You mean you can personalize how your clothes will smell? This is so cool! Would probably make different kinds with different scents.

Thank you for this. I love how easy this is to do. I hand wash all my laundry and i have found that most of these washing powders are not king to my hand so before i try this i need to know if its safe. If it is i would like to make it and use some natural fragrance from the essential oils while am at it.

I've been looking for a more natural laundry detergent "recipe" because my skin can be pretty sensitive to some chemicals. I'll have to try this out soon!
