Love to use essential oils and this is lovely, I never thought of adding essential oils to dishwashing liquid. I bought my normal dishwashing liquid and added the oils. I used lime, orange and rosemary this time, will change it next time. Made washing dishes a lot more pleasant, I do have a dishwasser but also do some by hand. Thanks!!
