This is great hand soap.  I love foaming soaps, and this one smells really good.  It smells like good old fashioned essential oils, not weird "fragrances" or anything like that.   Because of the aloe, it doesn't dry my skin out like many other types of soaps do.  

The ingredients include many essential oils, organic herbs, organic tea, and organic aloe vera, and no sodium lauryl sulfate.  ... read more

Last week I had the opportunity to try NewLeaf Clean's fantastic all-purpose cleaner.  This week my family used NewLeaf Clean's dish and hand soap exclusively in our kitchen.  

The first thing I noticed was the pleasant smell.  It smells clean and fresh without being overpowering or artificial.  It's actually one of the best smelling soaps I've used in recent memory.  ... read more

Love to wash my hands with this stuff!  

As soon as I smelled this, I put the other liquid soap we had in the downstairs bathroom in the cabinet.  It has a light, floral scent, and it's not at all over-powering or artificial smelling.  My husband, on the other hand, thinks it has an "old lady" smell to it.  Bummer for him, because I buy the soap in this house!  Call me an old lady, but I think it smells quite pleasant.... read more

I love Global Balance soap and the lemongrass/lavender is my favorite.  I bought it at Whole Foods and it is actually made

 in my city, Newton, Massachusetts.   I love that I'm supporting a local company making natural alternatives to traditional products.  But above all, this stuff smells AMAZING!  I currently use it as hand soap in the bathroom, but I think I might start using it as body soap in the shower.  ... read more
