Washer and Dryer Sheets

by Andrea Butje on March 13, 2012

Essential oil washer and dryer sheetsI first discovered using essential oil washer and dryer sheets when a friend stayed at our house while we were away.

She used her own scented laundry detergent in the washing machine. When I got home and started to do my own laundry, the machine smelled like a synthetic chemical detergent. (I wondered if we could still be friends!)

It occurred to me to add some essential oil to a wash cloth and run the washer without any clothes. I added drops of Lemon and Siberian Fir essential oils to a wash cloth and ran the machine (I’ll never admit how many drops of essential oil I used). It worked!

I realized I could add a damp wash cloth with essential oils to the dryer as well, and now I use my essential oil washer and dryer sheets regularly when I do laundry.

Here are a few recipes I love!

Sweet Tart

5 drops Lemon (Citrus limon)
5 drops Orange (Citrus sinensis)
5 drops Lime (Citrus aurantifolia)

Fresh Forest

5 drops Siberian Fir (Abies sibirica)
5 drops Black Spruce (Picea mariana)
5 drops White Pine (Pinus strobus)

Lavender Flower

14 drops Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
1 drop Neroli (Citrus aurantium var. amara)
