Not bad soap, and the bottle's philosophical content alone has helped me stave off boredom in more than one Cascade downpour while pinned down in the tent...

I've been using it since 1971. Interesting background on Emanuel.

With the peppermint, you can tell you've showered long after you've left the shower.  At least in certain parts of the body.

Isn't "hippie soap" an oxymoron?

The Eucalyptus is my preferred version.  It's good basic soap.  FWIW: REI sells it as a "biodegradable" soap for backpacking.

Yes, the label is indeed interesting. I try to bring a bottle or two home with us whenever we visit the kids. Lasts a long time, and I too like the peppermint.

I first ran into this soap on an outing with a big bunch of friends in about 1971 or thereabouts.
We seldom called it Dr. Bronners.  It was usually...”hand me that bottle of THE ALL-iN-ONE-GOD-TRUTH-SOAP!”.
Great stuff!

Had been on the PCT in CA for a week without a shower and spotted a bottle of Dr B s in a campground shower, it was nirvana. At SIFF they had a documentary on the stuff it was fascinating. Now the most popular additive is hemp oil, figures soon it will be CBD. peace.gif

Where I lived back in the early 70s, the only store in town that sold Dr. Bronner's soap was also the city's only "head shop". They also sold "dangerous" gateway drugs like ginseng chewing gum and carob bars, right next to metal pipes and ZigZag papers.

Good soap, but the linked article lost me with their brainless celebrity worship.

My hippie girlfriend turned me on to Dr Bronner's soap back in the early 70's, but we both noticed after using it for months that it sometimes leaves a waxy coating on ... well, I'll just say it ... your pubic hair. YMMV!
