Palmarosa and Lemon for your Laundry

I used to use conventional dryer sheets or fabric softeners because I equated the floral scent to mean my clothes were freshly clean.

I was surprised to learn that these things have ingredients that may be irritants or carcinogens (aka bad stuff). And after I started making non toxic replacements like essential oils on dryer balls, my skin had less breakouts! Go figure.

I like Palmarosa + Lemon on my dryer balls because it’s citrusy and floral all together. My clothes smell like spring 😊.

Fun fact: Once known as Turkish geranium oil or Indian geranium oil, palmarosa was used for centuries by the Turks to adulterate the more costly Turkish rose oil 😏.
