I don’t get excited about the process of cleaning, but I sure do like the look of clean, sparkling glasses right out of the dishwasher.

I smile when I see the shine on freshly-cleaned silverware.

And as readers of this blog know, I enjoy discovering something I can make at home using essential oils.

So when I found a way to get sparkling glasses, shiny silverware, and plates free of caked-on food the first time through the dishwasher… with a homemade detergent using essential oils… you know I had to share it.

Lemon essential oil is one of my favorites.  It makes my kitchen smell so fresh & clean every time I unload the dishwasher!

You can use 40 drops of a single essential oil or use 40 drops total of a combination of citrus essential oils.

Here are some ideas of citrus essential oils to try:

tangerine essential oil

lemon essential oil

lime essential oil

orange essential oil

grapefruit essential oil

caution: check your dishwasher’s instruction manual to make sure homemade detergent is safe for use in your dishwasher.

Do not use in dishwashers with stainless steel interiors.

What you’ll need to make floral bath salts

This website contains affiliate links. This means that should you click on certain links, and then subsequently purchase a product, I will receive a small commission. The price is exactly the same for you as it would be without the affiliate link. 

coarse Himalayan salt (I get mine here)- Using a process called dermal absorption, our skin soaks up the minerals and trace elements from the bath water, including calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper, manganese, phosphorus, selenium, sodium, zinc,  and iron.  Additionally, regular bathing in Himalayan salt can help detox the body, reduce inflammation, lessen muscle aches & pain, temporarily increase blood circulation, and improve sleep.

Epsom salt (find my favorite here) – Did you know that Epsom salt is not actually a salt?  It’s actually a naturally occurring pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate.  Studies have shown that magnesium and sulfate are both readily absorbed through the skin, making Epsom salt baths an easy and ideal way to enjoy the amazing health benefits.  Benefits of Epsom salt:  eases stress and relaxes the body, helps draw toxins out of the body, helps reduce inflammation, and helps improve the absorption of nutrients.

coarse Dead Sea salt (click here for what I use)- Dead Sea salts contain 21 minerals including magnesium, calcium, sulfur, bromide, iodine, sodium, zinc and potassium. These essential minerals naturally occur in our bodies but must be replenished, as they are lost throughout the day. These minerals are known to treat, detoxify, and cleanse our bodies.  Benefits of Dead Sea salt:  potassium helps to balance skin moisture, bromides helps reduce muscle pain and stiffness, sodium helps improves the circulation of lymphatic fluid, magnesium helps support a great night’s sleep, iodine is important for the correct functioning of the thyroid gland and is aids in the body’s metabolic exchanges, and sulfur is known as a powerful detoxifying agent, as it works closely with the liver to rid the body of toxins.

baking soda – Baking soda, or sodium bicarbonate, provides a naturally alkaline substance with a reputation for helping to remove toxins.  Additionally, baking soda helps soften skin and leaves skin feeling silky soft.

dried flowers (click here for the set I use) – Not only are the dried flowers beautiful to look at, they also provide numerous benefits for the mind, body, and spirit.

  • rose buds & petals- relaxing your body and rejuvenates your skin
  • jasmine – enhances mood and refreshes skin
  • chamomile – calming, grounding, helps improve sleep, soothes skin, and can relieve pain
  • cornflower – lessens anxious feelings, eases joint and muscle stiffness, and soothes irritated skin
  • lavender – calms nerves, soothes skin, improves sleep, enhances mood, and can lessen pain
  • calendula – reduce redness, itching and topical inflammation.  It’s soothing and healing and is wonderful for those with dry skin

essential oil –  Essential oils are a wonderful addition to a bath, because their therapeutic benefits are easily absorbed by the skin.  Here are just a few essential oil the wonderful benefits of adding essential oils to your bath.

  • Relaxation & stress relief – lavender, jasmine, patchouli, chamomile, bergamot, orange, ylang ylang and these other calming essential oils
  • Grounding & balancing – patchouli, sandalwood, eucalyptus, vetiver, frankincense, myrrh, cypress, ylang ylang, spruce, chamomile, fir, and petitgrain
  • Improve sleep – lavender, chamomile, cedarwood, ylang ylang, vetiver, sandalwood, and these other essential oils for sleep
  • Skin health – tea tree, geranium, rose, lavender, frankincense, jasmine, chamomile and these other skin-enhancing essential oils

  • Circulation – grapefruit, lemongrass, cypress, eucalyptus, juniper berry, lavender, coriander, and neroli
  • Respiratory relief – eucalyptus, rosemary, peppermint, fir, and these other essential oils for clear breathing

How to use floral bath salts

  • Depending on the size of your tub, use about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of this salt blend per bath.
  • You can add the bath salts directly to the bathtub if you like.  It is beautiful to see all of the flowers floating on top of the water.  However, you’ll want to gather up all the flowers and discard them before draining the bath water.  You don’t want to risk the flowers clogging your drain.
  • Alternatively, you can put the floral bath salts in a cotton muslin bag (like this) and then hang the muslin bag from the water spout so that the hot water hits the bag as it fills the tub.  The salts, essential oils and flowers will dissolve and impart their therapeutic properties to the water.  After the tub fills, you can also add the bag to the tub water.  (note: the bags are reusable.  simply launder the bags in between uses.)
  • When you’re done with your bath, be careful getting out of the tub.  The apricot kernel oil can make the tub a bit slippery.
  • Pat your skin dry with soft, absorbent towel  (don’t rub)
  • Want an extra dose of moisture?  finish your bath by putting on a bit of my luxurious whipped body butter.  It’s the softest, silkiest body butter I’ve ever tried.  Get the recipe here

Liquid Laundry Detergent

homemade HE liquid laundry detergent recipe with essential oils. natural, non-toxic, & it really works! Removes odors, cleans clothes, rinses clean. #doterra #youngliving #DIY #essentialoils essential oil recipes, natural cleaning, DIY cleaning

Have you tried to make homemade laundry soap before and been disappointed that your clothes weren’t really getting clean?

