Review of Dr. Bronner's Pure Castile Soap in Almond

Why You'll Go Nuts For Dr. Bronner's Almond Soap

If you love marzipan, amaretto, and just about everything else that's concocted with the deliciously sweet and nutty scent of almonds, then you'll love Dr. Bronner's Pure Castile Soap in Almond ($17). It might not be the cheapest among the body-care category, but it has a rich, pure aroma that'll make you want to linger in the shower probably a bit longer than you should. But you won't, because you're earth-conscious like that.

Besides the fact that this liquid soap is organic, it's not too gag-me sweet. Since the scent is natural, it doesn't linger around or smell fake on the skin, unlike certain overly perfumed products. It may take a while to get used to the watery texture of this castile soap (it's made purely from vegetable origin). Once dampened, though, it produces a nice, foamy lather that's both film-free and moisturizing. If you're looking for hours of entertainment, we recommend reading the fine print on the bottle, where you can catch the philosophical rantings straight from the late Dr. Bronner himself.

today i purchased the tea tree oil and peppermint soaps. i tried the tea tree in the kitchen and it worked great diluted in a spray bottle. it also felt fantastic not having to get a mask and rubber gloves just for a few minutes of cleaning!

thank you for reviewing this! i was about to buy this last month but passed because it was so watery and thought it might be a rip off. i'm totally going to try this as a household cleanser as suggested.

I have lavender and it smells wonderful, like a natural lavender scent should smell. Side note: It is not moisturizing. The first time I used it straight from the bottle and ended up itchy and dry (But clean!). You're supposed to dilute it 50/50 with water. Works just as well and you won't get all dried out.

I use the lavender for personal (it is strong, so you have to dilute it). Peppermint is amazing for making household cleansers and it also acts as a bug repellant. I live in a old house with collapsible screens and I scrub the window frames with the peppermint Dr. Bonner's to keep out any bugs that might slip past the screen.

I've used this since I was a little kid and I love it. Almond and lavender are my favorites. After Dr. Bronner died they printed the label right on the plastic. Before that it was on paper wrapping and would melt off in the shower before the whole thing could be read.

It is pricier than other options but it is concentrated. I would NOT have paid that for SOAP if it wasn't. Used it for the first time this morning only as body wash and it didn't dry my skin and only four drops lathered my whole body. I'll pay attention to how long the bottle lasts to see if it makes its way into my basket again.

Hmm.. it sounds good. But I'm kind of like GlowingMoon in the sense of having sensitive skin so I think I'll pass. I've tried other organic shampoos/soaps and they have left my hair/skin too dry.

This cleanser is too strong for my skin and hair. It over-strips, leaving my hair and skin dry, brittle, and itchy. But in all fairness, I am sensitive against most cleansers.

I'm from The Adirondacks. Bronner's is always used when washing hair in the lakes because it's bio-friendly.

I've read a bunch of rave reviews for this... and would love to get some! Does it really clean as well as they say? I like to be squeaky clean when I come out of the shower!
