Last on Card – Heal Soul Soap (August 2021)

Joining Bushboy’s challenge, which is to share our last photo of the month.

The last photo on my phone was a screen shot of the Dr. Bronner’s soap called  “heal Soul” – 

We actually bought this soap because we like this brand and their latest release had a fresh almond essence and jojoba. Then! One day I actually read all of the little phrases and sayings and had to laugh!

This soap says it supports psychedellic-assisted therapies. Shared some images with family members and that is why the screen shots were there as the last photo. 

I know BB says no explanation needed – but this soap label is funny and had to share:

Did you know the label claims this soap can help you heal from PTSD, depression, end-of-life anxiety, and addiction. Even if it just a placebo kind of thing – if the soap helps – then use it, baby! 

Did we like this “heal soul” soap?

It is “okay” – but I prefer the classic Dr Bronner’s peppermint (always a good staple to have around) and the hubs likes the Dr Bronner’s Earl Gray soap –  which we cannot find anymore (and so he opts for ZUM frankincense and myrrh or any other all natural soap).

-9/7/21

the soap bottle was suggesting folks consider psychedelic therapies for  some healing needs – and their soap here was part of a recovery journey – just FYI

  1. Dr. Bronner labels are always worth a second look. They are good for whatever ails you! Of course washing with soap and water remains the most important thing you can do for your health, so maybe Dr. B is onto something.

    1. hi! this brand has really expanded varieties and it can be used for laundry – cleaning as well as hair and body!
      thanks for the reminder about good old fashioned soap and water for part of wellness ☀️☀️☀️

    1. ha – it is pretty funny to read their labels – their original label had a lot of “all are one” and anyways ago my son thought it was new age kind of stuff and did want to support their brand – but then he realized it was just a company with some mottos – and some darn good pure good stuff

  2. That’s a good one Yvette. When I started looking I thought of the Snake Oil Salesmen of the 1800’s. The label is a cack 😂 Thanks for joining in 🙂 🙂

    1. hi – funny how the snake oil salesman analogy still does make it ways around as a metaphor to beware of false claims –
      and in this case – i think the soap makers say true it soap works in conjunction with therapy and a plan – the other side of the bottle
      explained it a bit more

  3. Interesting all the claims pure castile soap can make to cure what ails you. 🙂 My mom, when she was a young woman, had long, curly hair and used pure castile bar soap as a shampoo. She used to tell me her hair was soft and shiny and I should try it on my long hair, but I never did. We used to wash wooden furniture with it to remove build-up from waxes.

      1. My mom always washed the kitchen furniture with it for years (I don’t, but I’m not as fussy of a housekeeper as she was). The house is in Early American – the table/chairs and corner cabinet are maple and she set it kept them clean. Then we’d polish them afterward.

  4. The label does make some claims and raise a smile… a cure-all for everything methinks if it wasn’t permanently out of stock here it seems to be very popular 🙂

    1. I am not sure this Heal Soul! Is a best seller for them – but the peppermint one has been out of stock a few times over here too – and it really is a great all natural soap

    1. hi Carl
      i think i missed the point of the soap – they were suggesting to use psychedelic therapies for those things and the soap was one part of a recovery journey – something like that!

    1. hahaha – i think they were saying that psychedelic therapies should be tried for that and the soap was just a lm additional part of recovery for anyone needing to heal – something like that!

    1. Wow, Yvette. This is what I need to do, too. I am using this sick time to cut back to almost zero sugars at least. Then maybe I can start over.

      1. Hi Marsha – well I recently heard someone say that “we today have it easier” to cut back on sugar because of so many advanced healthy products that use stevia – while that is true – it is never easy to break free from what our culture has conditioned us to like – ha – it really is a change in lifestyle and mindset
        and so best wishes as you cut back

    1. Hi there – I agree with you about advertising and I think once I explored the label more – they were implying that the soap was one part of what could help heal – and they were actually decorating for psychedelic drug theory which I know nothing about and do not care to ever explore – thank for the comment 🙂

  5. As my skin is very sensitive, I prepare soaps and oils for my family and me. For eg: Ubtan, Aloe Vera,Rose and fruits and vegetables soaps. Herbal hair oils using my home-made coconut oil for eg: Shoe flower and shikakai oil ,Onion and Aloe Vera oil, Curry Patta and Shoe flower leaves oil.

    1. they have it in bars too – but the liquid seems to showing up in more and more stores – but I heard this brand refused to be carried by Walmart (a few years ago) because they did not agree with their policies – anyhow, maybe someday it will make it to your area – our local store now has four or five kinds of their liquid bottles

  6. Hey nice photo. I have some of that flavor a roommate left and like the smell. But I’m more partial to the peppermint.

    BTW I published the bicycle-relevant portion of your comment. I get where you’re coming from, I just feel differently like the majority, But it doesn’t really matter, because I can’t get un-shot. Maybe you could write a post with all your thoughts on the subject. I generally eschew the name calling but didn’t in that case and you’re probably right that’s a good thing to avoid, although it’s a very popular thing amongst we humans.

    Be well and keep on shooting!

    1. Thanks for the comment and the peppermint one is my fav too -( also good for laundry)
      And regarding the comment – good idea to only publish trhay bike related part. And regarding me addressing “that” topic in a blog post here –
      Thanks for the idea but I simply don’t have true time to draft a post nor do I feel it would be appropriate here –
      Have a good day
