Easy DIY Laundry Scents

It doesn't matter how you feel about doing laundry, almost everyone loves to have fresh smelling clothes. I know this because if you go into your local store down the laundry aisle there are endless options of products created to give your clothes some kind of smell everything from lavender blossoms to shimmer. But at what cost? The truth is, most of these commercial laundry scents contain so many chemicals. This is the main reason that I started making my own laundry scents and its waaayyy easy. In addition to making my home a bit safer, I have saved so much money. So check out this easy recipe.

Here's what you will need:

  • Coarse Sea Salt (1 lb.)

  • Fine Sea Salt (1/2 lb.)

  • Baking Soda (2 cups)

  • Your favorite fragrance oil ( I use Nature's Oil and will put the link at the bottom)

  • Container or small bucket

  • Something to scoop it out ( I use a 1/4 cup from one of those measuring cup sets)


Mix well the salts and baking soda together then add your fragrance oil. Stir it up and add some more oil then stir it up again to make sure your oil is evenly distributed. In total, I usually use about 2 teaspoons of fragrance oil for this amount. Feel free to use more or less depending on your preference. That's it! I use a scoop for each regular load of clothes and 2 scoops for things like comforters and curtains. You don't have to make this much, adjust the recipe for your needs.

Now wasn't that easy? Not only have you made your own laundry scents but you have just reduced the amount of harmful chemicals that you are exposed to and saved money!
