Everyone uses liquid dish soap so why not make your own?
This super simple recipe is great for removing grease, adding shine, and waking up your senses. If you don’t have these exact essential oils, use what you do have, although I recommend keeping the Lemon in the recipe. You can substitute any citrus, or even On Guard.

Ingredients & Supplies for your DIY Liquid Dish Soap
Castile soap is a gentle all natural cleaner that can be used for many DIY projects. You’ll want to be sure to use an unscented version.
The Quinn’s Castile soap from Amazon is very popular and a favorite! Even Khloe Kardashian loves it!
Bottle for your homemade liquid dish soap
Normally, I recommend glass containers for anything with essential oils in them.That’s because the essential oils can eat through the plastic.They work wonderfully and in tandem with biologic cells in our body, but not so much with plastic.
This rust proof mason jar with a pump is a super cute glass container that will look fabulous on your counter!
Since this is a dishwashing soap, you may prefer to have a squeeze bottle for this. You could re-use an old liquid dish soap container. Make sure to use PET or 5 – check the bottom of the container. This way you know the plastic won’t break down with the essential oils.
Even Better – You could use the container the castile soap comes in! Just add your oils right to the container!
Essential Oils for your DIY Dish Soap
I usually use Citrus Oils for this. Lime and Lemon essential oils have amazing cleaning power and can dissolve grease and most baked on messes.
You could also add some Lavender. Lemon and Lavender together is a scrumptious combo!
Play around and use what appeals to you, but I definitely recommend keeping Lime or Lemon as your base because of their ability to cut through grease.
