Oil Summary: Organic Castile liquid soap is a very versatile soap that has tremendous benefits to soap making and in general. It originates from the Mediterranean area where it would later spread to Europe. Castile soap is a vegetable based soap and was traditionally made of olive oil. It is free of animal fats and synthetic ingredients. Today, castile soap is made from a range of oils such as coconut, hemp and even avocado. Not only is it environmentally friendly and natural, it is also very safe and gentle on skin when diluted properly. Along with the usual uses for “soap”, castile soap can also be used as an insect spray for plants and is safe to wash pets with. For any beginner soap maker, castile soap will eventually prove itself as one of the most versatile and popular ingredients.
