My husband knows I’m feeling anxious when I start unloading 20-gallon jugs of water from the back of our SUV. He knows by now that something, maybe an article or a social media post, has triggered my need to be more prepared for a disaster than I was the day before. For the last eight years I worked as the communications director at a K-8 private school,
Full disclosure: I didn’t write this post from personal experience. However, I’ve been married to a beard for most of the past 20 years. And I had input from several proud beardsmen. My thanks go out to Aaron, Marty, Benny, and Tyler. The Big Picture Personal care products that stay on the body for extended periods of time warrant extra scrutiny.
Baby bums & unruly eyebrows rejoice—our Baby Unscented Organic Magic Balm is a truly magical multi-use product that both wee ones and grown ups can enjoy. If you know anything about our products, you know that each comes with an extensive & diverse list of uses (you can wash your dogs and your teeth with our liquid castile soap for crying out loud).
As long as I can remember, I have wrestled with my hair. It’s naturally dry and curly, and it tangles easily. I remember my grandpa telling me to just “Brush it!

If what you’re cleaning is really dirty or your water is really hard, then you may want to use more than the specified amount. That said, these Pure-Castile Liquid Soap dilutions should get you started.
Oh how I love a good timesaving trick! Cleaning your makeup brushes with Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Soap is exactly that. Cleaning my brushes is one of those things that often falls to the bottom of my “to do” list. The only time I remember it is right when I’m putting on my makeup. Which is usually as I’m flying out the door.
Coconut Oil wants to be your friend. It wants to be your friend inside and out. And it’s very good at both. One jar of Dr. Bronner’s Organic Virgin Coconut Oil lives in my kitchen where it shows up in all manner of cooking. My second jar of Dr. B’s Coconut Oil lives in my bathroom.
Washing your hair with Dr. Bronner’s can work really well, but the truth is that it often involves a bit of tinkering to get it right. (Your hair type and water quality alone can greatly affect the results!) Here, we try to cover all the basic concepts and offer some troubleshooting tips as well. Much of the information presented here was compiled from customers who commented on Lisa Bronner’s original hair-washing post,
I’m sitting among a tower of tissues as I write this, nose rubbed raw from wiping away the product of a thousand sneezes. I’m sick and sore, and figured it was a perfect time to talk about the latest Dr. Bronner’s creation: our new Arnica-Menthol Organic Magic Balm.
