North America’s number one selling natural brand of soap, Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap, believes there is no improving on nature. Dr. Bronner’s relies on the proven aromatherapy benefits of peppermint and lavender essential oils with Dr. Bronner’s organic Shikakai (“Shee-kah-kye”) Hand & Body Soaps.

Aromatherapy is one of the oldest methods of holistic healing, equipped to rejuvenate the body, mind and spirit with the use of fragrance or aroma. Dr. Bronner’s Organic Hand & Body Shikakai Soaps contain pure organic essential oils in a base of their famous castile soap to provide a complete cleanse of mind, body and spirit.
