Soap Nuts

I love doing laundry in a natural way so that my family does not have to sleep and breath wrapped in a cocoon of chemicals.  Out clothes, towels, sheets all have toxic chemicals in them if you are using commercial store purchased laundry soap and dryer sheets.  Imagine 24/7 you have a sheet of chemicals next to your body.  And did you know the skin is the largest organ of the body??  Protect it by doing your laundry with a safe chemical free alternative.  Here is one of the ways I do laundry naturally with soap nuts.  Watch this video to see how to use them.

This is a soap nut tree with green soap nuts

They start to get dry on the tree like this

When they arrive they are usually in bags like this and this is where I purchased mine, click here for soap nuts.


They last quite a while, I bought a 3 lb bag last summer and have only used about 1/3 of it.  6-8 of the nuts can last for a few washings. Of course I add a few drops of essential oils by Young Living to each linen bag before I throw it into the wash.  If you have questions or want to know more about essential oils click here.
