Nowadays, we all tend to have a vast array of products in our bathroom cupboards. But when we have a different product for everything, we can soon run out of space, and find ourselves with products that are only used once in a blue moon. Unfortunately, many of the products we tend to stock up on contain toxic ingredients that are bad for our bodies and also for the environment. This is why today we would like to tell you about a soap that can do practically everything in terms of looking after your hygiene and your home.
We are talking about Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap, in liquid form (although it also exists in solid form, this is slightly less practical for some of the uses that we are going to outline below). This organic multi-purpose soap is ethically produced and contains ingredients that will be appreciated by both your skin and all your household surfaces. You will note that you can read the ingredients list without a problem, and can easily understand what it contains – the ingredients are so good that the manufacturers don’t need to hide behind scientific names. For example, it contains sweet oils (coconut, jojoba, olive and hemp oils) as well as pure quality essential oils. The added bonus: using it is a real pleasure, thanks to its velvety mousse and different odours: citrus, tea tree, rose, lavender, peppermint, unscented (for babies), almond and eucalyptus.
