All products that you use in your household every single day should be non-toxic and made of sustainable, natural ingredients. Her’s a dish soap that will deliver all that and help you wash your dishes in the safest way ever.


For this natural dish soap, you need 1/4 cup liquid castile soap, 1/2 teaspoon non-GMO glycerin, 1 1/2 cups boiling water, 15-40 drops essential oil, 1/4 cup grated Dr. Bronner’s soap, 2 1/4 teaspoon super washing soda. For the essential oil you can use any type, but the best ones are lavender, lemon, and orange.


Begin by putting the pot with water on medium heat. Include the grated bar soap as well. Mix it until it’s all liquid. You can now put it on the side and store it in a container. The best idea is to use a bottle with a pump dispenser. Add the 2 1/4 teaspoons of super washing soda, glycerin, and the liquid castile soap.

Leave the bottle to rest for 24 hours. You need to mix it several times during those 24 hours. If you prefer to have a thicker dish soap you can add more washing soda. All you need to do is to heat up the mixture again and pour 3/4 teaspoon washing soda. Once it’s done, you should add the essential oils too.
