THIS. This pisses me off so much! This is not “sweet” or “cute” I’ve had people do this to me before and literally all it dose it make it 100,000,000 times worse. Not only is that emotional black mail but it makes the person feel so guilty, which only makes them want to cut more. It’s not helpful when you do this to someone it’s stressful and it only creates a bigger problem.
Calming silk dough recipe
I’ve made a post about stress bottles (calm down bottles) and because I am a walking pinterest board, I decided to try this silk dough I found on pinterest. I made an ocean breeze kind.
It has an amazing calming effect with the scents and textures. I took two stressful trips to the store and I felt everything melt away after mixing and playing with this.
What you need:
-2 cups cornstarch ($.88 per box which yields roughly 5 cups)**
-1 cup cheap hair conditioner(I used Suave Ocean Breeze for $2 a bottle)**
-glitter and food color are optional
All you need to do is measure out your cornstarch into your mixing bowl and add your cup of shampoo.
Mix until it is smooth then add any extra stuff you want.
This will be great for disabilities or just making for fun! As someone who suffers from depression and acute anxiety, I am in love.
Since my calm down jar was a hit, and this is also pretty helpful, if you want to see more stress-remedy projects, let me know by liking/reblogging or messaging me here on tumblr!
**WANRING: if you have sensitive skin or sensitivity to scents, be careful in which products you use. Ocean Breeze was almost too strong for me.**
