Laundry the Healthy Version!


My husband and I have decided to eliminate chemicals from our home! We are living a chemical free lifestyle!! Eliminating toxins from your home is very important... many of these toxins cause varies diseases such as cancer!

I have decided to start making my own laundry detergent... I know which ingredients are in my detergent and it is all natural!


Use between 1/4c - 1/2c per load (as you would normally use liquid detergent)


Liquid Detergent recipe:

1 c castile Soap

1 c baking Soda

1/3 c kosher salt (coarse)

11/2 gallon of hot water

10 drops On Guard EO

10 drops Citrus Bliss EO

Mix all ingredients in a large bucket... This recipe should last you about 2-3 months!

Shake before each use!



These dryer balls are a natural alternative to fabric softener & dryer sheets.

Fabric softeners come in all different shapes and sizes, and have scents that range anywhere from “Tropical Breeze” to “Lavender.”

Did you know that most lavender-scented fabric softeners actually contains no lavender—only chemicals that have been blended to give you an impression that you are smelling the real deal?

Substituting these chemically-driven fabric softeners for an all-natural, toxic-free alternative is much easier and more affordable than you might think.

​I purchased these from Amazon... You can also purchase from a Wholefood store.

Adding 2–3 drops of essential oil per ball should last a few loads. Add more drops if you would like a stronger scent.

Fun Laundry Tips:

  • Crumple up aluminum foil into a ball and toss it in the dryer with the wet laundry to get rid of static cling.

  • For an even extra burst of essential oils in your clothing, place a wash cloth with a few drops of essential oil into your dryer. It will come out smelling beautiful!

  • Add a few drops of Lemon essential oil to your wash cycle to help remove grease and oil from fabrics. For more handy ideas, recipes, and tips, check the doTERRA blog.
