Glitter Jars

on November 20, 2013

Happy Wednesday!

I’ve seen Glitter Jars all over Pinterest, which are mostly made for and used by children to help calm and ease anxiety. I never thought that it could have the same effect on adults.

With a few ingredients you could make your very own. When you’re feeling stressed, anxious, or thinking about self harming,  shake the jar and watch the glitter settle. Give your mind something else to focus on after your initial freak-out to help the emotion pass.

  • 1 jar or bottle (with lid/cap)
  • 1/10 vegetable oil
  • 9/10 water
  • lots of glitter
  • food coloring

Add the water and vegetable oil together. Add a few drops of food coloring and all of the glitter. Put the lid on and shake it.

Keep calm and carry on!
