Dr. Bronner Pure-Castile Liquid Soap


I always welcome organic soaps particularly since my children and myself have sensitive skin and we get rashes pretty often especially during hot weathers. Sometimes the itch and irritation is so unbearable that I could not get a good night sleep.

Some commercial liquid soaps that I have tried sometimes make my skin feel drier and did not help to relief my rashes. When I was introduced to Dr Bronner Pure Castile Liquid Soap, I was looking forward to trying it out with my family.

Handcrafted by the Bronner family for 5 generations, Dr. Bronner's Pure-Castile Soaps are USDA 100% Certified Organic. Made from pure, natural base plant ingredients, the combination of mainly coconut oil, jojoba oil, extra virgin oil and pure aromatic essential oils, helps to nourish the skin and relieves it from harmful chemicals.

A bottle of Dr Bronner Pure-Castile Soap has many usages (18 in fact). From soap bath, foot bath, dish washing, hand cleaner, to washing clothing, toilets and many others. There are 8 fragrances to pick from and we chose Lavender and Peppermint.

Lavender Soap - Best for skin troubled with eczema, acne and skin burns with minor infection and abscess. Bathing in Dr. Bronner's Pure-Castile Lavender Soap helps in a good night sleep.

Peppermint Soap - Cooling freshness of peppermint that helps to rejuvenate a stressed-out soul. Simply shiok in this hot, humid weather. Peppermint oil is an excellent astringent and anti-septic to help soothe and tone mildly irritated skin. Used in massages for its cooling and soothing effect. 

We have tried using Dr Bronner Pure-Castile Liquid Soap for showering, washing of our hands and wiping the surfaces.

Hand washing - Wet your hands and put a drop or two of soap on your hands and rub your hands. It leaves a nice fragrance and moisturizes the skin.

Showering - We love to use Dr. Bronner Pure-Castile Peppermint Soap for shower as it leaves a cooling freshness on our body! The minty scent also rejuvenate our minds, particularly after a long day at work or school. It is not as bubbly on the hands but lathers better with a bath pouf.

Wiping of surfaces - Lately, I have also explored dripping a drop or two on my wet cloth and used it to wipe the surfaces and stove top. It wipes cleanly and leaves a nice fragrance after which.

There are other uses of Dr Bronner Pure-Castile Liquid Soap that I didn't try mainly because I still feel it is a soap product and wasn't comfortable using it to wash fruits/vegetables and as a toothpaste and mouth wash. Otherwise, we enjoy using it for our shower and hand wash. It nourishes and did not cause any irritation to our skin.  The 8 oz bottle lasted more than a month and it is very economical.
