Benefits of Castile Soap & Simple Ways to Use

Simplicity. So many people have had something to say about keeping it simple…

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
Leonardo Da Vinci
“Simplicity reveals the pure beauty of life.”
Debasish Mridha
“Never overlook the power of simplicity.”
Robin S. Sharma

When it comes to all-natural products that you can use for just about e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g… look no further than the wonderful simplicity of CASTILE SOAP!

What is Castile Soap?

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
  • Jojoba
  • Castor
  • Hemp
  • Palm
  • Avocado

When purchasing castile soap, always make sure to check all of the ingredients to make sure that they are quality and organic.

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