Pure Peppermint Castile Soap
Better than the competition
I bought the Peppermint Castile because of the price. It is better than competitive brands as it works as well as they do but Dr. Woods is more economical. It is very concentrated, so I diluted it with 1 part soap and 3 parts water to use as a facial and body wash. This dilution also works well as a shampoo. I also used it to clean the kitchen and bathrooms. I added about 4 oz. to 2 gallons of hot water. I washed the sinks, counters, tub and then mopped the floor with it. The pleasant aroma of peppermint is much better than the smell of chemical cleaners!

I love the freshness of peppermint, and this soap served many purposes in our home! I used it in my homemade shampoo and diluted it for hand soap and body wash. It's also excellent for household cleaning. The scent is soothing, and it's just pure, healthy clean!

I think I like this better the black soap as far as shampoo goes. The price of this stuff is unbelievable compared to that other Doctor's brand. The small bottle costs more than Dr. Wood's large bottle. Wish I bought more than 2 bottles of this stuff. I've been using it to clean my counters, bathrooms, laundry and washing my hair with it as well. I've tried everything for my flakes and this helps a lot. The only other shampoo I've used that works for my flaky scalp is Desert Essence, Tea tea oil shampoo with peppermint, but Swanson's doesn't carry the shampoo, only the conditioner, for some reason. I was thinking of adding some tea tree oil into this as well. The castile soaps reminds me of the soaps I used as a child, clean and natural, not like the soaps you buy these days that are so heavy, it makes one dizzy.

Better Than Bronner's
I used to purchase Dr. Bronner's peppermint soap, and for the same quantity of Dr. Woods soap, I was paying twice as much. I finally realized my folly. I gave four leaves for the quality because it is very drying to the skin....just like Dr. Bronner's soap. We also use Dr. Woods soap for washing dishes, washing laundry, etc. It is so good that it does not contain EDTA, and all those other poisonous ingredients.

Wouldn't go without it
I LOVE this stuff! I literally get sad when I run out. It smells amazing! I use it in my foot bath, and I swear, it works better than a spa pedicure. My heels are silky smooth. And it's wonderful to just pour into the bath. It's not a bubble bath, obviously. So it's an actual soap. My little sister attempts to make bubbles and uses like.. 1/4 of the bottle.. haha. You only need a few squirts though. Great stuff!

great dishwasher detergent
If you cut this with 20% water, it makes a great natural dishwasher detergent. Just be careful to use a little bit, or else it will suds up too much and start leaking out of your dishwasher.

Nicest Soap Ever
I bought this as a replacement for a more expensive and established brand of peppermint soap thinking it might not be as good. I have very sensitive skin and can only use castile soaps with natural essential oils for fragrance. This soap is so clean and fresh smelling. It rinses nicely and leaves no residue on my skin. I have had no skin irritation from this soap--I'm such a happy camper!

great peppermint smell, a little goes a long way. i put a small amount of this in a spray bottle with water and use as a fabric freshener. i also use this soap for washing my hair and body, a lot healthier than most products in stores.

I love this soap. I bought it for my sensitive son but I think our family should all use it. The smell is wonderful too!

Love it for hair washing
I love peppermint for its stimulating properties on the scalp. I dilute this with 50% purified water and squirt it on my scalp and work it through my hair. I'm not a fan of this as a body wash since I don't like that tingly feeling on my body, but works great for the scalp! I use the black soap for my face & body and it works well too! If using as shampoo, I highly recommend vinegar rinses to smooth the hair cuticle and cut that rough squeaky clean feeling castile soap can leave behind. Your hair will feel amazing! This soap smells good too, like candy cane and so economical!

Great cleanser. Husband uses in the shower. He loves it and says it is very refreshing

Best by comparison
I chose the peppermint liquid soap for the fragrance. I haven't tried some of Dr. Wood's other fragrances yet. It is so refreshing, it leaves me feeling squeaky clean from a shower. I trust its natural ingredients enough to use it to wash may hair with too. It is surprisingly a better price than a more well known brand. It is thicker as well, that means, I don't have to use as much for the same results. Because of the low shipping rate, I still save money on the 32oz size.

I like the peppermint soap because it's a great value and it goes far. I use it to refill all the foaming soap dispensers in my house and I also use it to make a disinfecting spray cleaner mixed with lavender soap and water. A little goes a long way and Swanson has a good price on this product.

An excellent product
I cut it with 5 parts water, put it in a spray bottle and wash fresh fruit and vegetables with it. It's less expensive than Dr. Bronners and it works equally well

What's not to love? The peppermint really comes through and leaves a wonderful fresh feeling whether used on the body or face, and the lovely scent is just perfect.

This soap smells great and leaves a fresh tingle when using it to shower. I also use it in a foaming dispenser for handwashing to make it go farther

Ummmm Peppermint clean!!
I love this product. It is very useful from cleaning my tub and also my hair without harsh chemicals etc. I am very pleased with the results and i even wash my three year olds' hair with it.

just as good as the other stuff without all the funky writing on the out side of it and the high price. Dr.woods is under 7 a qt. great buy

I love this product. I use it to wash my hair and my dog :) ... it rinses clean and quickly. I love the fact that it has no parabens and other nasties. I use it to wash bathroom tiles and sink etc. I am sure there are a zillion other uses, but I am stingy with it. The price beats Dr. Bronners hands down. I did notice it isn't as strong as Bronners, so the pepperminty zing isn't quite as good (I use the peppermint soap) However, if I really wanted to I could add a few drops of peppermint oil and be satisfied. (Which is why I gave 4 stars for quality) I have ordered this product at least 10 times over the last year and a half. Swanson has the best price right now. Vita-cost just went up.

this is a great alternative to Dr. Bronner's which is more than 3 times the price!
comes in a huge 32oz bottle. i use it for laundry, washing up and general household chores, and reserve Dr. Bronner's for personal use.
Dr. Bronners does have the edge over this though, as it's thicker, has a nicer smell and lasts a bit longer(but not 3 times longer to justify the price!)
