13 Fun Slime Ideas13 Fun Slime Ideas

Last week Natures Garden had so much fun creating scented slime!  It was a day of slime making that I personally will never forget!  Today, let’s look at some fun slime ideas for all of the slime makers out.  Below, we are going to share some of our very favorite scented slimes using some of our most popular slime scents!  We will look at some of the key ingredients used in slime.  In addition, we will talk about some of the fun decorative things you can do with slime.  We also look at coloring options for slime making.

13 Fun Slime Ideas: A Basic Slime Recipe

Before we look at our 13 fun slime ideas or ways to jazz up your slime, let’s talk about the ingredients and some slime making basics.  First, you will need glue and shaving cream.  In addition, you will need borax and water.  Finally, the fun stuff!  You will need color, scent, and fragrance oil.

Creating the Borax SolutionA Basic Slime Recipe:  Creating the Borax Solution

First, you will need to create a borax solution.  In a bullet bottle, add 8 ounces of warm water.  Then, add 1/2 teaspoon of borax.  Place a disc lid on top, in the closed position.  Then, shake the bottle to mix the ingredients together.  Set this aside, for now, we will come back to it.

Mixing the Glue and Shaving CreamA Basic Slime Recipe:  Mixing the Glue and Shaving Cream

We found that we like adding shaving cream to ours to give our slime a nice fluffy look.  However, if you are using clear glue, you will not want to do this.  Your slime will not remain clear.  In deep mixing bowl, add one cup of Elmer’s Glue.  Then, add about two cups of shaving cream.  Use your hands to mix everything together.

Adding the Fragrance Oil and ColorA Basic Slime Recipe:  Adding the Fragrance Oil and Color

Now, we will add color and scent.  These two ingredients can be added right to the glue/shaving cream mixture.  Once you have added the scent and color, mix everything together.  When choosing a color you have a couple of options.  You can use either the FUN Soap Colorants or Da Bomb Soap Dyes.  When scenting your slime, you want to make sure you use a body safe fragrance oil and do not go over the maximum usage rate found on the IFRA certificate for that fragrance oil.  The IFRA certificate can be found in the description of each fragrance oil.

Adding the Borax Solution to the Other IngredientsA Basic Slime Recipe:  Adding the Borax Solution to the Other Ingredients

Now, you will need the borax solution you created.  Add a small amount of the borax solution to the bowl containing your glue mixture.  Then, mix everything together.  Continue to add small amounts of the borax solution and mixing until you have a fluffy slime consistency.  However, be careful not to add too much of the solution.  If you add too much, you slime will not stretch.  If you do not add enough, however, it will be too sticky.  Once you create your slime, you can package it in these jars and lids.

A Basic Slime Recipe: Decorating Your Slime

You have several options when it comes to decorations.  You can add glitter, slime charms, beads, and confetti.  The sky is the limit.  Below, we will show you some of the ways we decorated our slime to give it a fun twist.  We took into consideration the scent that we were using when creating the slime and had so much fun making scented slime!

Yummy Gummy Slime13 Fun Slime Ideas: Yummy Gummy Slime

First, we have the Yummy Gummy Slime.  This slime recipe uses Natures Garden’s Yummy Gummy Fragrance Oil.  So, what does the Yummy Gummy scent smell like?  If you guessed gummy bears you would be correct.  Keep reading for a little more about this scent.  This slime uses green glitter to color the clear glue slime.  In addition, we added gummy bear charms that pair perfectly with this fun candy aroma!  How did we make this slime?  We started with a basic slime recipe.  Then, we added the scent and some bright neon green glitter.  Once everything was mixed together, we added the adorable little gummy bears.

 Yummy Gummy Fragrance OilYummy Gummy Slime:  Yummy Gummy Fragrance Oil

Yummy Gummy fragrance oil is a Natures Garden original scent. These gummy candies are a favorite of so many.  This gummy candy is bursting with fruity flavor and goodness.  The top notes of this fragrance oil include orange, peach, and lemon.  Those top notes are followed by middle notes of coconut, raspberry, and grape that lead to base notes of plum, pear, and a sweet vanilla.

