Summer Giveaway Week: Win a $75 Gift Certificate to Apple Valley Natural Soap

AV gift box

If you want skin care products that are:

  • absolutely pure and non-toxic
  • made with short and simple ingredient lists (that you can actually read and pronounce)
  • that are gentle enough for the whole family

… then you’ll probably like today’s giveaway from Apple Valley Natural Soap!

There are a growing number of companies making “natural” and “organic” skin care products. Many of them are now brand names that we are familiar with and they line the health food store aisles.

Many of these products are truly natural, made with carefully selected ingredients. But, as an avid ingredient-reader, I’m often surprised by how many aren’t, and especially by how many still have those no-no ingredients that we want to avoid!

I haven’t found fault with anything we’ve tried from Apple Valley Natural Soap. Not one bad ingredient. There is something to be said for a company where you can freely purchase what you need, without having to stop and analyze each individual product. That freedom and 100% confidence is what makes me willing to use them daily and recommend them to you over and over again.

Our family’s favorite Apple Valley products

Shampoo and Body Bars

It has been about one year since we first began to use the Shampoo and Body Bars. They are all I use for my body and for my hair. I used to be a fan of the “no ‘poo” method, and I still am in many ways, but my thin, fine hair was experiencing some dryness and breakage.

Since I switched over to the shampoo bars and my hair adjusted, those issues have gone away and my hair is much more manageable.

Organic Liquid Castile Soap

I’ve been a fan of castile soap for years, using it for all of my children’s bathing and hair washing, as well as for cleaning my floors and my toilets. Apple Valley’s castile soap is affordable, comes in several scents, and a big bonus… no bizarre, confused spiritual sayings on the package (all the Dr. Bronner’s users out there know exactly what I mean!).

AV facial serum

Organic Balancing Facial Serum

This is a product that I would have never purchased on my own, but Natalie sweetly sent me a bottle of the facial serum to try. She suggested that after I wash my face at night, I spray it with the Lavender Hydrosol (another product that I was unfamiliar with, but this helps to explain it a bit), and then put a small amount on my fingertips and rub it in. The hydrosol helps to spread it all over evenly, while acting as a toner.

This serum is perfect for night time use, as it soaks in and really nourishes the skin during the night, and when you wake up, any oiliness is completely gone. It’s a very different method of moisturizing than most of us (including myself) are used to, but I’ve been surprised at how well it works and how luxurious it feels.

AV foaming hand soap

Organic Foaming Hand Soap

We keep this foaming hand soap in our main floor bathroom, and it is fantastic. The pumps work well and never leaves a mess. One pump of foam is the perfect amount. The smell is heavenly (we have Citrus Splash, but it looks like the scents have since changed- so maybe similar to Orange Blossom?), and it leaves my hands feeling soft, not dried out. Plus, no antibacterial chemicals— a requirement in our home.

AV essential oil blends

Essential Oil Blends

A couple months ago, my husband gifted me with a post-partum gift of an essential oil nebulizer. It’s a high quality nebulizer and I love it, along with the oil blend he purchased for me at Saje, but I don’t love the $26 price tag on the itty bitty 10 ml bottle. Apple Valley carries six of their own essential oil blends, 15 ml for only $10. That’s my kind of price.

We’re giving away a $75 gift certificate to Apple Valley Natural Soaps, good for anything in their shop!

These are just some of my favorite products, but they also sell handmade soap bars, facial masques, sea salt foot scrubs (oh yes, these were nice), baby wash and massage oil (which smells divine and makes my baby so very happy), lip balm, body scrubs, moisturizing butter bars, organic jojoba and argan oils, simple essential oils (only one oil, not a blend) and more. They are truly a one-stop shop for pure and simple skincare!

A few items currently on 20% off clearance include:

Organic Facial Serum

Liquid Castile Soap

Acne Battle Toner

Each month they offer Limited Editions, and June’s include:

Organic Jojoba in the Lime Spa scent

Global Therapeutic Salt Soak in Lime Spa scent

Gardener’s Scrubby Citrus Basil Bar

  57. I just bookmarked their site to look over when I had the time. I’m interested in the shampoo bars because I cannot find many shampoos without fragrances that I can tolerate and still do well with my hair.

  58. I want to try “Chamomile and Orange Blossom Shampoo and Body Bar”. I bet it smells heavenly!

  59. I’ve been looking for a great soap company that I can trust. Most “natural” ones out there still have parabens and phthalates, to some degree. Thanks for the recommendation!

