I have mentioned in the past that one of my favorite soaps to use is castile soap. The reason for this is that it is one of the most gentle soaps while remaining the most versatile and adaptable soaps on the market.
As I have gotten older I have seen the need products that are pure and simple. When I was young I loved things that smelled good, and really did not care about the product much further than that. Even when it came to my dog, it was my goal to make him smell good. As I have aged, I have learned what the good smelling things can actually do to your skin,
As I said above, castile soap is versatile and simple. Last year I came across a company called Dr. Jacob Naturals and their line of castile based soaps. I recently reviewed their set of exfoliating bar soaps and received a couple of samples of their liquid soaps. As I was washing my hands that night, I began wondering how this would do in other applications and was eager to give it a try.

One of my favorite soaps to use is castile soap. This is one of the most gentle, most versatile and adaptable soaps that is made.
When I was young and first introduced to the miracle of castile soap. My father shared that there was a gentle soap that I could use that would not irritate my skin. I inquired how he had this previously unknown to me, piece of knowledge. After a small chuckle and an exhale, he sahred with me that yes this was common knowledge.
One of my favorite activities of last year was attending the Natural Products Expo because with my attendance I discovered companies I would not have discovered otherwise. One of these such companies was Dr. Jacob Naturals, and since then I have been actively watching the social media. Recently I saw that they have released a set of exfoliating bar soaps, I was eager to try them.
As regular readers will know, I am a fan of soaps, and even more so if they contain natural ingredients and are of a unique color and smell. Since I am a blogger, I spend much of my time on the internet.

SoapBox Soaps: Vanilla Liquid Hand Soap Review + Giveaway
As we head into the fall months I have noticed the smell of cinnamon and vanilla are filling my senses.
When I think of vanilla the first thing that pops in my head are cookies and other baked goods. I had never really been a fan of scented soaps until I hit my late teens. Since then I have become a huge fan of scented soaps, and look forward to new scents and varieties entering my life.
Since the one of the smells of the season is Vanilla it seems more than appropriate that SoapBox Soaps has released a new liquid soap.
I have noticed a trend recently, the use of charcoal in soap. Now on the first thought, it is a question as to why you would want to use something that is an ashy black residue that usually contains ash. Despite charcoals apparent downsides, these are really upsides. Read further to let me explain further.
The use of charcoal has many benefits including removing dangerous toxins from your body, reduces the appearance of acne and can remove the dead skin that can cause skin problems.
It has been mentioned in the past that while I am a girl, I am not a girly girl. There is one area where that is an exception and that is soaps and body washes.
I love different body washes and soaps and I fear that I am becoming a bit of a collector. When I was a teenager the bathroom I used had a 3 foot tile “seat” that served as a staging spot for my myriad of shampoos, conditioners, bubble bathes and body washes. I remember my friends loved coming to my house because it was never the same assortment on display and they always used something different.
Since I went to Natural Products Expo I was on the search for a natural and pure versions of the things that I love. As I was walking around I came upon SoapBox Soaps. SoapBox Soaps is a company that is a small but making a big impact.

Dr. Jacobs Naturals – Liquid Soap Review and Giveaway
About 20 years ago I was suffering from some severe skin issues. This was very out of the realm of normal for me since I had made it through puberty with little acne, but plenty of awkwardness.
I was truly at a loss as to how to handle this new physical curve ball I had been dealt when my father offhandedly suggested that I try castile soap. As I went to the local drug store I was filled with a mix of excitement and trepidation – what if this literally made my problem worse. I purchased the bar and when home to see if this was the answer i needed. After about 3 days I had my answer – my skin was totally clear!
I questioned my father how he had this profound piece of knowledge, and asked if other people knew this secret. It was with a small chuckle and a exhale that he broke the news that, yes people did know about this miracle bar.
As I aged I have found the acne I get is more related to the food I eat and my current stress levels, and because of this I am a fan of castile soap now more than ever. One of my priorities when I attended the Natural Products Expo was to look for more castile soap based soaps. As I came upon Dr. Jacob Naturals I knew I wanted to sample and try their soaps.

Back in the early 2000’s I was having issues with adult acne, and other blemishes on my otherwise flawless face and while searching for remedies, Castile Soap was suggested to me. At the time, I had never heard of castile soap or where to even locate it. As luck would have it, there was a small supply at our local retail store.
I purchased a simple bar of castile soap and within a couple of days of use, I discovered that my blemishes cleared up and my skin overall looked healthier. I continued my daily use of this new “wonder” soap and as time passed it was as though my face went back in time. As I have aged about a decade since that discovery, I am now finding those old issues cropping up.
Since these issues are cropping up again, I began looking for a comparable castile soap to replace my formerly beloved bars. In my searching I came across a company by the name of CastileSoap.com. CastileSoap.com specialized in only castile soap based soaps. while utilizing other natural and essential oils to add benefit to each bar. Castile Soap is not only bio-degradable but also organic, and contains no harsh elements, and it is safe to use on children and pets!
Soap.club Monthly Subscription Review and Giveaway
As we travel through this crazy path we call life, we are met with a lot of unknowns. When we are children our parents try to tell us to appreciate life, and that one day you will wake up 40 and wondering where the last 20 years went.
I have always thought that it is important to have memories and moments. For many people they have the ability to turn those moments into not only memories but something more tangible. I love hearing the stories behind a company – what makes them start, why did they chose now to take this leap and where do they want to end up.
When I find companies that are inspired by moments and memories rather than the alternative, it always gets my attention – Soap.club has done just that. Soap.club is a small family run soap business. The business was inspired while the founding couple was on vacation on the Hawaiian Islands. While there they saw soap making in its purest form and set out to create this same soap. Soap.club uses sustainable ingredient sourcing and achieving ethical trade partnerships.
