Essential Oil Safety - important information for newbies to EO

  1. Here is a dryer sheet recipe. Just one simple suggestion to get you started once you have gained your everyday living essential oils.
      Not only is this laundry solution healthier, it is also awesomely eco-friendly. For only pennies, you'll have dryer sheets that can be used over and over and over again. What makes these dryer sheets better than their store-bought counterparts is they can be personalized with your favorite scent and are free of any toxic additives. Along with leaving your clothes feeling soft and fresh, they'll smell clean and ready for wear.
    And once you try them, you'll wonder why you never made them from scratch in the first place.

    What You'll Need:

    • 1/2 cup of vinegar
    • 8 drops Purification (a Young Living EO blend) or other essential oil
    • Sealable container
    • Cotton cloths


    1. Start by cutting your cotton cloths into smaller sections. I used inexpensive dish towels from the dollar store, but old tee shirts or linens would work wonderfully too.
    2. Put the above ingredients into the sealable container.  Glass is recommended if using any of the citrus based oils.  We love the canning jars wrapped with decorative duct tape to help prevent scattered glass if dropped.
    3. Place the cut cotton cloths into the solution.
    4. As needed, grab a cloth in the container, squeeze out excess liquid and place in dryer with clothes.
    5. When done, place cloth back into container. Eco-friendly and you can tell that you'll only need a couple of cloths
    6. Little tidbit of helpful safety information.  When using any dryer sheets, particularly store bought, it is good to wash the residue off your lint trap on a regular basis.  Make sure it is well dry before using again.  The residue build up causes the lint trap to be less effective which leads to lint build up inside the dryer and exhaust.  This lint build up can be a fire hazard, so regular maintenance is essential.
