Wool Wash

Sitting down to inventory my wool wash options, I had no idea I’d amassed so many over the past couple of years. I’ve listed them all here so when I offer to lanolize before sending out an order, I can refer customers to this post.

Most of the scents I use are pretty mild and I don’t buy any scents that give me a headache. That doesn’t mean that a particular scent won’t trigger YOU though… if you’re worried about scent triggers, I always have unscented wash/lanolin on-hand.

Here’s what I currently have on-hand.

Eucalan

Eucalan – a classic. This one is grapefruit scented but I can barely smell it. By itself this isn’t enough lanolin in my opinion so I use this as a first wash and then lanolize after.

 

Wool wash bars… top left is Naturally Luxe Rosewood EO – nice and mild – it’s not a sugary or flowery scent. Top right is one of my all-time favourites… it’s a Sloomb Cube in Kumquat. It’s a really fruity scent and if you’ve ever eaten Bassett Jelly Babies, I think they smell exactly the same. Kumquat smells almost good enough to eat. Bottom are two Sheepish Grins scents – Coconut Almond and Angel Baby (very mild).

BeeGreen products. I have Pink Sugar, Cowboy, and 50/50 Bar in washes, and unscented lanolin balm. I got these through the wonderful Becky at Frank & Beans Originals.

Lanolin sprays – great for touch-ups. CJ’s Lavender&Vanilla (this one is strong…). Naturally Luxe Lavender (also a bit strong). And Sheepish Grins unscented – I use this one quite often as a final touch in the wet zone.

Any suggestions for other brands or scents that you love that I should get? Because maybe I don’t have enough…