  60. I’ve tried a winter bar, and loved it! Unfortunately, hubby says we must use cheap soap…he doesn’t see the cost benefit (yet!) I would love to win!

  61. I would have to spend some time prioritizing. We’re starting GAPS soon and are in need of many personal care and cleaning products in non-toxic forms, but we don’t really have any $$ leftover for that stuff after buying all the food!

  62. I think the shampoo and body bars would feel devine. I have been wanting to find a shampoo and body bar and would like to try Apple Valley.

  63. With two little ones at home, I’d love to have a safe shampoo and body soap for them to use. Thanks for this opportunity!

  64. I would love to try some of Apple Valley’s essential oils and oil blends, particularly their organic argan oil and the Charity oil blend! I’m always looking for the “right” oils for my hair and skin, but the price of some oils keeps me from experimenting as much as I’d like. This would be the perfect chance to try some new ones!

  65. I LOVE Apple Valley soaps! I would stock up on our favorite shampoo/body bars (Lavender for me, patchouli for my hubby).

  66. I would like to try the Lavendar Buttermilk Shampoo & Body Bar. I’ve never tried a shampoo bar before, but the website said you could use it in your hair only if you have soft water. I’ll have to check what kind (pretty sure it’s hard though) 🙁

  67. I would love to try the shampoo and body bars! Lavender for me and “MAN 2.0” (ha!) for the hubs.

  68. Though everything sounds great, I’d love to try the essential oils. I’ve wanted to try EO’s for a long time, but I agree with you–the cost for a little itty bitty bottle is out of our budget for now. What a great give away. Thank you.

  69. I’d love to try the Calendula body bar, since I’ve got asthma issues as well as some skin issues and it’s difficult to find a soap I can tolerate.

  70. I love Apple Valley Soaps! I too, have never found fault in any of the products I’ve purchased. If I won, I’d try the facial moisturizer for sure, along with some Bella Rose bars (my favorite). Thank you

  71. I’m especially interested in the baby wash for my 2mo old who seems to react to regular washes. I’m just getting started on this more natural-living journey, so I’d also love to try some of the facial cleanses & serums. I’m having trouble finding something that really works for my skin.

  72. Simply amazing! I would love to get back to using shampoo bars. I want to try the green tea and nettles or the honey hops bars. I loved how my hair felt after using the bars and then we just got out of the habit of buying the bars.

  73. Honestly, I want it all! Trying day by day to convert everything I can in our household to non-toxic, eco-friendly, and economical, so this would be a great place to start for our toiletry needs!

  74. I’ve wanted to try so many different AVNS products for so long… the soap bars are probably at the top of the list, though.

  75. I think I would be interested in the shampoo bars. I’ve been doing “no poo” for three years now and have been happy with it, but like you my hair tends to stay on the drier side because of it. I’ve been trying additional conditioning treatments, but an all in one solution is always welcome.

  76. I use castile soap for washing my face, and I completely agree with you about Dr Bronner’s. It would be great to try something different!

  77. I would love to have the Organizing Balance Serum! Sounds like just what my skin needs after all the hormonal changes of babies and age!! 🙂

  78. I, too, have fine, thin hair and have been debating trying the “no poo” method. After reading your comments, I’d love to try their shampoo bar.

  79. I would love to try their shampoo bars, as I am still looking for a natural alternative to shampoo that works on my hair, everything I’ve tried so far makes my hair nasty.

  80. I have used their shampoo bars for me and my girls and we loved them and the sent. Getting ready to buy some more.

  81. I’d love to try their shampoo bars. Buying “good” shampoo for a family of 8 gets real expensive and I just can’t afford it. I think alot is wasted from my younger ones. The shampoo bars, I think, would eliminate that waste as there is no liquid to go everywhere else but their head.
    Lori g.

  82. Please tell us about your essential oil nebulizer!!! What brand is it, where did your hubby get it from and do you like it or recommend something else??

    I want to buy one, but they are pricey and I don’t know what is a good nebulizer.
    Lori g.

  83. I LOVE their products. We use the shampoo/body bars and the bug spray. I’d love to try the facial serum. Thanks for the generous giveaway!

  86. I really want to try the Green Tea and Nettles Shampoo and Body Bar!

Thank you for a lovely giveaway.

  87. This looks awesome! I was just searching for a shampoo bar to try, I am going to head over there now and take a look! Thanks for telling us about it!

  104. I want to try a shampoo bar desperately, but have felt so overwhelmed in choosing one. Narrowing down to a BRAND at least would be fantastic!

