There is so much confusion out there about Castile Soap. I decided to write this quick expose in the hope that it will answer the 3 most asked questions.
What is Castile Soap? Why are there so many different types of Castile Soap? and Are we being misled?
Soap is not meant to pollute our environment and even more importantly it is not meant to load our skin it with harmful chemicals. Soap is meant to cleanse your skin, make you feel clean and smelling good.
Be kind to your skin while caring for our environment. Why are Natural & Handmade so much safer, and why are chemical based products harmful?
Aromatherapy is wonderful and you can have so much fun trying and experimenting different blends. There are so many opinions and advice on essential oils that it can become confusing. Hoping this will answer the many questions I have had regarding essentials oils.