13 Fun Slime Ideas: Bacon Slime

Next, we have the bacon slime created at Natures Garden.  This slime was created using white glue and shaving cream.  It was then scented with bacon fragrance oil.  Once we created the slime, we divided our slime into three equal portions.  Each portion was placed into its own bowl.  Then, we colored our slime.  One of the three bowls was left uncolored.  One was colored with our red oxide FUN Soap Colorant.  To the third bowl, we added just a tiny bit of red oxide and a drop or two of the tomato red FUN Soap Colorant.  We mixed the colorant into each bowl, washing our hands in between mixing so we didn’t mix the colors.  Once we had the slime colored, we stretched the slime out and layered it.  Then, we placed it in the jar.

 Bacon Fragrance OilBacon Slime:  Bacon Fragrance Oil

So what does the bacon fragrance oil smell like?  Bacon, of course.    It smells just like the real thing.  Who doesn’t love bacon!

 

 

Blue Raspberry Slushie Slime13 Fun Slime Ideas: Blue Raspberry Slushie Slime

Now, we have a blue raspberry slushie slime recipe to talk about.  This is another slime that uses white glue and shaving cream.  Once we created the actual slime and added the blue raspberry scent, we added some sparkle.  How did we make this slime sparkle like an ice cold slushie?  We added a few teaspoons of the Diamond Dust mica pigment from Natures Garden.  We also added about 5 drops or so of the blue Da Bomb Soap Dye.  Once we had everything mixed together, we added some ice blue slime beads to give the slime some texture.

 Blue Raspberry Slushie Fragrance OilBlue Raspberry Slushie Slime:  Blue Raspberry Slushie Fragrance Oil

So, what does the Blue Raspberry Slushie Fragrance Oil smell like?  It smells like those super awesome blue raspberry sno cones that we all love so much.  This slushie scent is the aroma of fresh raspberries, sweet cotton candy, and the effervescence pop of crisp crushed ice.

 

Bunny Slime13 Fun Slime Ideas: Bunny Slime

This one is just in time for Easter.  Our Bunny Slime is scented with Easter Bunny Burps Fragrance Oil.  We also used both white glue and shaving cream for a nice fluffy slime.  We also added Natures Garden’s ultramarine violet FUN Soap Colorant to get a pretty pastel purple color that is perfect for Springtime!  Once we created our scented slime, we added pink, purple, and blue slime confetti hearts and topped added a bunny slime charm to the top of the jar.

 

 Easter Bunny Burps Fragrance OilBunny Slime:  Easter Bunny Burps Fragrance Oil

So, what does Easter Bunny Burps fragrance oil smell like?  Some might think an Easter Basket.  But, no, we wanted this scent to reflect any bunny’s lifestyle. This Natures Garden original scent is a vibrant blend of shimmering garden greens that lead to just a hint of fresh mint.  Then, a blend of spring flowers will hit you with green tones.  The scent is warmed with glowing notes of sandalwood and hints of musk to finish the scent.

Hot Fudge Brownie Slime13 Fun Slime Ideas: Hot Fudge Brownie Slime

So, next we have a hot fudge brownie slime.  This one not only looks AMAZING, but the scent is out of this world!  How did we make this slime?  This is another fluffy slime recipe using both white glue and shaving cream.  We scented it with Hot Fudge Brownies Fragrance Oil from Natures Garden.  Then, we colored about 2/3 of the slime with brown oxide and a small amount of black oxide FUN Soap Colorants to give it a chocolate color.  Finally, when placing it in our jar, we added the brown first, keep just a little bit of the brown to top the slime.  Once we added the white slime to the top we used that leftover brown to drizzle the top.  Of course, it wouldn’t be complete without a cherry charm on top.  We also added a chocolate bar charm.

 Hot Fudge Brownies Fragrance OilHot Fudge Brownie Slime:  Hot Fudge Brownies Fragrance Oil

Hot Fudge Brownies fragrance oil by Natures Garden is the aroma of scrumptious chocolate brownies smothered in hot fudge with a slight hint of warm vanilla.  Our customers love the Hot Fudge Brownies fragrance oil so much that they have made it one of our bestsellers!

Next, we have the Fruity Rings Slime.  This slime scent is quite possibly our most popular.  This slime is simply a fluffy white slime.  We then scented it with Natures Garden’s Fruity Rings Fragrance Oils.  Then, we added fruity rings slime charms.  We wanted it to look just like a bowl of cereal, so we kept it simple with this slime recipe.  While it is simple to make, it clearly looks totally fabulous and smells wonderful too.

