This week’s post presents another product I wouldn’t want to live without in my quest to rid our home of toxins (right choice) for improved health and longevity (bright future).
The late Dr. Bronner came from a family of Jewish soap makers fleeing Nazi Germany. His mental health was called into question repeatedly and his religious philosophy, printed on each product label, seems to be a mix of Jewish mysticism and unitarianism not linked to any particular religious group.
Whatever you may think of his ideological statements, Dr. Bronner was an excellent soapmaker and his family has maintained his soap line. I use the “unscented baby-mild” version available at my grocery/retail store (Meijer) for $13/32oz. It is also available online and at some drug stores.
- Use the liquid neat on hands covered in automotive grease or other hard-to-remove messes (my husband was surprised to see how well it worked; it dissolved the grease immediately without drying his hands);
- Squirt some in your sink bowl to wash a load of dishes by hand;
- Mix a 1:2 ratio of soap to filtered water in a foaming soap dispenser to make an exra-strength hand soap that may also be used to clean a dish or wash produce;
- Mix a 1:4 ratio of soap to water and add 2 drops of essential oil (I use lavender and tea-tree for their benefits to skin and natural anti-bacterial properties) to a foaming soap dispenser for hand and body wash (works as a mild shampoo in a pinch too).
