Lavender DIY Laundry Soap

I am seriously turning into a tree hugging hippie! Hahaha. No, seriously, I love to try new things like this and I have made laundry soap before but this was way easier. It took maybe 10 minutes total and 5 of that was grating the bar of zote soap. Last time I used a different soap and it has a much stronger scent, so this time I opted for a more natural smell and the lavender is what gives you the scent. I am using Young Living Essential Oil in Lavender and if you are wanting to order some for yourself, send my mom an email and she will hook you up! This costs around $3 to make and it should last a while since you only use 1 tbsp per load of laundry.

Update: I am still loving this detergent. Works great!

DIY Essential Oil Lavender Laundry Soap 

1 bar soap (Zote, Fels-Naptha, or other laundry soap bar - you can find them near the laundry soaps)
1 Cup Borax
1 Cup Washing Soda
20 Drops lavender oil (I used Young Living)


Grate the bar of soap using a grater or the food processor grate blade to speed things up.

Put on the food processor blade and combine the bar soap shavings, washing soda and borax and blend until combined well.

Put into a large jar and drop in 20 drops of oil. Stir really well to combine.

Use 1 tbsp for each load of laundry.
