Dish Liquid Soap

Dish Liquid Soap

This dish soap is made with Dr. Bronner's bar soap (or similar), organic liquid castile soap, washing soda, glycerin & essential oils


1 1/2 cups boiling water

1/4 cup Dr. Bronner's grated bar soap

1/4 cup organic liquid castile soap

1 tbsp washing soda

1/2 tsp organic non-gmo vegetable glycerin

15-40 drops organic essential oils

1. Place water on the stove over medium/high heat. Add grated bar soap and stir until dissolved.


2. Once the bar soap is dissolved, remove from heat and pour mixture into a container. I pour mine directly into my pump dispenser because it has a wide mouth that allows me to stir the ingredients.


3. Add liquid castile soap, 2 1/4 teaspoons of the super washing soda and glycerin. Stir thoroughly.


4. Let soap set for 24 hours, stirring occasionally, then check the consistency. Keep in mind that it will thicken over time, so a little runny is okay! If you want it thicker warm it up and dissolve in 3/4 teaspoon washing soda, then let it set again. If needed repeat the process – adding 1/2 teaspoon each time – until desired thickness is reached. Important Note: This soap tends to thicken over time. If that happens, no problem! Just add a little warm/hot water and stir to mix. Also, shake from time to time to make sure the liquid is thoroughly distributed.


5. If the soap is clumpy, give it a whir in the blender or mix with an immersion blender.


Once this soap has reached the consistency you desire stir in essential oils. Place in container with pump or flip top squeeze lid and use!
