DIY: laundry detergent

For the past couple months my Facebook feed had become full of Young Living Essential Oil posts. People loving them for their families and using them for all sorts of things.  A close friend of mine invited me to her place for an information 101 night and it really got me thinking that I would love to introduce these into my home.  Partly for the diffuser and lovely smells, as I don’t burn candles much anymore and because I was intrigued if they could really help support my families immune system and other areas in our life.


One thing I’ve been most excited about was being able to make laundry detergent! My friend had made some and has loved it.  Hubby looked up the ingredients that I was using and they are all found in current detergents (i.e.: tide) and from we have read and researched safe for our hE machines.

I also am so excited to have purchased wool dryer balls which will help decrease dryer time and I can add a couple drops do essential oils to make things smell nice too.
