The following essential oils are the ones that I recommend using in your washing machine: Lemon Essential Oil. Lemon is an excellent oil to clean with! Red Mandarin Essential Oil. Eucalyptus Essential Oil. Tea Tree Essential Oil. Orange Essential Oil. Oregano Essential Oil. Geranium Essential Oil! Lavender Essential.
How to Use Essential Oils in Your Laundry. Put a few drops of essential oil in a bottle of unscented laundry detergent to add a fresh scent in the wash. Add 20 to 30 drops of essential oil to 1 gallon of white vinegar to make your own fabric softener. Sprinkle two or three drops of essential oil on a white cotton cloth.
Also in the laundry, essential oils may be added to a load of clothes in the washing machine, or a few drops put on a cotton cloth and added to the dryer for scent .
