Wool Dryer Balls

Wool Dryer Balls

Ditch the toxic dryer sheets!  Switch dryer sheets for something natural and chemical free. Wool dryer balls dry and soften your clothes faster, without using chemically loaded dryer sheets or fabric softener.

Fabric softeners and dryer sheets contain petroleum-based toxins and unnatural fragrances. The toxic ingredients in these products may cause harm to the skin, and their synthetic fragrances could be a trigger for allergic reactions. Not to mention, the ingredients found in chemical softeners and dryer sheets are not environmentally friendly and can be quite harmful.

Normally, fabric sticks together in the dryer which can slow down the drying process.  When you add dryer balls to your load, the balls will lift and separate your clothing, discouraging bunching and clinging.  They also help to move heat evenly throughout your clothes which can reduce drying time.

Another benefit of wool dryer balls is that you can infuse them with your essential oils!  Just place 5-7 drops of your favorite essential oil on each ball to gently infuse your laundry with a fresh scent free of synthetic perfumes.

Wool dryer balls

My favorite oils to use with dryer balls are Purification, Citrus Fresh, Lemon and Lavender.  Here are some things to keep in mind:

  1. Most dryer ball sets come in packages of 3 or 4.  I have found best results using 6-8 balls.  Young Living sells dryer balls but you can buy them anywhere.  I got mine from Amazon.
  2. Balls need to be replaced approximately every 1,000 loads.
  3. For best results, put essential oils on the wool dryer balls when there is about 10-20 minutes left in the cycle.  However, I’m way too impatient and absent minded to do that.  So I put them in the dryer at the very beginning and am very happy with the results.
  4. Some people like to also put a safety pin in each dryer ball to help prevent static cling.  I’ve never had to do that and haven’t had a problem with static.  But in case you do, try the safety pin trick.

Thieves® Automatic Dishwasher Powder

Thieves® Automatic Dishwasher Powder

With naturally derived ingredients, Thieves® Automatic Dishwashing Powder is ultraconcentrated and made with a proprietary blend of biodegradable cleansing agents and enzymes.   This dishwashing  powder effectively cleans your dishes without harsh chemicals, dyes, or synthetics allowing dishes to come out clean and free of any chemical taste or food particles.
Thieves Automatic Dishwasher Powder combines naturally derived saponins from soapberries with biodegradable enzymes and essential oils for a superior cleaning system.  Soapberries—also called soap nuts—are wild-harvested botanicals that contain saponins, which are plant-based cleaning agents that help remove grime, grease, and food particles from dishes. Since they produce soap with few suds, soapberries are perfect for modern automatic dishwashers.
In addition to the proprietary combination of Thieves, Lemongrass, and Orange essential oils, Thieves Automatic Dishwasher Powder provides protease enzymes that help remove proteins and amylase enzymes that help remove fats, including grease and oil that tend to cling to dishes.

Thieves® Essential Oil Blend

Thieves® Essential Oil Blend

topical aromatic

Thieves essential oil is for use aromatically and topically while Thieves Vitality essential oil is dietary and therefore can be ingested.  Both bottles contain the same essential oil and differ only in the way they are labeled.  The designation of the two products allows you to share all the ways to use essential oils in the correct and FDA approved way.

Cleaning with bleach and other harsh chemicals make my eyes water and my nostrils burn.  And if it’s doing that to me, imaging what it’s doing to my pets or kids!! No thanks.  I’d much rather clean with Thieves that smells more like fall baking than harsh cleaning formulas.

Thieves® essential oil packs incredible cleaning power and is a combination of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils for an aromatic blend that fills any space with a rich, spicy aroma. Inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated a special aromatic combination composed of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals used while robbing the dead and dying, Thieves is one of Young Living’s most popular products.

As one of our most popular products, it’s no wonder that Thieves essential oil blend is included in so many of our home cleaning and personal care products.
