Dr Bronner Organic Castile Liquid Soap - Citrus
Dr Bronner’s citrus castile soap is a firm favourite here at Jan de Vries. It combines lemon, lime and orange oils to give a wonderfully refreshing, clean fragrance – with no nasty synthetics! The castile soap itself is derived from olive oil and contains added jojoba oil and hemp oil for some extra nourishment, so it’s kind on your hands, hair, scalp, surfaces, clothes, and whatever else you choose to clean with it!
It’s perfect for adding to DIY skincare recipes because it provides both a gentle cleansing action and a fresh, zesty citrus fragrance.
As a hand soap or body wash: Add a few drops to wet hands, lather onto wet skin and rinse well.
As a shampoo: work ½ tablespoon (or a quick squirt) into wet hair, or dilute two teaspoons into 100ml to last a few washes. Rinse hair with vinegar to rebalance pH. Note: castile soap may not be suitable for coloured hair.
To wash dishes: Dilute 1 part soap with 10 parts water.
As a surface cleaner: Add 1-2 tablespoons soap to 500ml water in a spray bottle. Using the tea tree version will help prevent mould from building up.
As a toilet cleaner: Quarter-fill a spray bottle, top up with water and spray around toilet bowl. Sprinkle baking powder on the toilet brush and scrub. Leave for 10 minutes and flush.
As a hob cleaner: Fill a third of a spray bottle with castile soap and top up with water. Sprinkle the hob with baking powder, especially crusted or burnt-on areas. Spray on the castile solution and scrub with a sponge.
As a floor cleaner: Add 2 to 3 tablespoons to a mop bucket of water.
Remember, these dilutions can be adjusted according to skin type/sensitivity, hair type, or the dirtiness of the surfaces you wish to clean. Make a few adjustments until you find what works for you.
