“It’s ok to eat whatever you feel like”

I am honestly obsessed with essential oils and when I found a whole cleaning rage to make at home I got on it straight away!! #DIY

We also use our dishwasher A LOT.. so this saves money and is toxin free.

Below I will share also some tips on how to get crystal clear glasses! If you would like to see more DIY posts leave a comment below.

  • 1 cup @therefillerysa baking soda
  • 1/4 @therefillerysa citric acid
  • 1-2 tbsp water
  • 10 drops @doterrasouthafrica on guard protective blend {also good for supporting the immune system}
  • 5 drops @doterrasouthafrica lemon essential oil
  • 5 drops @doterrasouthafrica wild orange essential oil


  1. Mix everything together in a large mixing bowl until the mixture is an even / smooth consistency.
  2. Spoon into silicone moulds {available at Westpack stores}
  3. Leave to set overnight or for 8 hours.
  4. Once set, pop tablets out and store in a mason jar or airtight container.
  5. Use in place of regular/store-bought dishwasher tablets.


Quick Tip:  if the mix keeps foaming leave/mix it for 5 minutes until it settles and becomes smooth then add to mould. For crystal clear glasses add a teaspoon of ACV into the mixture #applecidervinegar
