I don't use it on my body because it was so drying, I ended up super oily skin and hair (retaliation for overdrying). Soap just does that.
I put a few drops in half/half vinegar/water, with a dash of tea tree oil, as an all purpose cleaner.
I used the bar kind to make homemade laundry soap, till I found how much cheaper Kirks is.
It's good for dishes too. Just not all the time. It does build up.
