Homemade Natural Dish Soap

1-1/4 c. boiling water
¼ c. tightly packed grated castile bar soap
1T. washing soda (baking soda baked at 400F.)
¼ c. liquid castile soap
10-30 drops essential oil

Add grated castile soap and stir.  Let mixture cool, then add essential oils.  Transfer to repurposed soap dispenser and use as regular dish soap.

Soap mixture will harden as it sets.  If it’s too thick to pour.  Just add a tiny bit of warm water and give it a good shake to loosen it up.
The amount of washing soda you use will dictate how thick the soap gets so adjust accordingly.  The temperature in your kitchen is also a factor
