The air tight jar I used was from Target or Woolworths.

I didn't have a mixing bowl, so I used the base of our water purifier.

Add four cups of Epsom Salts.

Mix both dry ingredients together.

eco laundry booster - lemon and tea tree eo

You can use any Essential Oils you like. I picked Lemon for its fresh smell and brightening properties and Tea Tree for its antibacterial properties. 

eco laundry booster - stir and sit

I have since found out that letting the booster sit overnight helps the oil to distribute and dry out so it does not go into the jar wet.

This eco laundry booster lasted me months and I wash nearly every day! (We have a new baby, so lots of washing!)

I would love to know what you think of this eco laundry booster and if you used different oils.
