There’s no reason to miss out on having wonderful smelling laundry after switching to Smart Sheep Wool Dryer Balls. In fact, by using essential oils, you can not only have laundry that smells amazing, you can actually switch up scents and enjoy a multitude of therapeutic aromas from your laundry. Here are some tips for how to use essential oils for dryer balls:
Selecting Your Oils

Once you have selected a brand that suits your tastes and budget, there are many types of oils to choose from. Some good options to start with are:
- Tea Tree
When you feel like shaking things up again, you might try mixing scents together. Here are a few suggestions:
- Lavender + Lemon
- Orange + Peppermint
How to Apply Your Oils
The easiest option for applying essential oils to Smart Sheep Wool Dryer Balls is to dab a few drops onto them. Since the scent is temporary, only apply them to the wool dryer balls you intend to use right away.
The oil should be allowed to dry for an hour before the wool dryer balls are used. Some people add the wool dryer balls to a load immediately after the oil has dried; however, this technique can result in stains on the wool dryer balls, and can possibly stain clothing.
To avoid this, one can simply inject the oil into the center of the wool dryer balls using a meat injector or syringe. Another way to prevent this is by running the wool dryer balls through a short cycle before using them with clothing, or placing them in a closed pillowcase during the first load.
Oil should be re-applied after about 4-5 loads, depending on the strength of the oil being used. Play around with different scents and enjoy fresh smelling, naturally softened laundry every time!
