Maggie's Soapnuts Review & 4 Giveaways (ENDED)

Winning comments are: 30, 42, 73, and 95

I have been wanting to try soapnuts for a while now. Because we have been trying to live as green as possible, it only made sense that we switch to soap nuts. I received a box of Maggie's Soapnuts and 1 bottle of Maggie Soapnut Laundry Liquid from Maggie's Pure Land to review. I must admit that I was a bit skeptical about how well they would work at first.
I tossed 5 soapnuts into a little bag with our laundry and everything came out clean. I was actually very impressed by how well they worked. Our laundry was clean and soft after each wash. Maggie's Pure Land definitely made a true believer out of me.

By the same token, I was equally impressed by the lavendar tea tree scent laundry liquid. As a matter of fact, I love these products so much that I haven't been able to stop talking about them to my friend and family members since they arrived at my home.

Maggie’s Soap NutsTM are the only laundry soap that grows on trees!Truly effective, 100% natural and safe for your most sensitive skin.Soap NutsTM are the dried fruit of the Chinese Soapberry tree. They contain saponin, a natural cleaner used for thousands ofyears to clean clothes, just like the plants used by Native Americansfor washing.Simply put a few Soap Nuts into the included cotton sack and dropit in your laundry. Your clothes come out clean, vibrant, and soft.Replace your laboratory detergents and softeners with the soapmade from Nature by Nature. Your clothes, your skin, your family,and your planet will thank you.

To buy these great products I reviewed, please go to Maggie's Pure Land.

Many thanks to Stacy of Maggie's Pure Land. She has generously offered samples as giveaway prizes to 4 of my readers (US residents only please). Each giveaway winner can choose from either the 4oz bottle of the liquid soap or a sample pack of soapnuts.

I learned a lot of things about Soap Nuts!
In modern India, Soap Nuts are an essential ingredient in hair care products to increase luster and softness of hair. Soap Nuts are used to eliminate freckles, fine lines, chemical stains and cracks in the skin. They are also used traditionally to treat mild to moderate skin complaints such as eczema and psoriasis. Soap Nuts are so rich in iron that they are used often to treat anemia. When prepared by an Ayurvedic doctor it can treat chlorosis and epilepsy. It can help to promote blood circulation in patients with low blood pressure. And it is used to ease childbirth.
And I like it that Soap Nuts are even safe enough to use as toothpaste and as a fruit and vegetable wash. A ten-minute soak in a solution of Soap Nuts removes 95% of the surface pesticides and chemical residues on fresh produce. That is impressive!!!