  105. I would LOVE to try their foaming soap! With four young children the foaming soaps are so awesome, but the ones at the local store probably have more nasty chemicals in them then I’d like to think about! I love all things lavender, but my kids would probably prefer the lime or grapefruit peppermint scents. 🙂

  106. I want to try the peppermint tea tree shampoo and body bar – I’m been doing no-poo but need a little something more!

  111. I would love to try the Castile soap! Wouldn’t have to tear off the crazy label to avoid the spiritual craziness!!

  113. Would love to try the shampoo bar–the baking soda doesn’t do well with my hair either, so I’d enjoy trying this!

  114. I love Apple Valley Natural Soaps. I met them at the Bethlehem Craft Boutique and just placed an order from our new home in Colorado. I received the lovely package of shampoo/body bars I ordered with a sample of a new soap they’ve been making. What an awesome company. They’ve made the switch from traditional detergent shampoo to a natural option so much easier than I expected. I’ve tried using the shampoo/body bars for shaving too. It’s not quite as smooth as shaving cream, but I’m planning to go that route for our two-week road trip this summer. Thanks Apple Valley Natural Soaps and Keeper of the Home!!!

  115. I need to try their shampoo bars! I’ve been on the hunt for a good natural shampoo and haven’t had any luck so far!

  121. Wanting to get the acne battle treatment for my daughter. For myself I’d appreciate some choice in good shampoo bars 🙂

  122. Ooh…I’ d like to try that serum and their creamy butter lotion bars, and their bar soaps, and probably about half a dozen other things! Thank you!

  123. I would love the essential oils and soaps. Essential oils are wonderful with so many uses! Good luck to all.

  124. They all look so good! But the ones I most would want to try would be: Organic Foaming Hand Soap (Orange Blossom scent), the Vanilla Sugar Body Polish, the Citrus Sugar Body Polish, and the Organic Herbal Salve!

  125. I would *love* to try their essential oils! I’ve been learning a lot about essential oils lately. With all of their awesome uses, I’d love to broaden my collection! 🙂

  126. Their facial serum looks interesting and I’m also such a sucker for lovely soap that it’d be nice to try a bar or two… honey carrot and tangerine sounds like a tempting combo. Thanks for the introduction to this lovely company!

  127. I just placed my first order with them for essential oils and am really happy so far! I can’t wait to try some of their other products.

  128. I’m a huge fan of their shampoo bars and would love to try some new “flavors.” I’d also like to try their castile soap. We’re almost out of our Dr. Bronner’s.

  129. I would like to try their essential oils! I?ve been learning a lot about essential oils lately. The shampoo bars would be good too!

  130. I would really love to try the All Natural Bug Repellent. My kids would love to try the organic baby wash. 🙂

  131. wud love to win this… always lookuing for more natural prodcuts esp with a baby on the way in just a month or so!

  132. Definitely interested in the facial serums. I recently had a facial for the first time (a special treat from a friend) and was told to try a serum rather than a night cream to help moisturize without causing acne.

  133. I’d love the man 2.0 body, shampoo, and shaving bar for my husband. He currently uses whatever soap is in the shower, and I know this would be much nicer!

  134. citrus basil soap…i have sensitive skin and usually have to use those hypoallergenic soaps with no fragrance

  135. I would love really love to try the Lavender Buttermilk Shampoo and Body Bar. I have been looking for a great shampoo bar, and this would be perfect to try!

  136. They have so many amazing looking products it’d be hard to choose! The first thing that caught my eye though are the soap trays-I need at least two.

  137. I have to admit that I have lurked on your blog for a long time. I have been slowly making the change to more natural products. I haven’t heard of this product but will be checking it out to see if they are available at our local natural store.

  138. What a great giveaway! I would love to try one of the shampoo bars and some of the baby products. 🙂

  139. I’ve been wanting to do more with essential oils, and their blends look fantastic! I could spend a lot of money here. 🙂

  140. i’d definitely would like to try Organic Balancing Facial Serum. i’m looking for something to put moisturizers back into my skin. 🙂

  141. I would love this gift certificate! I’ve been surfing their site since yesterday, it looks amazing. My four year old and I have REALLY sensitive skin and it is nearly impossible to find soaps and shampoos that don’t give me rashes or break me out with other side effects. I also have had to resort to supporting Bronners out of desperation, even though I really don’t appreciate the jibber jabber on the bottle. I also noticed they have a scripture lullaby cd on their site… Now that is a business I won’t mind supporting!

