WHAT ARE SOAP BERRIES (SOAP NUTS)?
There’s a genius plant in the world that goes by the name of Sapindus, so genius that it produces berries that contain a natural soap (Saponin) in their shells! The way that natural saponin cleans is gentle enough for those with the most sensitive skin, eczema or psoriasis.
Soap Berries are often used as a laundry detergent, however, they have been extremely popular by Zero wasters for many other cleaning and personal hygiene purposes! Pair them with Essential Oils and you’ve got yourself a cost-effective alternative with zerotoxins, zerowaste and zeroharm.
WHY ARE ESSENTIAL OILS GOOD FOR CLEANING?
Not only do they smell amazing, essential oils are also highly concentrated and have strong antimicrobial properties. This means they destroy certain germs, bacteria, viruses, fungus and they can break down grease and grime. Different oils are also known for having effects on your mood, for example, lavender has relaxing effects and wild orange has an uplifting and happy effect.
Who would have thought mopping could make you happy?!
