About the Women Behind Aroma Dough®: Diane and Maryanne
Diane and Maryanne invented Aroma Dough® for their own children who suffered from ADHD and life-threatening peanut allergies back in 1992. They initially started mixing up batches of it in their garages and selling them in tubs at craft shows. But when they did research on aromatherapy and the olfactory benefits for children both in their moods and in sensory and fine motor development and the dangers of a wheat based diet, they knew this product was a winner. Going forward, they fine-tuned their secret recipe and put together a fully operational manufacturing plant selling nationwide as well as internationally through specialty toy shops and big name stores such as Price Club, Sam’s Wholesale Clubs The Right Start Catalog and Discovery Toys.
Their Made in the U.S.A. production philosophy captured the attention of parents who want quality products for their children. After much research on aromatherapy and the benefits to children (especially those with special needs such as Celiac's Disease, ADHD, Autism, Tourette's Syndrome), Diane and Maryanne did lots of testing to come up with "kid approved" natural aromas.
Aroma Dough® is the Original leader in aroma based playdough, having started in 1992. The company is 22 years old and has been previewed in Redbook Magazine, American Baby Magazine and Parenting Special Needs Magazine and countless mommy blogs, as well as being given the product "Seal of Approval" Award. Although their children are now grown, they continue their mission to bring gluten-free, wheat-free, nut free playdough to the other millions of children around the world who can benefit from the olfactory advantages of Aroma Dough® .
