For the wash, some delicious fragrances are: lemon, lavender and orange. For a more exotic scent, use ylang-ylang or neroli. Adding marjoram, chamomile or orange blossom to a load of sleep clothes help aid in insomnia.
Or, try these:
For a fresh scent: For a floral scent: For a romantic scent:
Lavender Geramium Ylang-Ylang
Rosemary Palma Rosa Rose
Bergamont Neroli Jasmine
Pettigraine Bois de Rose Vervaine
To kill bacteria, dust mites and sick germs, add about 5 drops of tea tree oil or eucalyptus oil to the wash. I use these oils in my sheets and towels, and any other load I think needs it.
I like to buy my essential oils from Beeyoutiful. The quality and price cannot be beat!
All this talk about using lovely oils for the laundry makes me want to jump up and do several loads myself...well maybe not! ;)
