  • 100% wool dryer balls
  • 3-4 drops essential oils , per ball (I recommend Lavender)


  • Add 3-4 drops of essential oil to each dryer ball before doing laundry.
  • When ready to place laundry in the dryer, add dryer balls--3-4 balls per medium load, 5-6 balls per large load. Turn on and run normally. Do not use dryer sheets or fabric softener, the dryer balls will do the job of both.
