1. Body Wash/Hand Wash

When you're in the shower just wet your body and apply the soap. It creates a great foamy lather. When washing your hands, wet your hands and apply the soap directly to your hands and wash as usual. If you feel as if the soap is too strong for your skin, you can dilute it with water.

2. Shampoo

To wash your hair with our Castile soap, wet your hair and apply 1/2 TSP directly to your scalp. Lather and rinse as normal and then follow up with a conditioner.
