Castile soap uses

WE have been making liquid castile soap for the last 10 yrs and have found the nicest formula’s for the best quality soaps.

We originally started our business selling neem oil as neem oil has healing properties and is so good for your skin, so are Olive and Coconut oil,  we found the formula with neem oil to be absolutely wonderful.

Our soaps contain nothing else then Neem, Coconut and Olive oil, with Lye and water, nothing else, but fragrances and essential oils in our fragranced castile soaps. The fragrances we use are all Australian made by Australian standards suitable for soap making and use on skin.

The positive feedback we received from selling our castile soap on Ebay has been overwhelming.

We sell a different variety of liquid soap and soap bases, so customers can get a cheap way to buy castile soap with less postage and are able to add their own water, essential or fragrance oils.

Thick gel; A good base product for when you don’t have the time or would like to save money and add your own dilution rate of water add your own fragrance or essential oils.  This Gel is very concentrated and Not suitable for use directly onto skin, 100 gm of gel makes 300 to 500 gm of liquid castile soap.

Thick consistency; is more fluid but wont run off your hand when washing, you can dilute this by adding 2 times as much water and still have a nice foamy soap. Can be used with a lotion pump

Regular Consistency;  is like any other castile soap, this consistency can be used in foam pumps, lotion pumps on babies and the elderly, best for people with sensitive skin or allergies.

 

What is Castile Soap used for?

Castile Soap has many uses. It is a lot cheaper and easy to use. Does not contain  triclosan and triclocarbon nor any other harmful chemicals.

Here are a few of our favourites:

Castile Dish washing: Use it in it's concentrated form for dishes & scrubbing pots and pans in your sink. Just add a teaspoon on your sponge or brush and wash the dishes with it, you will see how clean and shiny your dishes and pots are when using castile soap. You could add a few drops of eucalypt or lemon oil to the castile soap to get that nice fragrance. Get rid of those un-natural soaps and go all natural. Not only does Castile Soap do a good job of cleaning, you can have peace of mind knowing that your using natural cleaning products and saving money.

Hand washing:  We recommend keeping some of our Castile Soap in a foam soap dispenser near your sink and hand basin for hand washing, wiping bench tops or basins and anything in the kitchen or bathroom that needs cleaning. Easy to apply a bit of soap onto a cleaning cloth to wipe benches etc.

Castile Spray and Wipe: Use a 500 ml spray bottle add 1/2 cup of our diluted Castile Soap & add 3 mls of any essential or fragrance oil and then fill the rest with water. Use to clean counters, sinks, toilets and bathtubs. For dusting, use your spray bottle to dampen a dusting cloth. then simply wipe down surfaces that need wiping.

Castile Laundry Soap: Use about 1/4 cup or 50 ml of the concentrated Castile Soap. Or use our ready made castile Laundry concentrate with added eucalyptus fragrance

Castile Shampoo: Castile Soap foams well, with added fragrances or essential oils 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.

Any fragrance can be used, our fragrances are all Australian made to Australian standards, by perfume manufacturers, suitable for skin use.

Castile Soap Body Wash:  Spray Castile Soap on a loofah or body wash sponge and enjoy a shower that engages the senses. Any fragrance can be added.

Castile Soap Shaving Cream: Apply Castile Soap (we prefer Peppermint or sandalwood) on a shaving brush and apply to the areas that you are shaving. Avoid contact with eyes.

Floor cleaning: Add half or a whole cup of castile soap to 1/2 bucket of water, add some tea tree or Eucalyptus oil. Wash/mop the floor and rinse with clean water…

Fruit and vegies rinse: Add 1/4 cup of castile to a bowl of warm water, wash fruit and vegies and rinse thouroughly. 

Pet Washing: Use a bottle like an empty sauce bottle, mix 1/3 of castile soap to warm water, add some tea tree or lavender oil to the mix, shake the bottle well and apply over wet hair, massage it in and rinse with warm water..

Ratios for adding essential or fragrance oils: Use 5 to 20 mls per litre of castile soap, a little bit more if you prefer a stronger solution, but keep in mind the more oil you add, the less foam you get..