I have.

 

I used to make a homemade laundry soap from Castile soap, washing soda, baking soda, and OxiClean free.  At first, that sounds like a good idea, but it turns out, it doesn’t really get your clothes clean.

In fact, it actually traps dirt in your clothes.

My family’s clothes looked clean, but they weren’t.  They were hiding loads of dirt and debris in their fibers.

 

How did I find out?  I saw someone talking about it on Facebook.  Someone had shared a photo of all the dirt and gunk that came out in her family’s laundry when using a proper detergent after she had been using a homemade laundry soap similar to the one I had been using.

So I tried the test on my family’s clothes, and sure enough, the rinse water of my “clean” clothes was not clear sparkling water like you would expect, but rather the rinse water from my “clean” clothes was a dirty brown sludge.

Yuck!

 

So much for that homemade laundry soap.  I was off to find something that really works.

What I discovered was that I needed a detergent, not a soap.  A detergent not only cleans, it also rinses clean.  And rinsing clean means that the clothes are really, truly clean!

 

So I share with you my homemade laundry detergent recipe.  I hope your family loves it as much as mine does!

UPDATE:  After years of failed experiments, I finally figured out how to make a great natural powder laundry soap.  It’s free of harsh chemicals, artificial fragrances, and dyes.  And best of all, it actually gets clothes clean.  So if you’re looking for a powder laundry detergent, check out my new recipe.  I’m so excited to share it with you!

What do you need to make this homemade liquid laundry detergent?

salt (find in spice aisle of your grocery store or find online here)-  Salt softens the water, which allows the detergent to work more effectively.

super washing soda (find in laundry aisle at your favorite store or find online here)-  Many homemade laundry detergents use baking soda, but baking soda is weaker and doesn’t do as good of job cleaning clothes.  So I use super washing soda instead, and save the baking soda for washing delicates.

filtered or distilled water (find in bottled water aisle of grocery store) –  This dilutes and stretches a batch of laundry detergent so that one batch makes enough for 64 loads of laundry.

Sal Suds (find it online here) –  Organic and plant-based cleaning concentrate that not only makes this laundry detergent, it also makes a great dish soap (recipe here), floor cleaner, and more.  It doesn’t have any artificial dyes, fragrances, or preservatives.  Best of all- it works!  It cleans clothes, getting rid of dirt and odors.  And it rinses clean (even in cold water)!

essential oil –  I use a combination of lavender and lemon, but you can customize your detergent with your favorite essential oils.

How to make homemade laundry detergent with essential oils

step 1: bring 4 cups of filtered or distilled water to a boil.

homemade HE liquid laundry detergent recipe with essential oils. natural, non-toxic, & it really works! Removes odors, cleans clothes, rinses clean. #essentialoils #essentialoilrecipes #essentialoilcleaning #naturalDIY #naturalcleaning #essentialoilDIY #laundry #DIYcleaning #homemadecleaners

 

step 2:  While the water is still boiling on the stove, add 1 cup salt to the boiling water.   Mix well until the salt is completely dissolved.

step 3: take the water and salt mixture off the heat and add  1.5 cups of super washing soda to boiling water

step 4:  mix the really hot water, super washing soda, and salt until it is dissolved.  If you have one, it really helps to use an immersion blender for this.  You want to be sure to break up any clumps.  If not mixed thoroughly, you can have little hard “rocks” in your detergent.

step 5:  Let the salt, washing soda, and water mixture cool a little bit, then add 100 drops of essential oil (this is 1 tsp of essential oil).

I used 50 drops lavender essential oil and 50 drops lemon essential oil.

But lots of other essential oils and EO combinations would also be great.  Here are a few others to try:

  • 100 lemon
  • 70 lemon and 30 tea tree
  • 40 lemongrass, 30 lavender, and 30 eucalyptus
  • 40 lavender, 30 lime, and 30 spearmint
  • 40 grapefruit, 30 orange, and 30 lemon
  • 30 spruce, 30 tea tree, and 40 cypress

step 6: add 2.5 cups Sal Suds

step 7: gently stir everything together.  You want it mixed well, but you don’t want to agitate the Sal Suds, because if you do it will bubble up.

step 8: pour the detergent concentrate into your gallon jar (or four quart-sized jars)

step 10:  gently stir to mix well (again, don’t stir too briskly or you’ll cause it to bubble up)

How to use

  • use 1/4 cup for HE (high efficiency) front-loading washing machines or 1/2 cup for traditional top-loading machines
  • yields: 64 loads in HE machines, 32 loads in top-loading machines
  • You may want to keep a long-handled wooden spoon by your detergent.  Over time, the washing soda and salt may settle to the bottom of the container and you’ll need to stir (or shake) the container to remix.
