Washing Powder (natural)
Natural washing powder
Our eco friendly and skin safe washing powder will keep your clothes clean and fresh.
Blended by hand, our natural washing powder consists of five key ingredients to get the job done, without the nasty chemicals and unnecessary fillers. This makes it a pure, concentrated product that lasts you longer, is environmentally friendly, safe for use on baby/sensitive skin and most importantly...it works!
Suitable for use in a front or top loader washing machine. This package will provide you with up to 22 washes. It is a good chance to trial our washing powder recipe and then you can make your own at home if you wish (our recipe is online for you to follow. Check out DIY natural recipes and grab all the ingredients needed to make it while you're there).
*This washing powder is unscented and does not contain essential oils. You are welcome to add your own.
How to use this product:
Top loader machines need 2 Tablespoons of powder, front loader machines will need only 1 Tablespoon of washing powder per load. If you have a top loader machine it is best practice to add your powder as the machine is filling up, before putting in the clothes, so the powder can incorporate properly.
Washing powder works best when used in warm to hot water. Please note that it is made from all natural ingredients designed to clean without the added chemicals to make in "bubble up."
In the unlikely event of skin irritation please discontinue use.
Store below 30⁰C in an airtight, cool, dry spot out of direct sunlight.

Despite the pure nature of our products, some people react or are allergic to entirely natural substances- for example lavender essential oil or Australian jojoba oil.
Whilst allergic reactions are extremely rare and unexpected, My Essential Alchemy cannot be responsible for allergies to products and resultant ailments if any. We strongly suggest that you patch test* (see below) any new product before its continued usage. If any redness, itching or discomfort occurs do not continue use.
Apply a small amount of new product to clean skin inside the elbow, inner wrist or behind the ear. Leave for 24 hours. Human skin changes daily and is affected by emotions, diet, hormones, and the climate. As with all cosmetic products, what suited you yesterday may not today, even though our formulae and ingredients have not changed.
It is especially important to undertake this patch testing if you are prone to sensitive skin, eczema, and psoriasis to avoid flareups.
We personally change our skin care regime throughout the year and suggest that you choose a product to suit the season, i.e. a richer, more protective butter in the winter, a lighter oil in the summer.
Variation in natural products
You may notice a slight variation in the colour or consistency for some of our products. These batch-to-batch differences are due to natural fluctuations of colour from the raw ingredients and seasonal adjustments. We never use synthetic colourants in any of our products. Our formulae are tweaked to suit the changing of the seasons and to provide a sublime end product for our customers.
At My Essential Alchemy, our hand crafted products and raw ingredients are carefully selected due to their natural, safe and effective properties. Despite this, caution must always be taken when handling ingredients in their raw state such as fine powders and undiluted essential oils. Take appropriate precautions for your project, such as wearing gloves, a face mask or working in a ventilated room to preserve your health.
As always, if you experience any irritation, sensitivity or discomfort discontinue use.
When making your own homemade products or storing raw ingredients please ensure that bottles/bags/jars are stored correctly, clearly labelled and kept out of reach of young children.
Our recipes have been tested and trialed a number of times to ensure their accuracy and effectiveness. If you add your own flair to these recipes please use your common sense as to the safety, cleanliness and effectiveness of the final product. My Essential Alchemy will not be held responsible for any products made using our recipes, loss or injury that may occur from making/using our recipes or failed attempts to follow the DIY recipes.
