What is Castile Soap?
of Castile Soap
originates from the Castile Region of Spain. Castile
Soap started off to mean strictly a soap made from Olive Oil. Castile Soap has
evolved to refer to any soap made from the saponification of vegetable oils.
You will notice that although all of our Castile Soaps contain olive oil, they
also all contain coconut and any combination of other vegetable oils. Coconut
oil gives soap a nice bubbly lather and is great for cleaning. We add in other
oils for conditioning purpose and to give our soap body. We especially love to
use cocoa butter in our soap. All of our soaps contain either mostly or all
What is Castile Soap used for?
Castile Soap has many, many uses. Here are a few of
Castile Dish Soap: Use it
in it's concentrated form for scrubbing pots and pans in your sink. Get rid of
those un-naturally colored green and blue liquid soaps and go all natural. Not
only does Castile Soap do a good job of cleaning, it smells terrific and you
can have peace of mind knowing that the smell is from natural essential oils,
not synthetic fragrances. We recommend keeping some of our Castile Soap in a
foam soap dispenser near your sink for cleaning up after cooking and/or eating.
Castile House Cleaner: Get a 32
oz spray bottle. Put one cup of our Castile Soap in it and then fill the rest
with water. Use to clean counters, sinks, toilets and bathtubs. Some green
house cleaning companies use it as a dusting spray. For a Castile Soap dusting
spray, use your spray bottle to dampen a hand towel. Then, simply wipe down
surfaces that need dusting such as baseboards, ceiling fans and blinds. For
lighter jobs, try using less soap and more water in the bottle. For really
tough jobs, add more soap and less water.
Tea Tree is our favorite scent to use for cleaning.
Castile Laundry Soap: Use
about 1/4 cup of your favorite Carolina Castile Soap.
Castile Shampoo: This is our favorite use
for Liquid Castile Soap. Castile Soap foams up so nicely and the smells make
for a vivid shower experience. Try our
Peppermint Castile Soap for a morning
wake up shower, our
Lavender Castile Soap for a night time relaxing shower or
our Orange Castile Soap for an anytime shower.
Castile Soap Body Wash: This is
another one of our favorite uses for Liquid Castile Soap. Squirt some Castile
Soap on a washcloth or body wash sponge and enjoy a shower that engages the
senses. Try our
Orange Castile Soap as a body wash.
Castile Hand Soap: Put your
favorite Carolina Castile Soap in a foaming soap dispenser and place at each of
the sinks in your home. Your guests will love the smell and feel.
Castile Soap Shaving Cream: Squirt
some of Castile Soap (we prefer
Peppermint) on a shave brush and apply to the
areas that you are shaving. Keep in mind, our
Peppermint Castile Soap will give
some areas a cooling/tingling sensation. Try using our Lavender or Orange
Castile Soap as an alternative if you prefer.
