Selecting the perfect essential oils for your homemade laundry detergent is all about personal preference. Consider the mood or atmosphere you'd like to create with your freshly laundered clothes. Here are a few popular scent combinations to inspire you:

Invigorating: Eucalyptus, lemon, and rosemary

Soothing: Lavender, chamomile, and bergamot

Don't be afraid to experiment with different combinations of Delune's Pure Essential Oils to find your perfect laundry detergent scent.

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Grate the bar of unscented castile soap using a cheese grater. Place the grated soap in your large mixing bowl.

  2. Add 1 cup of washing soda and 1 cup of borax to the grated soap in the mixing bowl.

  3. Choose your Delune's Pure Essential Oils and add 20-30 drops to the mixture. If you're using a blend of oils, divide the total number of drops between them. For example, if you're using three oils, you might add 7-10 drops of each.

  4. Mix the ingredients thoroughly, ensuring the essential oils are evenly distributed throughout the mixture.

  5. Transfer your homemade laundry detergent to an airtight container for storage.

Tips for Usage and Application:

  • Use 1-2 tablespoons of your homemade laundry detergent per load, depending on the size and soil level of your laundry.
  • For an extra boost of freshness, add a few drops of your chosen Delune's Pure Essential Oils to a wool dryer ball and toss it in the dryer with your clothes.
  • Store your homemade laundry detergent in a cool, dry place to maintain its potency and freshness.

Safety Precautions:

  • Keep the homemade laundry detergent out of reach of children and pets.
  • Avoid direct contact with eyes and skin.
  • Use caution when using essential oils around pregnant women or individuals with allergies.
