I purchased a few of the 8oz bottles of Vermont Soap from Earth Turns to try them out and loved it, so I decided to order the gallon. I use this stuff for all my cleaning purposes and body wash and it works great. My husband doesn't care for the smell but it doesn't bother me. I just add my own essential oils. This is the best castile soap I've tried. All the others dry out my skin but this does not. It gets my dishes and laundry clean without the chemicals so, no complaints here!
