An amazing versatile product. You can team this up with the foaming liquid dispenser. Fill the liquid in and make it last up to 3x as long as when you use an ordinary pump. You can even dilute it even more with water if preferred.
Here are some ideas for usage from our friends at Conscious NZ.
Castile soap can be used to make a natural deodorant. Add 1/2 teaspoon of castile soap and 1 teaspoon of sea salt to a small spray bottle and use in the underarm area as needed.
Pre-make a mixture of 1 tablespoon of castile soap in a cup of water. Use a small amount of this diluted castile soap to wash your hair. Or simply work a small amount of neat (undiluted) soap into wet hair.
Face wash -
Castile soap is mild enough to use on your face and strong enough to potentially prevent acne and kill harmful bacteria. Rub a few drops of soap onto your face and rinse as usual.
Body wash -
Squeeze a small amount of castile soap into your hands to use as a body wash. Use a washcloth or loofah to gently exfoliate your skin.
Hand soap -
You can easily make your own hand soap or foaming hand soap. Add 2 tablespoons of castile soap to 350ml of water. It’s optional to add 1/2 teaspoon of a carrier oil or any essential oil. Fill your soap dispenser with the mixture.
You can use castile soap in place of shaving cream. Lather up a bit of pure soap in your hands and then apply it to the area you want to shave. You can add a small amount of a carrier oil to help moisturize your skin.
Foot bath -
Use castile soap to make yourself a relaxing foot bath. Simply add 2 teaspoons of liquid soap to a small bucket of hot water. You can add a few drops of an essential oil to enhance the experience. Sit back and unwind as you soak your feet for up to 20 minutes.
Make your bath more luxurious by adding 2 tablespoons of liquid soap to a hot tub of water. You can add 1 tablespoon of a carrier oil if you want some extra moisture for your skin.
Makeup remover -
Castile soap can be combined with witch hazel and a carrier oil to make a natural makeup remover. Mix equal parts of all three ingredients together and use a cotton ball to gently remove makeup. Then use a washcloth with warm water to remove any remaining residue.
Laundry detergent -
Add 1/2 cup of castile soap to a load of laundry. You can use less soap if you’re using a high-efficiency washing machine. This may be particularly appealing option for those who get rashes from traditional store-bought laundry detergents.
Castile soap can be used to make your floors sparkle. Add 1/2 cup of soap to 4 litres of hot water and mop as usual.
Toilet cleaner -
Mix 1 cup of soap and 4 cups of water and put in a spray bottle. Use this solution to clean your toilet.
Scouring scrub -
You can use a castile soap scrub cleaner in your kitchen or bathroom. Mix 1 cup of castile soap and 3 cups of water in a spray bottle. Shake some baking soda and then spray the cleaning solution on the area that needs to be cleaned. Use a sponge or brush to scrub away any dirt or grime.
