Detergent growing on trees

I was reading about nature and natural products and was amazed to read that we had detergent growing on trees - yes, you read it right. I am talking about soap nuts. The online material suggests that they could be packaged properly and used even with a washing machine. 100% natural and as good as (or even better than ) the detergent that we buy from the supermarkets. Soap nuts are also used in Ayurvedic Medicinal system for treating hair-loss.


  1. I didn't knew about these existing, it's very interesting. Do you know of any shops where we can buy these natural soap nuts?

  2. Hi James.
    The soap nuts are available in any small provision store in India. High quality wash-specific variety is available online at
    Hope this helps.
