Dr. Bonner's Soap - What is it?

I haven't been blogging much lately as it seems I've been fighting a sinus infection since before Thanksgiving. I went through my first round of antibiotics and am dreading taking more so I've resorted to taking probiotics twice a day instead. I'm holding the infection back some but it's a long recovery :(

Okay, enough about me! I found this "wonder product" at Target yesterday. I've read about Dr. Bonner's on different blogs and websites and was curious about it. According to their website this all-vegetable based castile soap can be used for many things including body wash, all purpose cleaner, laundry soap, even tooth-brushing!
I searched a couple of my favourite blogs to see how others use Dr. Bonner's Castile Soap and what they've found it's good for.
I found a number of tried and true uses over at Keeper of the Home (such a wonderful blog). Here's Amanda's links for shampoo, cloth diapers, eczema, cleaning and more - wow!
I'll try this soap over the holidays and will report back how it worked out. I have to admit, it's a little intimidating as the instructions on the bottle (I mean look at how much writing is all over it!) are not clear and I'm sure it'll take some trial and error.

Here's a link to the Dr. Bonner's website FAQ's.

My goal, as with many things this year, is to go more natural and chemical-free in the products my family uses - without spending a fortune! This bottle was around $8.00. It's not easy figuring out "natural living" and making it work for me as there's so much information out there and so many conflicting reports.
Has anyone out there ever tried this product?
