To Be Truly Clean

Dr. Bronner’s may be hippy soap but it’s my favorite soap. I like it for two reasons:

First, it gets my body very clean and leaves me smelling like peppermint, lavendar, or something else pleasant.

Second, it makes me laugh because the bottle is covered with what seems like 5pt ramblings offering advice about love and cleanliness in "God’s Spaceship Earth." You can read an example label here or browse through the complete list.

I ran across this Yiddish Proverb recently: What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul.

I think that if you ignore the label’s claim that it can also be used as toothpaste, this is truly a perfect cleaning solution.

  1. It’s also important to ignore the label on the older bottles that said it could be used as birth control.  While not first hand experience, a friend at a church conference apparently found douching with pepperment soap to be a little…  Unfortunate.
