Herbaria Soaps… A Glowing Review

by Jami Summers on November 5, 2007 · 18 comments

My search for a better soap… I was tired of the harsh, drying effect. I wanted a bar soap that still foamed (I’m a sucker for suds!), didn’t have an overpowering scent, and lasted while stored in the humid shower environment (you’d be surprised how many natural soaps fail this test).

Rose Geranium Soap by Herbaria Soaps

Well, I think I’ve found my solution, ladies! Herbaria Soaps. Beautiful, soft, gentle, and natural. Can you really ask for anything more than that?

I’ve had my soaps for a few weeks now, but I wanted to thoroughly test them before posting up my opinions. Thus far I’ve tried the Eucalyptus Mint, the Jojoba Shampoo Bar, and the Rose Geranium. I still have a bar of the Lavendar Oatmeal wrapped and I’m anxious to try it.

The soaps smell grand and leave a light scent on your skin. I had no breakouts, dry skin or adverse reactions (nor did my friends who I’ve had try the soaps). The Eucalyptus Mint is extra nice when you’ve got a case of the winter snifflies. :) And the Jojoba Shampoo bar is unbelievable for shaving, washing, and even washing my hair! I’ve used a few shampoo bars and they’ve always left my fine hair as stiff as straw; the Herbaria Jojoba bar left my hair soft and very manageable, not stripped.

The only drawback? Be warned, I was ‘stuck’ on the Herbaria Soaps website for over an hour deciding what bars to try (what a dilemma!). There are 35 varieties including speciality soaps for pets, old-fashioned lye, sensitive skin, and gardener’s hand soap. Herbaria also offers a natural bug repellent Citronella Mist spray.

Highly, highly recommended. Customer service is a dream by the way, and they’ve got some super gift baskets for the holidays (hint, hint). Order quickly and avoid some of that holiday rush!