So, what does Fruity Rings Fragrance Oil smell like?  It can be compared to the fruit flavored rings cereal that we all love so much!  This Natures Garden fragrance oil begins with the aromas of lemon rinds, lime, and grapefruit.  This leads to middle notes of lemongrass, lily, and verbena.  This fruity scent is finished notes of vanilla and sugar.

Mermaid Slime13 Fun Slime Ideas: Mermaid Slime

So, next we have our Mermaid Slime.  Of course, we had to scent it with the Mermaid Kisses Fragrance Oil.  Once we created a fluffy scented slime, we divided our slime into three.  We used neon pink, neon blue, and ultramarine violet FUN Soap Colorants to color them.  We didn’t need much of each colorant, just enough to give the slime pretty pastel colors.  Once the slime was colored, we stretched it, layered it, and pressed it into the jar.  We added some fun purple star slime confetti and purple slime beads.  Finally, we added a purple shell charm and mermaid fin.

 Mermaid Kisses Fragrance OilMermaid Slime: Mermaid Kisses Fragrance Oil

How to Make Scented Slime with Borax: Creating the Borax Solution

First, you are going to need to create your borax solution for this recipe. While it is the first thing you create for this recipe, it will be the last thing that you will add to your slime mixture. So, you will need to add a teaspoon of the borax to an 8 oz bullet bottle to start. Then, you will add eight ounces or cup of warm water to the bottle (you will want to fill the eight ounce bullet bottle completely without overfilling). Then, you will need to add the smooth disc lid to the bullet bottle. Now, you need to make sure the lid is closed and sealed tight.

How to Make Scented Slime with Borax: How Much Fragrance Can I Use?How to Make Scented Slime with Borax: How Much Fragrance Can I Use?

Once you’ve found your favorite fragrance oil for slime, you need to determine how much of the scented oil to add to your recipe. For this slime recipe, we would recommend that you use about 4 ml (about 5 grams) of fragrance oil. You can measure this amount using a disposable pipette. This will ensure that your amount of fragrance is within the maximum recommended amount to be body safe.

If you want to add even more fragrance to your slime recipe, then you will want to pay attention to the maximum usage rates. As you can see in the picture, the maximum use for lotions is provided. We would put slime in this category with lotion recipes as the slime would stay on your skin for longer periods of time. For our Bubble Gum Fragrance Oil, the maximum amount we could include would be 5% of the total recipe’s weight. So, in this slime recipe, you could a maximum 13 grams of fragrance. If you don’t have a craft scale to weigh this amount, you can easily use a food scale.

How to Make Scented Slime with Borax: How Do I Calculate the Amount of Fragrance Oil I Need?

If your chosen fragrance has a different suggested usage rate, you need to determine how much fragrance oil you plan to use. For this example, I will use 5% (which can be converted to 0.05). So, you need to weigh out your glue and shaving cream. You will simply take the weight of your slime and multiply by the percentage of fragrance oil that we suggest. We will use a cup of glue, which should weigh about 260 grams. So, you would multiply this weight by the suggested usage rate for this fragrance oil.

260 g x 0.05 = 13 g

This means that in this case, you will use 13 grams of fragrance oil.

Now that you have your colorants and fragrance oils pick out, you are ready to add them to your mixture. You can add in a drop or two of your colorant and mix everything together. Then, you can decide whether you need to add more color. Also, you can use a toothpick to add an amount that is even smaller than a drop. Just dip the toothpick into the colorant and swirl it into your mixture. Once you have a good color, you can add a body safe fragrance oil that you enjoy! Once these are both added, you can mix everything together and move on to the last step!

How to Make Scented Slime with Borax: Mixing Your SlimeHow to Make Scented Slime with Borax: Mixing Up Your Finished Slime

Now, you are ready to finish mixing your slime. So, you will need your mixture in the medium bowl and the borax solution from before. You will add about one tablespoon to start. Then, begin to mix your slime. We suggest that you use your hands to mix. If you’d like, you can wear disposable gloves while you mix in the borax solution. You will need to add another tablespoon of the borax solution and mix. You will want to continue going back and forth between adding borax and mixing until you reach the right consistency. If the mixture is too sticky, then continue to add more borax. However, you will want to avoid adding too much borax. If you add too much of the borax solution, your slime will be too stiff and not as stretchy. So, make sure you add only small amounts of the solution at a time.
