This liquid soap base contains no surfactants or thickening agents and tends to have a runny consistency. It is ready to use as a liquid soap, hand soap & body wash. We do not recommend using 100% liquid soap on your hair due to the naturally high ph.
It is very mild, which makes it a great choice for those with sensitive skin. Some essential oils may not mix in perfectly with this all natural soap. We recommend mixing a small amount as a test batch prior to mixing up a large batch. You can add colour and fragrance to liquid Castile.
Safe for children and animals.

Dog washing: Amount varies widely depending on size, hair type and length, and overall dirtiness. I wet my dog thoroughly, then start to work in castile soap up and down their body until I have a good lather. Really massage it in down to the skin. Your dog will thank you for it.
Plant spray for bugs: 1 Tbsp. in a quart of water. Add ½ Tsp. cayenne pepper or cinnamon, if desired.

This such a great soap base. I'm not horribly inventive but have found some great recipes using this soap and I continues to find new uses.
I was just thinking that very thing, Lori. Great for cosmetic and cleaning uses. Thanks for your great feedback!
I love the fact that I can get this product in different size containers.
Personally I use it in everything from basic cleaning products to insecticidal plant mixtures. Works perfectly.
Castile Soap Liquid Base
Great product and value. Use it as a base for sooo much, without the long process and hassle of making Castile soap!
