I applied through Mom’s Ambassador to try this product and review it with my mom group.   All thoughts and opinions are mine.

Dr. Bronner’s is the top-selling brand of organic and fair trade bodycare in the U.S., committed to making socially and environmentally responsible products of the highest quality, while dedicating its profits to help make a better world.  Dr. Bronner’s was founded in 1948 by Emanuel Bronner, a third generation master soapmaker from a German-Jewish soapmaking family.  He used the labels on his superb ecological soaps to spread his message that we must realize our transcendent unity across religious and ethnic divides: “We are all sisters and brothers on Spaceship Earth. All-One!”

In this sampling there was 1 large bottle of Castile soap and 20 small bottles to pass around to the moms.  The kit even included lavender.

  • Dr. Bronner’s 18-in-1 Pure-Castille Liquid Soap is ideal for children and sensitive skin (though it is NOT tear-free, since it is a soap not a synthetic detergent, so keep Dr. Bronner’s Baby Unscented out of eyes).

Here are some of the many uses (and dilutions) for Dr. Bronner’s 18-in-1 Pure-Castille Liquid Soaps you can try:

  1. Apply one small squirt to wet hands or washcloth to wash your hands or face.
  2. Make an all-purpose cleaner by adding ¼ cup of soap to 1 quart of water in a spray bottle, then wipe down your sinks and countertops.
  3. Put a dash of soap in a bowl of water to remove residue from fruits and veggies and rinse clean.
  4. Mop the floor with ½ cup of soap diluted in 3 gallons of hot water.
  5. Get rid of aphids in your garden by adding 1 tbsp. of soap per 1 quart of water in a spray bottle, then spray directly on leaf-eating bugs. Dash of cayenne is optional.
  6. Add 10+ drops of your favorite essential oils to a 2 oz. soap bottle to create a custom scent!
  7. Do a large load of laundry with 1/3 cup of soap and ½ cup of baking soda. Then add 1 cup of vinegar during the rinse cycle.
  8. Make your own toilet-bathtub scrub. Mix ¼ cup of soap, 2 tbsp. baking soda, and 2 cups of water. Optional: add a few drops of essential oils.
  9. Make organic baby wipes! Cut a thick paper towel roll in half, and in a large bowl mix 2 ¼ cups water, 2 tbsp. coconut oil, 1 tsp. soap, and 10 drops of tea tree essential oil. Put the cut paper towel roll in a sealable container and pour mixture over towels.

I was excited to share this soap with all my mom friends.  I made sure to let them all know that this soap is not tear-free.  The moms all took home a few bottles each of the soap and some coupons to get more.

I am hesitant about even trying this on P.  When she gets washed up she ends up covered in suds from head to toe.  No way am I taking a chance of getting this soap in her eyes.  S on the other hand is old enough to know not to get this soap in his eyes.  He has been using it in the shower and says he doesn’t mind it.  When I asked him if he liked the smell, he told me he couldn’t smell it at all.  It was smell-less.  This is the first time that a product has said it was unscented and really had no scent to it.

Disclosure: I received this product for free from the sponsor of the Moms Meet program, who received it directly from the manufacturer.  As a Moms Meet blogger, I agreed to use this product and post my opinion on my blog.  My opinions are all my own, and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of May Media Group LLC or the manufacturer of the product.

Disclaimer: I have never claimed to be any great writer. So any mistakes that are made are my fault. Sometimes I mix up names B, S, and P, but I think you can figure out who I am talking about. If you find any grammatical errors just fix it in your mind so it sounds right.
