How to Use Castile Soap Daily – Brit, Team Ambrosia

Castile Soap… what makes it different from all the other soaps? The main difference between Castile Soap and your run-of-the-mill conventional soap is that they’re made using vegetable oils. Whereas conventional soaps are made from animal fats, Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soap is made of coconut, olive, and hemp oils! They’re a much more environmentally conscious alternative – even their packaging is 100% post-consumer recycled – but they still manage to do the trick when it comes to cleaning your household… and so much more!
