Clean With Castile Soap and Essential Oil

Castile soap is a great option if you have surfaces that could be damaged by vinegar such as natural stone tiles, marble, granite, etc. Also, some people really do not like the smell of vinegar. Castile Soap is effective and highly concentrated so it is very economical for DIY cleaners. It is also good for the environment, and most are free of palm oil or palm oil derivatives. Destruction of forests for palm oil production is the main threat to Orangutan’s survival. To protect forests and save Orangutans from extinction, we should all avoid products with Palm Oil.

You can use the following recipes to clean your entire kitchen without any worry to damage any surfaces. Feel free to use any combination of essential oils you prefer.

Ingredients:
