10 Ways To Use Soapberries:


On the tree, the soapberries begin as a green color then ripen yellow. Picked or fallen off the tree, the fruit will turn a dark purple-brown and wrinkle. We want to use the berries when they are at this last stage.

Soapberry Liquid: Add a cup of water for every 2 soapberries in a pot over the stove. Boil for 30 minutes on medium heat and strain for the liquid. To store, refrigerate the liquid and it should keep for a month.

Soapberry Powder: Grind up as many soapberries as needed to create a powder. (This will store longer)

1. Face Wash: Use the soapberry liquid extract. Or rub a boiled soapberry in your hand to lather and smooth over face.

2. Shampoo: Use the soapberry liquid extract. 

3. Body & Hand Wash: Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil into the soapberry extract. Soapberry is naturally antibacterial.

4. Dish Washing: Combine the extract with some white vinegar. Or use the powder and combine with water to create a lather.

    I purchased your Shea Butter Body Lotion and Body Wash Raw Unscented through Amazon due to it being a natural product because I have eczema. Your products started clearing my eczema within two days!!!!!! I absolutely could not believe it. Over the last 25 years I have tried every over the counter and prescription creams, lotions and so forth. Nothing has EVER worked until I purchased this. This has truly been a miracle product for me. I have now ordered your shampoo and conditioner through your website. Can’t wait to receive it!!! Thank you!!
