Overall Rating: 

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.  


I also have very dry skin and I wash my hands frequently because of diaper changes, and this soap is incredibly moisturizing.  I did notice, however, that it doesn't rinse off as quickly as most soaps so sometimes I notice a soapy residue after I think I'm done rinsing.

I'm a huge fan.  I've only tried their soaps, but I'll be trying more of their products.  

Currently, their products are only available in the Northeast, and on Sunrise Lane Products.  

A side note:  I saw a review of this product, condemning them for using SLS.  I wanted to share this link from Dr. Weil about SLS, who claims it's safe.
