Washing Clothes in Aromatherapy Oils

It wasn’t something I ever gave thought to until a few years ago while shopping in a linen store where I purchased some beautiful sheets. The shop assistant introduced me to the aroma therapy oils for washing clothes and things. She assured me they work as well or better than regular washing powders or products, they require no softeners, and they add a nice aroma to your clothes.

As they were on special at the time they seemed like a bargain so I bought a bottle to try it. The one I chose was lavender with some other aromas added. Surprisingly it came with a small measuring cup, about the size of a small medicine glass. The instructions are to add 40 ml per wash. The formula has changed recently to the one listed below.

From a litre bottle it meant about a six months’ supply. The cost was around $Au14.00 and compared to a regular washing product that was then being used this was cheap. There was no other additive required and the miracle is that it washes brilliantly.

Before long my sister was also using it along with my daughter and son. They all consider it a wonderful product. That’s when I decided to look into it further and see what made it so good.

The ingredients comprise:

15-20% non-ionic Surfantants (plant derived). These compounds lower the surface tension between 2 liquids or a liquid and a solid. That explains the power within it because anything on the surface of the cloth is easily removed through this process.

13-30% soap

5-15% Anionic Surfantants (plant derived)

5-15% alcohol

<5% enzymes

5% orange oil

0.5% fragrane

<1.5% fragrance oils

0.04 preservative

This is a simple combination of clever ingredients to use to enhance white sheets and fabrics is boosted by enzymes to improve cleaning performance. It is grey water compatible and there are 40 washes per bottle. The packaging is better for the environment because of less CO2 emissions from reduced transportation, less plastic, and cardboard packaging.

This information is taken from the supplier’s web site for accuracy. All up a great product and one that has many health benefits.
