Dishwashing Liquid

DIY Dishwashing Liquid using essential oils

Dishwashing Liquid

Dishwashing liquid was one of the first things I wanted to swap out when I started going low-tox DIY with my essential oils.  I was no longer fooled by that sudsy, bubbly stuff that required copious amounts of rinsing to get off my dishes.  Sometimes you could still taste it on the plates and bowls.  My family and I were ingesting that stuff, and I just knew that it can’t be good for you.
I won’t lie, it took me a while to be convinced that cleanliness was not related to ‘bubbly-ness’.  This recipe won’t give you lasting bubbles.  However, it does clean your dishes, is cheap-as-chips, plus, it’s super quick and easy to whip up a batch when you run low (and hey, as a DIYer, Castile Soap will be a staple in your laundry cupboard and will always be on hand!).

Castile soap is a staple of low-tox DIY and is amazingly effective at cleaning and cleansing. Add your choice of essential oil to this dishwashing liquid recipe, but citrus is usually best as it cuts through grease.  Lemon is simple and cheap, or try doTERRA's On Guard blend if you want the added reassurance of a protective blend.
