If you've ever been so anxious that you've maniacally knotted your own hair, shredded five napkins or repeatedly punched an unsuspecting throw pillow, we've got good news: There's now a less destructive way to use your hands to work through your tension.
Mohdoh--or, as we like to call it, Play-Doh for adults--is the great "squidgy" meeting of aromatherapy, tactile-play therapy and color therapy. Each of the nontoxic, vibrantly hued, moldable doughs ($8) is infused with lovely smelling essential oils that are, in turn, absorbed into your skin as you knead away.
The nine available scents all purport to relieve various ailments--
lack of focus. And though we didn't notice a major difference in results among the varietals, the act of massaging the stuff was undoubtedly therapeutic.
The company suggests using Mohdoh for up to ten minutes at a time, but we found ourselves wanting to play with it pretty much constantly--at our desks, in meetings and while watching television.
After all, even if the
Slim didn't overtly stop our sweets cravings, it did keep us occupied enough to avoid reaching for a second brownie.
