In an effort to make my home chemical free I started looking into making my own household cleaners. This natural dish soap is made with Castile soap which is made from 100% plant oils. I choose lime essential oil because it has disinfecting properties. Lemon essential oil because it is a natural grease cutter as well as a natural antibacterial disinfectant. Both of these citrus oils have a naturally uplifting aromatic scent. And who doesn’t need an uplifting boost when washing dishes?
You can play around with a mix of different essential oils.
Both Grapefruit and doTERRAs OnGuard essential oils would also work well in this recipe because of their disinfectant properties.
1 ½ Cups Distilled Water
1 Cup Unscented Castile Soap
1 tsp Baking Soda
10 Drops Lime Essential Oil
8 Drops Lemon Essential Oil
Mix all ingredients in a glass measuring cup and pour into a glass bottle.
