Decrease Appetite with This DIY Glitter Putty

Who doesn’t love good food? Gym trainers and coaches always say that 80% of staying fit is done in the kitchen and not through burning the calories. That’s easy for them to say because they don’t have my appetite! If you’re like me, who tries to stay fit and healthy but is struggling to decrease your appetite, this glitter putty recipe is perfect for you!

Keep it in your bag, in the fridge, or in the pantry beside your favorite chips, so you can reach for your putty instead. With your putty and your self-control in hand, who knew reaching your fitness goals would be so easy?


Flour is the base for this recipe. It absorbs the liquids and helps with the firmer consistency.

Carrier Oil

A Carrier oil is needed in this recipe to dilute the essential oil blend. Some examples of a carrier oil include Almond Oil, Canola Oil, or Coconut Oil, all of which would work best for the scent

Fit Essential Oil Blend

Fit Essential Oil Blend is a combination of Grapefruit, Spearmint, Lavender Essential Oils. It is known for its hunger curbing attributes.


Glitter, which is optional, adds a fun twist to this recipe! You can make it a fun colored glitter, or just stick with the classic silver, it’s all in your court now!

This recipe is safe to use around children 2+.

Keep this putty out of the reach of your pets.

Never ingest any essential oil, even if it’s generally regarded as safe. For more information on why we don’t ingest essential oils, check out this blog post
