Dr. Bronner's Certified Fair Trade Bar Soaps
Having been a fan of the economical and all-natural Dr. Bronner's pure castile soaps for household cleaning and personal care, I finally tried their peppermint bar soap. Verdict? The rich, organic peppermint oils made my skin tingly and clean-feeling. And it didn't dry out my skin at all (easy to do in my chilly house in winter). A superb, organic, and earth-friendly moisturizing soap that smells and feels amazing? Definitely worth the added expense (the soap sells for around $4 a bar).
And, while on the subject of Dr. Bronner's soaps...anyone have any other ideas on possible uses for the liquid soap? I use it as a hand/body cleaner (1/4 Bronner's, 3/4 water in one of those foamy liquid soap dispensers), an occasional shampoo (dilute! dilute!), facial scrub (dilute!), and foot soak (dilute! in large bucket). Anyone have any other experiences (good or bad)?
