Pinterest Experiment!-UPDATE

I know you have seen the Purex Crystals and the Downy Unstoppables in the store. I was on Pinterest this morning and just perusing to see what I could find and found a homemade recipe for these! And it's sooooo simple. All the recipe calls for is rock salts and the essential oil of your choice. You mix about 4 cups rock salt with about 40 drops of your favorite essential oil! And you only use about a teaspoon for each load. So, in theory, it'll last a long time. I haven't tried the experiment yet, but when I do, I will definitely report back. Oh, and I was reading that you have to use the rock salt, not the epsom salts. Epsom salts is said to actually make your water hard, which is the opposite of what we are trying to do with this experiment!

--So, I made mine. I probably used more than 40 drops. I love love lavender! I found that using 1 tsp isn't enough. I used 1 tablespoon on the towels and the smell isn't as strong as I'd like so I'll probably use more next time, but the towels were very soft!
