I am so excited to share my 2 Ingredient DIY Laundry Scent Booster and Softener recipe! If you are a long time reader, then you know that I have been making most of my own laundry detergents, fabric softeners, dryer sheets, and stain removers for quite a while now. You can find them all on my Home Tips Page by the way!
This scent booster will not only leave your laundry smelling super fresh, but will also soften it as well. All you need is kosher salt and essential oils. This recipe honestly is the easiest thing you could possibly make. The salt works to soften your water and clothes while the essential oils provide a soft clean scent and help lift away grime and dirt. You can find my favorite Lavender Essential Oil HERE!
Start by adding a 3lb. box of kosher salt (you can substitute with epsom salt or table salt) to a large bowl or container.
Next, add 20-25 drops of lavender essential oil. You could use lemon, lemongrass or peppermint instead if you don’t love lavender.
Whisk together, making sure to spread the oils throughout the salt.
Now place your laundry scent booster and softener in an airtight container. I love large Half Gallon Mason Jars for storing mine. To use in your laundry, simply add 1/2 cup of your homemade scent booster to your laundry and wash as usual. This formula is safe for HE washers, and the essential oils will not come out of your dryer smelling super strong, it will simply give your laundry a boost in scent. It also doesn’t smell girly, just fresh and soft!
