Our Fascination with Natural Soaps

Cheesy may it sound, our soaps come from a deep respect and fascination of nature. Many would not understand how real soaps are made, all that everyone sees is an amber bottle labeled castile soap from us. To the ones who enjoy our products, we'd like you to know more about it. For the ones who are still pondering to try, read on, you might see a good reason why.

Our castile soaps are made from oils. Not added with oils, but made from oils. All fatty substances can be made into soap, and depending on the oils used, a soap can either be highly moisturizing, bubbly or a highly cleansing one. Olive Oil soap can condition the skin, Coconut Oil soap is very cleansing to the point it can dry out the skin, and Palm Oil soap can be a very boring one on its own. However, mixing them together in the right amounts, you get something wonderful. We stick around with what Mother Nature offers and stay close to it. Casa de Lorenzo Castile Soaps itself are proof of this.

Benefits of Avocado Oil

Image from Lindsay's Blog
We are all familiar with the Avocado Fruit. For us Filipinos, one way or another we have seen these fruits on display on the market or fruit stands. Our parents might have prepared a dessert of milk and avocadoes, or maybe had eaten guacamole with some Mexican dishes. To those who don't know, guacamole is originally made from Avocadoes.

Here in the country, not much is known about this wonder fruit aside from being eaten. We are even ignorant about the nutritional values of the fruit, while on other countries, lots of research has been discovering benefits of the avocado comparable and sometimes even exceeding those of olives. Many are even surprised to hear that the avocado fruit contains oils.

Benefits of Calamansi Essential Oil

This is one tough article to make since there's not much that can be said about Calamansi Essential Oil. There is little research about the oil and its fairly unappreciated yet.

We all know about Calamansi. Its what we use in making juices, cooking, cleaning and laundry. From the supermarkets to the little sari-sari store by the street, Calamansi is available. It is just an essential part of a Filipino's life. Like Lemon and other citrus fruits, Calamansi produces essential oils from its skin.

What are its benefits? First, its scent. Calamansi Essential Oil has the capacity to help deodorize any bad odor. It eliminates the unwanted odors by overpowering other scent molecules in the air since the human nose is a lot more sensitive and appreciative to citrus smells. Making a linen spray of Calamansi Essential Oil will definitely keep your room or any area of your house smelling fresh and wonderful.

Secondly, smelling Calamansi Essential Oil can affect behavior. Studies gave indications that Calamansi Essential Oil have anti-anxiety effects. Just by smelling it, one can feel relaxed and refreshed, some even feeling a tingling effect while smelling.

Third, Calamansi Essential Oil has antimicrobial properties. It is not only astringent, but it can inhibit the growth of bacteria. Adding it on the stuff that you use when cleaning the sink or your bathroom not only deodorizes, but helps eliminate bad bacteria present in those surfaces. Although there are other stronger antiseptic essential oils than calamansi, it can still do the job pretty well.

Fourth, it can help relieve symptoms of respiratory ailments. Best if combined with Peppermint and Eucalyptus essential oils. Place boiling water on a huge bowl and place a few drops of Calamansi, Peppermint and Eucalyptus and start inhaling the steam.

Fifth, mouthwash. Place a few drops of Calamansi essential oil in a glass of water and stir. Begin to gargle with the solution. It helps elimate bad breath and disinfects your mouth.

Its pretty wonderful to know that there's something local and very Filipino that can be used like Lemon. Since we are the world's largest producer of Calamansi, we should take advantage of the abundant supply here in the country.

Super-Moisturize Your Castile Soaps

Image from Mix97
To a lover of Natural Products, more likely than not, you've known that Castile Soaps are awesome in moisturizing and taking care of the skin, depending on how the soap has been made. But of course there is a way of increasing the moisturizing properties of your Natural Soaps.

First, you have to understand how this works.

Every bottle or bar of soap is a delicate balance, thus the soapmaker has to have considerable experience in making soaps, aside from some functional knowledge of chemistry and a lot of patience. Most liquid soaps are on the sweet spot that lies between too much oil and too much lye. Here is where the skill of the soapmaker is essential, as well as the knowledge of what oils to use so the desired effect of the soap can be attained. Coconut Oils are super cleansing when made into soap, Olive oil is very moisturizing and Palm Oil creates very good lather. To create a good soap, these know-hows are all applied.
