The tea tree essential oil in our soap bars is not overwhelming, but definitely there. We used 100% pure tea tree essential oil in our plain castile soap bar recipe, which makes them amazing on your skin and hair. They leave no residue behind and are overall clean and gentle.
> One tea tree soap bar lasts our family 4-6 weeks in the shower or 8-12 weeks at the sink.
> Minimum bar weight: 3 ounces
> Bar size: 2.5” wide x 2.25” tall x 0.88” thick
Tea Tree Soap Bar Instructions
> Store soap bars in a cool location out of direct sunlight. Keep them wrapped in wax paper or store them in your dresser drawers to scent your clothing.
> After use, put the soap bar on a soap deck and allow it to dry so it will last longer!
> Do not leave the soap bar in a puddle of water. Olive oil castile soap bars will not dry out in a puddle (which is one reason they are amazingly moisturizing).
The Story Behind Our Soap Bars
Our traditional olive oil castile soap bars are a recipe passed down from my mother, the original family soap-maker. When my youngest brother began breaking out in scaly, itchy rashes all over his body, the dermatologist-recommended soaps and creams did not work. After the expense and frustration of a series of failed trials, my mom began experimenting with soap recipes until she finally settled on a traditional olive oil castile soap base of saponified olive oil and water. Once satisfied with her recipe, she cleared the house of detergents, lotions, and store-bought soap bars. My brother’s breakouts ceased, dry skin disappeared, and our skin felt soft and moisturized. A year later, my mother founded Cadron Creek Soapworks llc to help support the family farm and share her soaps.
Fast forward eleven years: my own family is heartbroken over not being able to move back to our university jobs and apartment in China. Determined to stay home together with our littles, we set about building a business that would produce quality, comforting home goods amidst a global pandemic. After much experimentation, Nothing Less Than Home, LLC was born. We currently work together with my mom at Cadron Creek Soapworks llc to make smaller, vendor event-friendly bars to pair with our candles, wax melts, and oils.
