Too long have I been pacing around Dr. Bronner’s products , smelling them, reading up on them, trying them on my skin. They claim you get 18 different uses out of their soaps and all products are certified organic with most being also vegan (with the exception of lip balms and body lotions which use beeswax). 18 uses? How does this not sound like a challenge?
Now that my trip to Colombia is just a month and a bit away I have drafted a packing list and am now in the process of downsizing it to the bare minimums (and a few extras I don’t want to go without).
This was as good an excuse as any to buy a bar of neutral Dr. Bronner’s pure-castile soap and start a little experiment on myself
Since 1 April I have been and for a total of 2 weeks I will be using it as:
- Shower gel
- Face wash
…and see how many other uses I can get out of it (Toothpaste? Seriously?).
I mean, everyone can do this with liquid soap but with a bar???
We will see.
Actually, I really hope it works out since it would be overly convenient to save on such an amount of liquids on my upcoming trip and get so many uses out of one item.
In the interim you can also head to Onceuponacream to read about “18 Ways to Bronner” (in German)
Have you tried and tested any of Dr. Bronner’s soaps? How did it go? Tell me about it in the comments below or via Facebook or Instagram!
