So here it is... our speedy all natural DIY dish wash with the antibacterial properties of pure lemon essential oil for an effective dish clean and pure lavender essential oil because of it's amazing smell and to chill your mood for a therapeutic cleanse at the same time ;P
    Here's what you will need:
    • 1 teaspoon soap flakes (we used Blants ground coconut soap, you could use any natural unscented soap flakes really)

    • 30 drops of pure lemon essential oil
    • 30 drops of pure lavender essential oil

    • Funnel (to make your life easier pouring mixture from bowl to bottle)
    • 300ml amber glass bottle with pump dispenser and wash label
    Method: 
    1. Combine soap flakes and baking/ washing soda together in a bowl
    2. Boil distilled water and then add to soap flakes and soda and mix well with a whisk
    3. Whisk in all remaining ingredients and allow to cool (it basically cools while you are whisking everything together) 
    4. Use a funnel to pour mixture into your bottle. Add pump top and pump down to dispense

  • Citrus Sh*t Bricks

    These natural toilet cleaning bricks should be part of everyone's arsenal. With the natural cleaning power of Grapefruit, Lemon, Wild Orange and Cedar, your toilet will be completely eliminated from any "crumbs" that may be lingering. 

    Ingredients

    - 20 Drops of Pure Grapefruit Essential Oil. 

    - 20 Drops of Pure Lemon Essential Oil. 

    - 5 Drops of Pure Orange Essential Oil. 

     - 10 drops of pure Cedar Wood Essential Oil. 

    - 350ml Bicarb Soda. 

    - 200ml Citric Acid.

    - Dried Orange Pieces for garnish. 

    - Silicone Moulds (ours came from Kmart) 

    Method

    1.  Combine the dried ingredients into a bowl and stir. 

    2. Add the essential oils and stir through well

    3. With a spray bottle, lightly mist the bowl filled with mixture until it just starts to fizz then stir through the dampened mix. Repeat 4 times. 

    4. Place a piece of dried orange in the bottom of each mould. Spoon mixture into the mould and push down till compacted tightly. 

    5.  Leave for 24 hrs to set before popping out of moulds. 

    6. Simply drop one in the toilet and let it sit for 5 min then give a little scrub and flush. 

    When using the Kmart  large ice moulds, you will make 24 bricks if moulds are half filled. Store in an airtight container, we have photographed with a 500ml amber glass jar which will store 10 bricks. 

    During more humid weather, toilet powders can sometimes solidify and be tricky to get out of containers. This is a great alternative. 

    We like to use different garnishes for our bricks, bath bombs and dishwasher tablets so that they are easy to identify and don't get confused. 

    Happy Scrubbing . X
