This is the most useful and incredibly cool stuff ever made. It can be used for anything: mouthwash, toothpaste, deodorant, massage, shampoo, or even soap. It comes in small bottles, but is very potent. Always dilute before using it - full strength is often overpowering. Plus, the text on the bottle will blow your mind. Highly recommended for backpacking trips.

It can also be used to wash dishes, clothes and for vegetables and fruit. In my distant youth, I spent a summer backpacking through Europe. I used Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Soap for everything.

You can, however, purchase it in large containers. Some stores even sell it by the ounce (you bring your own container).

It's the only soap I've showered with since the late 1980s. The peppermint leaves you all invigorated and tingly--the only catch is not to leave the soap on your sensitive areas for too long. There are also Almond, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree and Aloe Vera baby versions of the soap.

The soap was made the same way for nearly 50 years, but recently the formulation was changed, most notably replacing jojoba oil with hemp oil.

The best place to buy it in my opinion are natural foods stores, and if you buy it in bulk or by the gallon it's not that expensive, really.

Now you can go to to find out all about the stuff. Here's what they say about the Peppermint soap:
