Castile soap is a 100% natural soap with no synthetic detergents or foaming agents. It can be used on all skin types to cleanse and moisturize your body, face, hands, and hair. This blog post will discuss why castile soap is so great for you!

In addition to the many benefits of castile soap, using this type of natural soap also helps reduce our carbon footprint by not having any harsh chemicals in it that are damaging to the environment.

You can use it on your entire body from head to toe because it rinses clean without any residue left behind. It can be used as an everyday cleaner for dishes, laundry, floors, bathrooms, and more.

Castile Soap Benefits plus Uses with Essential Oils by Loving Essential Oils

What is Castile Soap?

Castile soap is made with 100% pure plant-based ingredient. The name comes from the region in Spain where it originated, though its production has now spread to other countries such as the United States.

Unlike other common soaps and cleansers that are made from synthetic detergents or animal fat, castile soap is made from VEGETABLE OIL! It’s available in both solid and liquid forms.

Traditionally, this versatile soap is made only from olive oil. However, nowadays castile soap is typically made up of a combination of oils, such as:

  • Coconut Oil
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Castor Oil
  • Hemp Oil
  • Palm Oil
  • Avocado Oil

Starting with a mixture of water and any one or more of these oils, the ingredients are boiled until saponification (the process by which fats turn into soap) occurs. When finished, this creates an all-natural soap that's gentle on your skin.

Why Use Castile Soap?

Why is castile soap so good? Castile soap is a type of natural soap made from oils such as olive, coconut, and castor oil. This highly versatile product has a multitude of uses that extend into both beauty and wellness regimes as well as home cleaning products.

Castile soap has been found to be kinder than most other soaps because it doesn't contain harsh chemicals like sodium lauryl sulfate or fragrance additives that can cause irritation. This means you can use it every day without fear of drying out your skin.

The versatility of this one item makes it an ideal addition to any natural living routine.

Benefits of Castile Soap

Castile soap offers a wide variety of benefits that you don't want to miss out on. For example, this natural health product won't dry out the skin like other soaps will do because it contains olive oil and coconut oil which moisturize the skin.

Here are the castile soap benefits that make this ingredient a fabulous addition to your beauty arsenal:

  • All-natural
  • Vegan
  • Nontoxic
  • Biodegradable
  • Environmentally Friendly
  • Gentle to use on infants, pets, and sensitive skin
  • Unscented (makes a great base for using with essential oils)
  • It's great for those with eczema!

Plus its pH neutral formula is gentle enough for women who are pregnant or nursing too!

Adding essential oils to liquid castile soap is one of my favorite ways to utilize this all natural soap.

Where to Buy Castile Soap

When purchasing castile soap, always make sure to check all of the ingredients to make sure that they are quality and organic. Look for the unscented version so you can scent it with your essential oils.

Here is our favorite unscented liquid castile soap.

Also check to make sure that you, or anyone who will be using the soap, isn’t allergic to any of the components.

Next, let’s take a closer look at the incredible uses of this beautiful soap!
