Dishwashing Liquid Recipes

Recipes for making your own homemade dish soap.

Decorative Dishwashing BottleLiquid castile soap (can substitute one of the unscented natural liquid soaps such as Ecover Natural Dishwashing Liquid, Nature Clean Dishwashing Liquid, or Seventh Generation Free & Clearâ„¢ Natural Dishwashing Liquid* instead)

22 oz or so bottle (can be a squeeze bottle or, for something different and attractive, try using decorative glass bottles with pour spouts such as the kind that you often see filled with oil or vinegar…just be careful to keep on counter and not on slippery sink)

To add fragrance, choose one of the following combinations:

15 drops lemon essential oil
6 drops lavender essential oil
5 drops bergamot essential oil

15 drops sweet orange essential oil
6 drops jasmine essential oil
4 drops eucalyptus essential oil

20 drops lime essential oil
10 drops sweet orange essential oil
5 drops citrus seed extract (grapefruit seed extract/liquid ParaMicrocidin / ParaMycocidin)

10 drops lavender essential oil
8 drops rosemary essential oil
4 drops eucalyptus essential oil

10 drops lemon essential oil
6 drops bergamot essential oil
4 drops lavender essential oil
2 drops sweet orange essential oil

6 drops lemon essential oil
6 drops lavender essential oil
6 drops sweet orange essential oil

6 drops lime essential oil
6 drops rosemary essential oil
6 drops sweet orange essential oil

10 drops rose essential oil
10 drops frankincense essential oil

10 drops neroli essential oil
10 drops mandarin essential oil

If there's a single essential oil fragrance that you really enjoy, such as lavender, you can simply use it without combining it with any others.

Shake before each use. Otherwise, just use as you normally would use dishwashing soap. For tough jobs, can add lemon juice or vinegar to water…use baking soda on stuck-on foods.

The use of essential oils is not recommended for the very young or aged, or pregnant/nursing women. It is the belief of this site that essential oils should not be used internally, only externally and topically. A skin test should always be done before using an essential oil, especially important for those more sensitive or vulnerable. Consult a reputable and experienced aromatherapist for guidance. If you are under the care of a physician, it is recommended that you contact them before using essential oils.

*Just wanted to mention a special thank you to Rebecca at Seventh Generation for her pleasant and efficient handling in sending me coupons via postal mail when I expressed displeasure of having to install software to print coupons from their site.
