Mindful Soap Natural Liquid Soap Review and Giveaway

| 165 Comments

A while back (it feels like a million years ago), I had a little internet retail store selling natural bodycare products.  l loved selling great quality, handmade products–and of course knowing that everything I used passed muster with the EWG’s skin deep rating system.  It was always a challenge, however, to find natural liquid soap that was up to my standards.  So I was really excited when Trisha of Mindful Soap sent me some natural liquid soap samples and offered a giveaway.

While I was learning all about natural products, an interesting sideline was hearing the backstory of the artisan vendors.  Often there was a specific, heartfelt reason they got into the business–from wanting a granddaughter to have a safer nail polish to helping a child cope with eczema. Trisha began making soap as an outgrowth of her son’s autism treatment.  Part of his therapy involved the use of essential oils and she wanted to extend the use of the oils into more of his life.

In addition to skipping some added chemicals in the fragrance (not to mention colors, preservatives and thickeners), natural soaps retain the glycerin which is the moisturizing part of soap.  Commercial manufacturers may remove this valuable commodity, then sell it for profit. 

Natural Liquid Soap - Mojito Scent

Natural Liquid Soap – Mojito Scent

Trisha sent me three bottles of her natural liquid soap in Lavender Rosemary, Mojito and Pink Grapefruit scents.  The soaps were silky smooth, lathered nicely and smelled great.    The pink grapefruit was my favorite, with a citrus brightness and sweet undertones.  The Lavender Rosemary (did you know lavender is relaxing?) would be perfect for bedtime and the Mojito had a fresh summery mintiness with a subtle lime afterglow.   In addition to the liquid soaps, Mindful Soap sells goat milk body cream and (really pretty) handcrafted bar soaps.

  44. Hi Inger,
    WOW! Looks like this give-away is quite popular:)

    When my daughter was combating her breast cancer, essential oils were of the upmost importance for so many things. She used them to stimulate her appetite, ward off the hot sweats and numerous other things. After she recovered successfully, she swore off any soaps or other bathroom products that were not up to the standards she expected. I have heard of essential oils being used quite successfully with autism also. I will have to tell Michele about this company and it’s products. She buys all her oils from doTerra and has switched to Dr. Bronners products too but I will be sure and tell her you give tha A-Okay for Mindful Soaps. Thank you so much for sharing your opinion, Inger. I really appreciate it and will be saving this post:)

    If I were to choose a fragrance, it would be the Rosemary Lavender. They are two of my very best favorite scents and garden plants too, lol…Thanks again, Inger…

  45. I would choose the Black Velvet soap bar and the Rosemary Lavender body wash.

Also my step daughter has psoriasis so I’m always looking for stuff that will help her condition or at the least, not aggravate it further. I think these soaps would work great for her and she loves lavender so If I win I’ll be choosing the lavender liquid one for her. Very interested in trying these out as they sound really great. Thanks for the Chance to win
