Contains Virgin Olive Oil

Castile soap was originally made with olive oil being the only oil used, however there are many benefits to creating liquid castile soap from a careful selection of oils as each offers something a little different.

Rich in vitamins including A, D, E & K olive oil offers many reported skin benefits. High concentrations of squalene, in combination with vitamin E results in olive oil having strong antioxidant properties.

In our liquid soap, olive oil promotes a conditioning lather, helping to balance the cleansing properties of coconut oil to ensure your skin isn’t left feeling dry.

Made with coconut oil!

In liquid soap coconut oil is an important ingredient! Castile soap which contains coconut oil typically has a more foaming lather, resulting in better cleansing performance than most other oil choices.

Coconut oil is high in fatty acids that are well known to have anti-microbial properties effective against bacteria and fungi. Studies have shown coconut oil to have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties which may be helpful where acne is found.

Coconut oil has been found to be almost too good at cleansing resulting in dry skin, this is why we combine coconut oil with a selection of other nourishing oils. Striking a balance between cleansing and nourishing results in a liquid castile that is fantastic for hands, body and hair (amongst many other applications).

Switching to natural deodorant

 

Conventional deodorant and especially antiperspirants are known to block pores, in the case of antiperspirants aluminum is typically used to block the sweat ducts.
Initially when moving to a natural deodorant, you can find for the first few days that you seem to sweat more, this is due to the pores slowly unclogging from the commercial antiperspirants.

 

Once the detox period is completed you should find that your body adjusts and our natural deodorant keeps your underarm dry and fresh. The great news is that in our experience our natural deodorant works better the longer you use it.

 

Using the natural deodorant

 

Ensure that your under arm is clean and dry.
The deodorant applys best when warm, apply the stick to your under arm, allow to warm for a few seconds then apply a small amount with a single glide, repeat just once more if needed.
Applying too much will reduce effectiveness, and possibly result in staining on clothing. Trying to apply without warming can causing irritation due to the drag.

Reed Diffuser Usage

If scent needs increasing remember to flip the reeds, and swirl the liquid around.
Usage Option A:
  1. Pour 120ml of fractionated coconut/MCT into your container.
  2. Add 40 drops of your choice of essential oils (Check scent strength and increase as needed at this stage).
  3. Stir until the carrier oil and the essential oils are completely mixed.
  4. If you notice any separation, periodically swill around liquid.
  5. You can add 1 to 2 table spoons of everclear or vodka to increase diffusion.
  6. Flip reeds every few days to refresh scent.

Cautions:

Keep away from children, pets & OPEN FLAMES. When the scent drops, clean out and start again. Reeds can be used for around 6 months. Ensure surfaces are protected.

Usage Option B:
  1. Pour 50ml of Everclear grain alcohol into your container.
  2. Add in a minimum total of 30 drops of your choice of essential oils (Check scent strength and increase as needed at this stage).
  3. Stir until the alcohol and the essential oils are completely mixed.
  4. Add in 50ml of hot water (around 40°C).
  5. If you notice any separation, periodically swirl around liquid.
  6. Flip reeds every few days to refresh scent.

Cautions:

Keep away from children, pets & OPEN FLAMES. When the scent drops, clean out and start again. Reeds can be used for around 6 months. Ensure surfaces are protected.  Mixing additional essential oils after the water has been added can lead to separation. Ensure surfaces are protected.
