Soap Nuts are very popular with those wishing to embrace a ''greener'' lifestyle.

The shells are obtained from the ''Soap Nut Tree'' of which there are many types. The shells that we import are from the Sapindus Mukrossi tree found within North India and the Himalayas. Technically a Soap Nut is actually a drupe!

A drupe is a fruit with an outer fleshy part which surrounds a hard seed.  Examples of drupes are cherries, peaches, mangos and olives.

Soap nuts are used extensively in Ayurvedic Medicine.
