How Castile Soap can replace 20+ products

handsoap2 So what’s the deal with Castile? What IS it? It’s basically an all natural, simple liquid soap that  can replace over 20 store-bought products (from body care to cleaning products)
Why I love it?

  • All Natural
  • Tons of uses-a true All-in-one
  • Cost effective. (It costs more upfront than a “regular” liquid soap, but it’s concentrated, goes a long way & will save you money in the end)

Today I’m sharing some of my favorite Castile Soap recipes and uses with you. Let’s get started with my Multi-Purpose Foaming Hand/Body/Face Wash and Shaving Foam, which you can create in just a few simple steps. (Big thanks to NaturalFoodShop for donating this product)

For a foaming wash, you’ll need a foaming soap dispenser.(I just reused the containers from store bought foaming soap & that works out great.) This recipe still works if you don’t have a foaming pumper but I think it works best with the foam.

  • Fill pumper with water, leaving some room at the top to add the soap & oil.
  • Add about a tablespoon of castile soap or just a squirt or 2.
  • Optional: To make it antibacterial, add some TeaTree Oil or for scent you can add any other essential oil you have.

If you want to save a step, they make castile soap that’s already scented including TeaTree, Lavender & several other great scents.
Only want 1 step?! Just put a little on a loofah-ta da :) Check out my video below to see just how easy this is to make

Now onto some other great uses:

This is SUPER simple- just put a little soap on their fur, like you would a shampoo, and lather it up. I’d advise getting some scented castile soap for this like peppermint, tea tree or lavender.

      Hi! Thanks for visiting. Yes this soap is awesome (can’t beat lots of uses & natural right?) :) It can be found many places both online & locally. Mine was from
      If you wanna just run out & get a bottle, I saw Target & Walgreens have it in a few scents, though I’m blanking on the exact aisle..maybe the cleaners? Natural shops/Co-ops usually have it also. Hope this helps.. Best of Luck! -Erin
