Many people have asked about what castile soap is and where to get it since I wrote about making my own cleaning products yesterday.
Castile soap is pure soap made from olive oil and can be used to make just about anything! You can use it to make household cleaners, shampoo, body wash, massage oil, and other personal care products.
I bought mine at Amazon for $26.91 for 2 (32 oz) bottles. I bought baby mild (no scent/essential oils added) because I wanted to be able to add my own essential oils depending on what I was using it for. That way the scents didn’t clash. I can use lavender one time, or eucalyptus for the grease cutting properties, etc. It is concentrated so when you want to use it you use about a Tbsp of castile soap to 1 gallon of water. That means it will last me a good long while. Since most of the other ingredients you need are things you have on hand it is super frugal – as well as good for the environment and YOUR environment – to make your own cleaning products. I made all 4 of the cleaning products I mentioned in my post in about 10 to 15 minutes.
If you are interested in getting some castile soap, here is the link where I bought mine: Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps Pure-Castile Soap, 18-in-1 Hemp Unscented Baby Mild, 32-Ounce Bottles (Pack of 2).
I’ll be sharing more about essential oils and which ones are good for what soon! Did you know many of them have antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral properties?! Still others are grease fighters and odor eliminators.
