Castile Soap – It’s Benefits & Where to Buy (Includes DIY Recipes)

What is Castile Soap?

Castile Soap is soap made from the all-benefitting olive oil, and has been named so after the Castile region of Spain, which is known for its olive oil.
The good ol’ olive oil is not just good for consumption in food, but also for your skin, hair, and even nails! It is an excellent anti-aging product, a moisturizer, and even keeps the skin healthy, as it contains vitamin E.

What’s the Story?

The origin of Castile soap is an interesting tale of survival of the fittest.
It can be traced back to the Levant (geographical term for a large area in the east Mediterranean) where Aleppo soap-makers made solid soap bars out of olive and laurel oil for thousands of years.
And, let me tell ya’ll, this was not just some mediocre soap – it was the soap. That’s right! Aleppo soap was considered to be an important cleaning product ever to be created.

Even the gorgeous Queen Cleopatra used it!
It’s got to be legit, right?
Apparently, the crusaders brought the Aleppo soap (including the ingredients to make it which was unavailable back home) back with them to Europe, in the 11th century.
Aleppo soap became a revolutionary cleaning agent; in the deteriorating sanitary state, during the Middle Ages, it became a life-saving product.  After this, a lot of new kinds of soaps were popping up in Europe, giving a tough competition to Aleppo’s fandom. However, one out of all these soaps managed to stand out due to its ability to clean like no other soap – the Castile soap.
And from there on, Castile soap has earned a place for itself in the history of the most awesome soaps of all time.
Now, enough about the history, let’s see why it’s so cool.
