Homemade dish soap is fun and easy to make when using essential oils. It is also a nontoxic substitute to using store bought dish soaps that contain petroleum products and synthetic surfactants such as sodium lauryl sulfate.
And one can choose the scent and the essential oil properties of the soap we are making. For instance, oils that are moisturizing to the skin or that support healthy immunity (thieves oil).
How do I make Homemade Dish Soap?
I personally like to use Dr. Bronner’s pure castile soap as a base that is unscented. I usually pick this up at Whole Foods or your local health food store. You can also use soap shavings and water; but if you are making soap at home to avoid commercially made products, then make sure the soap flakes you are using don’t contain synthetics as well.
Here is the recipe I use for Dish Soap:
Mix all the ingredients together well and place in a squeeze bottle. For best results, shake the soap before using. It is that easy!
What Essential Oils do I use for Dish Soap?
You can really use any essential oil, but we don’t want to use oils that are too harsh on the skin. Here are some suggestions:
Be creative and have fun...you can’t get it wrong!
