Easy Aromatherapy Dryer Sheet Recipe

Aromatherapy Dryer SheetsIntroduction:
Making and using your own essential oil dryer sheets is a gentle way to naturally fragrance your laundry. By using cotton remnants and essential oils, you save on the cost of commercial dryer sheets, and you avoid the synthetics that they contain.

These sheets will not soften your clothes. For softer clothes, try the easy Fabric Softener Recipe.


  • Scraps of Natural or White Cotton Fabric
    An old, cut-up t-shirt will be fine. The size of your scraps isn't too important. An ideal size is approximately 5"x5"
  • 5 drops Essential Oil

Scatter 1-4 drops of essential oil onto a scrap of cotton frabric. Place the sheet into the dryer with your laundry and dry your clothes as you normally would. After the dryer cycle has finished, your laundry should have the faint aroma of your chosen essential oils.


  • Avoid using scraps or colored fabric, especially when washing light color loads.
  • Stick to using clear and pale colored essential oils with thin viscosity (not thick or sticky). The Essential Oil Profiles contained in the Essential Oil Profile area display the typical color and lists the consistency of each oil.
  • Do not use more than 1-4 drops of essential oils. Remember that essential oils are flammable.
