Quick and Easy In-Wash Scent Boosters
$1 to $25
You Will Need...
- Epsom salts
- Essential oil or body safe fragrance oils
- Airtight container with lid
Step by Step Instructions
Start by pouring your Epsom salts into a glass or plastic airtight container. I find it is best to keep track of how many cups I am using at a time, that way I know the ratio of Epsom salts to essential oil for future projects.
Add your essential oil or body safe fragrance oil drop by drop. For a cup and a half of Epsom salts I added 6 drops of essential oil.
Close your container and shake well to distribute the oils. I typically shake my container for about two minutes.
That’s it, you’re done. To use, simply pour anywhere from 1/8 – 1/4 cup into your washer at the beginning of each load.
For this project, I used a ‘relaxing’ essential oil blend purchased from Canwax. For more, please visit my blog at http://livelaughloveblogforever.wordpress.com
