The first time I tried a Dr Bronner’s soap was at someone’s house and it was the peppermint scented version. I swear that it made my genitals burn. Not just tingle slightly, but full on I thought I might be permanently damaged by it. It was really not that amusing and I swore never to use the stuff again. Plus the bottle looked like some deranged Jesus freak had gone on some meth’d out tweek and designed the label.
Fast forward to 2014 and my search for more natural products to use in the bathroom. And Dr Bronner’s psycho soap kept popping up in my searches so I decided to give it another shot. I’m glad I did. This time I went with the lavender scented soap – instead of that genital burning peppermint. Wow. What a difference. The lavender smells amazing and there is no burning.
I bought both the liquid form and the bars of soap which I cut into smaller bars for taking with me while I travel. I’ve become accustomed to the crazy label and it actually gives me something interesting to read while I am in the shower.
In addition to body wash, I’ve been using it for shampoo and for my face soap. So, yay, three products down for the price of one!
