How often do you add essential oils to dryer balls? On average, we recommend you re-scent your dryer balls every 4-5 loads. The strength of the essential oil you use also plays into how frequently you should re-scent your dryer balls.
How do you mix essential oils for dryer balls? Add just a few drops of lemon essential oil to each of the wool dryer balls.

Give the wool dryer balls time to absorb the oil deep into the fibers—a few hours is advisable.
How do you scent wool dryer balls? However, most dryer balls are unscented. If you want to make scented dryer balls, simply add a few drops of safe fragrance oil and let is dry completely (see section above for choosing a safe fragrance). Once the fragrance is dry, throw the dryer ball in with your clothes and run a dry cycle as you normally would.
