Refresh with Dr Bronner’s


This month we are celebrating two of our most popular Summer scents – Citrus and Peppermint. Popular due to their uplifting and cooling properties, ‘Refresh with Dr Bronner’s celebrates the two invigorating scents, ideal for chilling out during balmier Summer days.

Peppermint – our first-ever Dr. Bronner’s Soap scent – has been a long standing favourite amongst Dr. Bronner’s customers with its reputation for its unforgettable “cooling” sensation. The menthol in the peppermint oil activates cold-sensitive receptors in the skin, mimicking an icy feeling. The iconic Peppermint Pure-Castile Soaps are known for their cooling “tingle,” but they cool the planet too as the certified organic, fair trade peppermint oil in Dr. Bronner’s soaps are grown using regenerative organic farming practices—which help restore soil health and sequester atmospheric carbon, thus mitigating the effects of climate change! Cool!

For those who love feeling refreshed in the shower but find Peppermint Pure-Castile Soap too minty, the zesty Citrus scent is another firm favourite during hot and humid days. Citrus Pure-Castile Soaps contain citrus essential oil, which is widely used for its uplifting properties and is said to help reduce stress. Dr. Bronner’s Citrus Castile Soap is made from a blend of three organic essential oils- Orange, Lemon, and Lime. The Orange Oil is extracted from the outer part of the orange peel, and the orange oil is further concentrated through a technique called “folding” resulting in a richer, juicy fragrance.

Both scents can be enjoyed on their own, or for a double hit of refreshment, try a Peppermint & Citrus combo. A few drops of Dr. Bronner’s biodegradable Pure-Castile Soap can clean:

  • Body
  • Hair
  • Dishes & utensils
  • Clothing
  • Makeup brushes & sponges
  • Tent & gear
  • Fruits & veggies
  • Pets (Peppermint oil can help repel fleas & ticks!)
  • Teeth (yes, it tastes like soap)
