Washing the dishes can take its toll on your hands—it can leave your tips looking shriveled and dry, especially if you scrub down greasy pots on a daily basis. Thankfully, it's possible to get household chores done while giving your mitts some well-deserved TLC with an all-natural dish soap! Get excited to whip up a batch of your own by checking out the step-by-step guide below: 


What you need: 

  • 1 pump soap dispenser
  • 1 teaspoon of unscented pure-castile liquid soap
  • 5 drops of either mint, orange or lavender essential oils (depends on your preference)
  • 2 cups of water

How-to:  

  • Start by pouring the pure-castile liquid soap into the soap dispenser. 
  • Mix your favorite combination of essential oils and add in the pure-castile soap. 
  • Fill the soap dispenser with water, shake well and use as desired. 

RL Tip: This makes a great handwash, too! Leave a few bottles in your powder room or in your guest bathroom for a hotel-like experience.
