Sometimes the simplest most natural is best.
Many times we find ourselves choosing sophisticated detergents with specific characteristics. Our pantry is full of cleaners for different uses, spending unnecessary money, and introducing harmful chemicals that damage our skin and the environment.
Today I am introducing you to a natural detergent that's pure tree extract. Cleans everything! Without harming your family or the ecosystem.
Quillaja Saponaria, or Soapbark extract, comes from the soap tree Quillaja. For hundreds of years, Mapuche Indians, from Chile, have been using it both for personal hygiene and for cleaning their homes.
Traditionally they produce the extract by harvesting and grinding the bark of the tree, soaking and boiling it to create a cleaning solution. Today we know that nobody has time for it, so it is ready to arrive and use in concentrate.
Add a few drops and clean whatever you want.
