Dr. Bronner's is the only thing that will wake me up in the morning. However, do NOT use this (or any other product containing peppermint oil!) on the nether regions. I use this on myself, my dogs, my cosmetic brushes...
This soap changed to a hemp oil base a year or so ago. I was concerned as I've used this for many years, but have sensitive skin. I emailed the company and within an hour I received a congenial response from one of the Bronner kids. Marvelous. She wanted me to let her know if I did have a reaction because she hadn't heard of any yet. Sure enough, I tried the new product and it was fine, if just ever so slightly less sudsy.
The label is just something you can't leave earth without seeing. I won't spoil the surprise.
Try a small bottle for those mornings you need a boost.
I really enjoy Dr. Bronner's soaps. I use the peppermint in the summer (leaves behind a refreshing tingle) and the unscented with aloe the rest of the year. If you are into aromatherapy, the unscented is a great base for adding your own essential oils to create a personal scent. Wonderful health food store find!
First of all, the sayings on the bottle are worth buying this. I still can't make out half the sayings on it, but I'm always amused by those I can figure out.
Having said that, I must say that I love this stuff! The peppermint scent really wakes me up in my morning shower and my skin feels cool and tingly when I get out of the shower. It's perfect for those oppressively hot summer days.
Finally, it doesn't dry out my skin like other soaps and body washes do. This one's a keeper.
THis soap really is magic! I use the peppermint full strength as a body wash and scalp massage in the shower. Wakes me up way better than coffee. Also great at the gym!
