mohdoh - Mouldable Aromatherapy
mohdoh is a clever combination of aromatherapy, colour therapy and play therapy. Suitable for both adults and children it is a great way to deal with everyday ailments without having to take endless medication or stimulants.
As the dough is manipulated (or played with) it releases essential oils which are absorbed into the body. People say that stroking an animal can help against stress ... well playing and moulding moudoh has the same affect, you don't have to think about it, you just play with it.
Its not a dough that you have to be artistic to use, its not for making shapes or animals out of, its to mould and massage. Whilst you are using the dough it can lower your stress levels as the squidgy feel has a calming soothing effect.
For each ailment there is a different moudoh:
How mohdoh works:
Aromatherapy treatments are effective in dealing with minor ailments, skin problems and in particular stress or emotional difficulties. It is a valuable preventative therapy which keeps us well balanced emotionally and physically, reducing the chances of a serious illness occurring.
All the essential oils used in mohdoh are blended by aromatherapy specialist Penny Price.
Through the use of play and arts and crafts techniques, chronic, mild and moderate psychological and emotional conditions can be alleviated. These conditions can cause behavioural problems and/or prevent children from realising their full potential.

Colour therapy is a holistic and non-intrusive form of healing, which introduces the optimum balance of colour energies into the human organism in order to promote harmony between the body, mind and spirit.
Colour has a profound effect on us on all levels; physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. If our energy centres (Chakras) become blocked or depleted, then our body cannot function properly and this, in turn, can lead to a variety of problems. Using the colours of the spectrum, colour therapy aims to balance and enhance our body's energy centres (Chakras) and also to help stimulate our body's own healing process.
The above sounds like a bit of hocus-pocus but it does actually work. Colour can effect your mood, I looked into it when I was studying art. Different smells can also effect your body and so experts use different blends to help cure or at least tone down different ailments.
The moudoh was quite tricky to get out of the pot from new, but once its out it easily moulds and you can roll it into a near on perfect ball! Its quite a tough dough and can make your hands ache after a while, it has a rubbery consistency that makes you wonder if it would bounce if you threw if on the floor (I won't try this as I haven't hoovered yet and my carpet is covered in dog hair).
The aromatherapy oils are only released as you play with the dough, its not overpowering nor do you end up with mucky or oily hands - I have been playing with the dough and then typed without having to wipe or wash my hands.
Storage: Store the dough in its airtight container in a cool, dark place. Return dough to the container after every use to ensure it stays fresh.
