3 uses of hippie soap (I mean dr bronners)


One of my first roommates was from Southern California. She had one soap in the shower, and it was dr bronners. I would line up my bath and body soaps next to hers and marvel at the fact that she used just ONE soap! Sometimes in the bath I would attempt to read the bottle, but it usually led to a headache due to the excessive amount of text!

Honestly, I just kinda wrote it off as hippie soap. Little did I know that one day I’d move to California and start wearing patchouli.

Nowadays I LOVE dr bronners soap! And our Costco just started selling it. This big bottle of peppermint is only $10!

Here are three easy ways I use it everyday-

1. Healthy hand soap- Fill foaming bottle 1/4 with the soap and the rest of the way with water. During cold and flu season I often add a few drops of thieves, but you don’t have to.

2. All-purpose cleaner- Add soap to spray bottle with desired dilution and fill the rest of the way with water. Helpful hint- a little goes a long way!

3. Creamy body wash- use 2 parts soap, one part olive oil, and one part melted coconut oil. Combine and shake for a moisturizing, minty, refreshing body wash. (I personally find straight dr bronners way to dry to use, but this recipe is perfect for my skin.)
