Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps

I love multi-use products: The more use I can get out of one thing, the more I like it. 
The bigger the bang for the buck~ The better!

One amazing product that has so many different uses is Dr. Bronner's 18-in-1 Pure-Castille Soap.

Unlike any you’ve ever used. A combination of organic extra virgin coconut, olive, jojoba and hemp oils, together with pure essential oils, creates a unique soap that cleans effectively without being aggressive and produces a velvety-lather that leaves the skin silky-smooth and refreshed.

I am a huge fan of Dr. Bronner's. I've been using it for almost 2 years now and it has come in very handy for a germ-o-phobe like me.

Here are the ways I use Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Castille Soap: (The Peppermint has a strong scent and makes your skin tingle)
  • Hand Soap
  • Shampoo  (For Deep Cleansing)
  • Body Wash
  • Foot Wash (Flip Flops in the city don't result in clean feet.. and dirty feet in bed are gross)
  • Face Wash  (Only once in a while for a fresh deep down clean)
  • Aromatherapy
  • Makeup Brush Remover
  • Laundry (In Africa)
  • Bathroom Cleaner : Shower/Sink (In a pinch)

The soap is very liquidy, and a small drop creates tons of lather.
One bottle will last you forever~
(I suggest buying both the large and travel size bottle.  But the travel size will come in extremely handy on trips~ It'll save you from packing a lot of different soaps.)

There are supposedly 18 different uses for the Magic Soaps.
Personally, I wouldn't use the soap in any way that you don't wash away the soap (Massage Oil and Suntan Oil!?!?  Come On!), but Dr. Bronner's never says what the 18 uses are... so find your own different ways!

Dr. Bronner's is all natural, "clean with a conscience" (Certified Fair Trade, Organice, Recyclable) for all you Modern Hippies like me!
For those of you that don't even recycle or care about the environment (SHAME, SHAME, SHAME!), it's a freaking awesome product.

Dr. Bronner's comes in 8 different scents~ I use the Peppermint for the tingle and scent (and I don't even like peppermint!) and the Almond because it smells absolutely divine.

* Dr. Bronner's parents were killed in the Holocaust (a really sad story), but he still believed in the goodness and unity of humanity.
 * He started his business by making products by hand at home with labels of his positive philosophies, which he called "All-One-God-Faith" and the "Moral ABC"

After over 60 years in the business (Dr. Bronner's is a family run business), Dr. Bronner's Soaps have developed a cult following... and for good reason!

"The intensity of man's emotions is a greater driving force and more decisive than the sum total of his education, his money, plus the size of his brain! Proof: Einstein!"
-Dr. Bronner

  1. Irene great post! I love this soap. I use the peppermint one too my next one I want to try is the eucalyptus. Have you tried the bar soap yet?

  2. Great soap. This soap can be used to clean other things too. Just squirt it on the tub and take a brush to it. Instantly dissolves the soap scum on the tub.

    Great stuff. PLEASE keep up the good work.
