Where do you find cranberry and coconut oil? Is that one type of oil or two kinds and where can I get it? Thanks!

Hi Kelly, they are 2 different kinds of oils. Maybe somewhere like the body shop would be a good place to start.

This is such a great idea! Never before thought of putting sparkles in playdough, but so much fun for Christmas (or anytime)!!

Cranberry scented oil sounds so good. Haven't come across it here in Australia, will have to keep an eye out for it.
