Castile Soap Dilution Guide

Castile soap is derived from simple plant oils and is known to be both a gentle and strong cleaning agent. Even though it is an all-natural ingredient, using pure, concentrated castile soap can be too harsh for certain applications. Here is a quick dilution guide that you can use for your castile soap.

Face. 2-3 drops applied on wet face.

Body. Small squirt on wet cloth.

Hair. 2 drops for short hair. 4-5 drops for longer hair.

Bath. 30 ml for an average sized tub. It won’t bubble much but it will clean you.
