Many dish soaps have a citrusy scent, but there are other scents used to create dish soaps. Vegetables that give off a fresh, clean scent like cucumbers are popular. Some will also use floral scents like lavender, lily, or hibiscus. The most popular scents for dish soaps are usually orange or lemon. The acidity of the item used to fragrant the dish soap can also sometimes have a functional property to add too. The same can be said for using lavendar, as lavendar is a known floral scent that relieves stress and anxiety. This can be a great benefit when washing the dishes.
