Essential Oils and Laundry: DIY Dryer Sheets & Linen Spray

Essential Oils and Laundry

Here at Plant Therapy, we’re always looking for new ways to help everyone live healthier, more natural lives. We’re always working on the latest naturally derived products and recipes that you can use in your everyday life. And let’s be real, one of the most common chores we all share is laundry.  And because it’s summertime… there is a lot of laundry.

We’re here to bring you all the DIY goods so you can care for your clothes naturally. Our DIY recipes contain super affordable, easily obtainable ingredients that are not only natural, but great for your family! The fresh and cleansing essential oils of Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Ho Wood, Lavender Fine, and Balm Mint Bush make these recipes the perfect solution for all your laundry needs.

Tea Tree essential oil from plant therapy

While you probably already have a favorite natural and gentle detergent you pick up at the store,  did you know you can have an affordable, do-it-yourself dryer sheet to help soften up your laundry and help remove static? Vinegar acts as a natural fabric softener without leaving behind a residue or overpowering aroma. The addition of Tea Tree and Eucalyptus helps freshen and deodorize every load laundry. All you need are some lightweight strips of cotton fabric to act as the dryer sheets and you’ll be in business!

And don’t forget the need for an affordable linen spray to help freshen up blankets and curtains before monthly washes. The combination of Lavender and Ho Wood is soft and calming while Balm Mint Bush adds a burst of cool freshness. Simply spritz and enjoy the amazing aromatherapy benefits of these oils.

  1. I was wondering for the dryer sheets if I could use different oils to give things different smells? Like can I take germ destroyer and throw my kids clothes in before school to help with cold season? Thanks!

    1. Yes! Keep in mind that some oils have a color or mild scent that might not lend itself well to laundry. But you can absolutely mix it up.

  2. This is exciting! I’ve been looking to make a DIY all-natural linen spray. Thank you so much for sharing this! My mind is already working up ideas for the different calming and relaxing scents to use on pillow and bedding. I love the idea for the dryer sheets as well. It’s amazing what can be created with nature. Thank you! ♥
