This is our own made liquid Castile soap. We use pure Olive oil and a touch of Coconut oil (to enhance lather). We purposely do not add any essential oils to this "no frills" recipe. It is a great liquid soap to have at the kitchen sink. We use it for hand-washing, cleaning pots & pans, counters, stove and even a load of laundry (especially for new born). You can make this soap your "own" by adding your favorite essential oils.
