Besides fresh-smelling laundry, dryer balls can quicken drying times by around 25% (varies on your dryer, clothes, and the amount of balls you use). Besides being super-friendly to Mother Earth, it’s good for the wallet. Unless you’re Warren Buffet, you like to save money, right? Even better, dryer balls are also non-toxic and can be scented with your favorite essential oil. Learn how to make you own dryer balls here.
Hi there! The reason that you need to use dark bottles is because of the Essential Oils that go into the recipes. Essential Oils are AMAZING, but really sensitive to light. Using a dark colored glass bottle or jar is what helps to keep them safe. If you do use something that is clear make sure to store it in a cool, dry, and dark place so that it isn’t heated and definitely no direct sunlight! Also, if you use plastic the essential oils will eventually eat away at the plastic because they are potent. When I use a plastic container I only use it once. You can find storage bottles and supplies at abundanthealth4u.com
I just made the Balancing Perfume Blend. I then multiplied by four and added one ounce Distilled Water and one ounce Witch Hazel to a two ounce dark glass spray bottle. Just shake and spray and you have an instant Room Fragrance Spray. I also made the Luxurious Exfoliating Body Scrub. It smelled heavenly and left my skin super soft. I’m thinking of using the olive oil and salt blend as a base in a jar by the tub and customizing it to my needs. Then I can add specific blends to my silver dollar sized scrub like Muscle Love Essential Oil Blend if I have sore muscles, or a headache blend when my head hurts. I could add Anti-Fungal Blend for Athlete’s Foot, etc… The possibilities are endless. Thanks for inspiring me!

This is a nice looking unit that blends with any decor. We needed something to add humidity to our dry Colorado air and to diffuse essential oils that aid in sleeping. After a week of use, I would say...so far, so good! Our sinuses feel less dry and sleep has been more restful, even though my husband has sleep apnea and often struggles with his CPAP.
