Sometimes you think highly of a brand from just seeing in stores and reading about it, but you have never actually tried it yourself. Dr Bronner’s is one of those brands for me. On a recent trip to Real Foods in Edinburgh, I was mentioned to the store manager that as I was looking for a soap recommendation. Quick as a flash she took me to the shelf of Dr Bronner’s products. I was fascinated by their 18-in-1 claim, but I didn’t know where to start. I think I was slightly taken aback by all the writing on the bottle.
There were several fragrances to choose from, but following on from my love for all things rose at the moment, I came out of the store with a bottle of the Organic Rose Castile Soap. No surprise to hear that I love the smell of this soap. This concentrated Castile soap is a blend of simple, but effective ingredients that include organic coconut oil, organic olive oil, natural rose fragrance, organic fair deal hemp oil and organic jojoba oil. After reading the bottle i knew that this product is three times more concentrated than traditional soaps, so for my first try, I literally had a dot of soap in my hand.
