

Is the dough gluten free?

The dough contains wheat flour

It is not gluten free.

I love the word imprint, will it stay in the dough?

No. The dough is imprinted with a word to make it special for the first time it’s opened. After you squish the dough, the word will be gone and won’t come back automatically.

How long can I store the dough before I use it or give it as a gift?

I recommend using the dough within 8-10 weeks at the longest. I don’t recommend long term storage before use.

Bought this as a gift. My brother loved it!!!

Love this item! Thanks so much!

Items arrived quickly! Helpful seller. Will be a repeat buyer! Thanks

Got this kit for my daughter. I talked with the owner a few times on what would be best for her and she customized my order. Gave everything to my daughter and she said that she thinks that some of it is exactly what she needs for her newly diagnosed anxiety. We are still figuring out what helps her but we both feel that this kit is super helpful already.
