Avoid colored oils, especially citrus, they can stain.
After that whatever youd like. Peppermint, patchouli (if you actually like patchouli), lavender... whatever.

I love how lavender makes my clothes smell!  Doing laundry right now and the house smells so nice

I've use lavender and tea tree oil. The tto is especially good for towel laundry.

I've never used them in the washer, but I put a few drops of lavender or whatever I feel like on a cloth wipe and throw it in the dryer with the clothes.

I am so excited that I found a local store that sells essential oils at a good price! Aside from the scents are there any other benefits to TTO or Lavender? 

I also got Rosemary oil to try to help with the chest congestion my LO has right now, and Im kinda impressed with all the stuff its supposed to do. 

Sorry to be asking so many questions about EO, but I am finding this a very fascinating topic, and now that I have a local supplier Im excited to start "experimenting" with them =)
