I've always been quite fond of Dr. Bronners soap. The peppermint is a littl too bracing for me, but this is just about perfect. The almond scent is noticable, but withou tbeing cloyingly marzipan sweet. It's sticks around on the skin *very* lightly after the shower for a couple of hours.

I've got some pretty intense allergies to many artifical scents, and this stuff doesn't trigger any of them.

You can dilute this product by about half with plain old water, and it's just about right, strength-wise.

If you're at all prone to dry skin, find a lotion you're find of to use while your skin is still damp. You'll want it. This soap has a tendancy to strip all the oil if can find right out of your skin. The only other con I can think of for this product is, if you have a slow drain, it leaves fierce ring around the tub. It's easy to get rid of, but, it looks awful at first glance.

Take little bottles of this stuff backpacking/camping! It's completely biodegradable, so if you have to wash up in a river, youcan do so without worrying too much about what you might be killing downstream.

In the bottle it smells delicious. Unfortunately as soon as I started to wash myself with it the smell made me nauseous. So I now use it as a laundry detergent and to clean the pet cages. But it leaves a film on the pet cages. So I will not buy again. I would not recommend this to anyone. It is drying and leaves a gross film on your skin.

Try the peppermint one instead.

        This product came with no directions. I live in Florida, the day that the products were delivered it was 90 degrees...every item in the box was hot..not wrapped in bubble pack.

        This item arrived with a broken top. The top looked like it was discinerating--kinda crumbly. Since it was shrink-wrapped there was hardy any mess in box. I got the impression it was an old item.

        Luckily, I can use the top from my previous jar, since it's almost used up. AND I don't have to go through the hassle of returns, etc.

        I am a fan of Dr. Bonner's products, I love the Peppermint and the Lavendar scents, so I thought I would like this one too. It lathers well and leaves my skin feeling soft, just like any of the other soaps, however, I really don't like the way it smells. Its so unpleasant to me that I don't want to use it. I think I will go back to the onnes that I know.

          I am a first time user of this brand and I am very happy with the results. I love the almond scent! I use a small amount and it lathers well. I have also used this as a shampoo and am happy with the results. I plan on buying the unscented soap for my son. I would recommend this product to anyone that is looking for fair trade/organic bath products. I have not tried any other scents but I'm sure they smell just as good.

              Comments about Dr. Bronner's 18-in-1 Hemp Pure-Castile Soap, Almond, 16 fl oz:

              I think it takes a few tries to turn over to this soap if one is used to chemical concoctions. The Bronner's sister has blog about her conversion from conventional chemical shampoos and it took her a couple of weeks to notice the difference. She used the hair conditioner and one of the regular soaps.

              It's really about expectations.

              My dog's fur is much softer than when using traditional pet shampoo.

              I use it daily in the shower and have no issues with lathering, scent, or skin drying.

              The point here, is to reduce chemicals on my body, so I will continue to use this.

              I did by the Sal Suds for Laundry from the main Dr Bronner site. 1 Tbsp for an HE washer is sufficient.

              The Sal Suds and the original soap are all purpose, so as soon as I run out of chemical stuff, I'll start using these for cleaning floors, blinds, wood work and such.

              It's Paraben free and a few other chemicals are missing. The price is good as it can be diluted and will last forever.

              I will warn you though, that it does seems to dry on the dispensers a bit more quickly than conventional chemical based soaps. That is just a simple swipe of a cloth to clean though.

              I read somewhere, that the Tea tree oil is supposed to be an pretty good anti-fungal, anti-bacterial soap replacement.

                  This is an AWESOME product. I was initially looking for a bath soap that had no chemicals and ended up getting sooooo much more! I use to wash with in the shower/bath & use a mesh sponge which produces the best bubbles! Love it... i also dilute it with water 50/50 and put it in a foam hand washing dispenser at the sink. Then one day i was desperate to try anything to get blood out of a shirt (that i was about to throw out) and it worked!! I just put some on & scratched it with my fingernail and it disappeared. I will buy this stuff forever & i love the almond smell.

                    Only bought this because it was the only allowed shampoo during a 5-day camping trip. On first use, it was impossible to rinse out and left a horrible gummy residue on my permed, colored hair. I really thought I had ruined my perm for good. Awful. Next time I'll just rinse my hair with water and forego the shampoo completely, if this is all that's permitted.
