Castile Soap as Hand Soap. That’s it.

Soap is a wonderful, ancient thing!! I don’t want to go on and on about it, though I could, so here you go:

Soap from most main manufactures have SCARY ingredients, are antibacterial (bad), are tested on innocent animals (super bad) and come in plastic that create trash and exhaust byproducts in the atmosphere via manufacturing(super super bad). We all use soap on our bodies/skin, I would hope, so let’s make it a less negative experience for everyone and more of a joyful, simple, cleansing daily routine. For all you DIYers, I have tried various Pinterest recipes for different hand soap mixtures and here’s the thing; You don’t need anything fancy or complicated.

Just Castile Soap.

So next time you need hand soap; plain, plant-based Castile soap is best. I like ones that are organic and come in glass or recyclable bottles, but I especially enjoy BULK. Dr. Bronners is most popular. Or homemake it! I intend to try (again, after my fail) really soon so stay tuned.
