Replace those Toxic Dryer Sheet NOW!

Easy, safe effective essential oil solution makes a big difference

TV commercials certainly promote the warm, fuzzy feeling of laundry that was dried with dryer sheets and millions of people – even health conscious ones – routinely use them on their clothes, their bed linens and those of their children. (ouch 😒)

It’s time to realize that those dryer sheets are very toxic. It was found that emissions from dryer vents include seven hazardous air pollutants and 25 volatile organic compounds (VOCs). This includes  acetaldehyde (synthetic fragrance) and benzene which are not safe at any level. Headaches, asthma and, hormone imbalances can all result from exposure to your typical dryer sheet. This often hidden toxic source is easily eliminated by replacing the dryer sheets with inexpensive wool dryer balls infused with whatever essential oil will provide the scent or purpose you’d like. Here’s how simple it is to make the swap

  1. Purchase wool dryer balls $8.00-$16.00 on Amazon)
  2. Add 2-3 drops any of the following essential oils (or your own choice) to each ball 
    1. Lavender (great for sheets)
    2. Citrus (wild orange, lemon, lemongrass -clean and uplifting)
    3. Ylang ylang (very floral – helps with depression and opening the heart)
    4. doTERRA purify (great for just washed smelly, sweaty clothes or shoes)
    5. doTERRA Citrus Bliss (great blend of citrus that smells yummy and uplifts the spirit)   
  3. Place in dryer with your wet clothes. 

This is such a simple intervention to help detox your home environment. Try and let me know what you think!
