Natural Smell Good Dish Soap

All Natural Dish Detergent with Essential Oils.

How about some all natural dish soap that is chemical free, smells good and won’t dry your hands out!


Ingredients :

  • 2 TB Borax
  • 2 TB Washing Soda (can find in laundry detergent area of stores and Amazon )
  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 Cup of Sal Suds ( can order on Amazon)
  • 15-20 drops of Essential Oils( I like Tea Tree and Orange, Lavender or Rosemary with my Tea Tree.  It is a good antibacterial, anti fungal and anti-infectious and anti-viral oil.   I usually use 10-12 drops of the Tea Tree oil and the rest what I think will go well with it such as the above mentioned ones.
  • 1/2 TB Glycerin
  • 1/2 TB nourishing oil ( jojoba, almond etc.)

In a saucepan heat the water just until boiling stage.  Turn off heat and add the washing soda and borax, stirring to dissolve.  Let the mixture cool 3-5 min till just warm then add the Sal Suds and essential oils to the water mixture.  whisk the ingredients together and pour into the dish soap dispenser.   The soap may separate after sitting for 24 hours.  If so shake the bottle till all ingredients are combined.

This is a great soap and smells good with the oils plus the jojoba and Glycerin will soften your hands.

Happy Dish Washing!!