  142. any of the bar soaps or liquid soaps would be great. I can’t use “regular” soap and only buy that for making laundry detergent.

  143. Looks like we’ve been thinking about the same things! I’ve been on the hunt for natural, yet affordable, body care products lately. My hands are very “picky” and have been flaring up with eczema lately. I blame moving from well water to city water – but in addition to filtering I’ve decided to commit to a more natural lifestyle, not just in the kitchen. This gift certificate would surely help. 🙂 P.S. Keep up the good work, your blog rocks!

  144. I would love to try pretty much everything they offer, but I think my first choice right now would be the bug repellent.

  145. Forgot to say which products I’d be interested in! Oops. Definitely the castile foaming hand soap. Also the Buttermilk Lavender, Man 2.0 for hubby, Rhassoul and Avocado, Silky Patchouli, Bella Rose, Chammomile and Orange, and Honey and Hops bars. Yes. All those bars. Lol. Even if I don’t win, I’m going to atleast try a couple. 🙂 Love those unique combos!

  146. I would like to try their facial products. I rarely use any moisturizers or special products and have been wanting to start using something but wasn’t sure what. I have used some of their other products and really liked them.

  147. I already use their shampoo and body bars but would like to try one of their hydrosols and their hand soaps.

  148. I would love to try the lavender buttermilk shampoo bar! I want to get something natural for my hair so much so that I can stop using shampoo.

  149. I LOVE Apple Valley Natural Soap and the family that runs it! 🙂
    My favorite item is the Herbal Salve but I would be super excited to try one of her new essential oil blends!

  150. I am interested in the bug repellent. Mosquitos love my 2 year old, but I don’t love the commercial bug sprays.

  151. Hard to decide!! but interested in the essential oil blends or the baby gifts. Thanks for the giveaway!

    1. oh and the why is because I’m new to this world of essential oils but I’m getting fascinated by all the good things that it can help with. And the baby gifts, cause I just had a new baby girl and would love to pamper her with good stuff! 🙂

  152. I’m intrigued to learn more about their castile soap. I just started using Dr. Bronner’s and yep, all that weird stuff on the label has me “weirded out”!

  153. Hard choice! Maybe the lavender body and shampoo bar. Or the man soap. Or one of the moisturizers.

  154. I’ve been trying to go more natural in our home and body care, but it’s so hard with everything being expensive (and our funds always getting lower). I would LOVE to get a shampoo bar that works on my hair!!

  155. I would love to try the Bella Rose Shampoo and Body Bar. Very temping after reading the description!

  156. would most like to try the Acne Battle Toner as I need something to help get rid of acne & keep my skin better

  157. I would love the Organic Virgin Argan Oil for my face and cuticles because I usually either use olive oil (which is rather greasy) or whatever lotion my friend passes on to me. (She does buy nice lotions, though.)

  158. I have tried (and love!) several things previously, but would love to try the essential oils as well as perhaps the acne toner. 🙂

  159. I don’t know what to pick! All their products look great! I am trying to switch over to all natural everything so their site is a wonderful resource.

  160. I’d like to try the Himalayan Pink Grapefruit Tea Tree Pedi-Scrub

  161. I just love what this “company” stands for!! I would first try the baby products for my brand new grandson!!! I love REAL products, and normally just make them myself, but often run out of time……..this is a solution!

  162. Any of the therapeutic bath salts for detoxifying would be great, they have such a variety!

  163. I would most like to try the hair and body bar. We are definitely wanting to find natural, healthy sources to use on both and to have just one item would be great!
    I also liked the facial serum, would love to try that.

  164. Wow! This is a great giveaway. I would love to try some of these products. Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  165. I’m pregnant with my second and 5.5 years ago when my first was born I didn’t know any better than to use the famous yellow baby wash. I would love to try their baby skin care for my new one, now that we’ve eliminated chemicals from our personal care!

  166. I love hand made soap! I’d really like to try their bug repellant as we have so many bugs here in VT!

  167. I really want to try the bug spray from Apple Valley. I have tried lots of different versions and want to find a natural bug repellent.

  168. I want to know more about shampoo bars and am reading their blog post on it right now, so I would definitely try those.

    Thanks so much.

  169. I love jojoba oil so will definitely be trying that. I would also like to try te essential oils, the shampoo and body bar and most of the baby products.

  170. I would try the jojoba oil. I use coconut oil as a facial moisturizer most of the time, but it gets a little greasy for daytime use and I’ve heard that jojoba is a little lighter.

  171. I currently use their soap and LOVE them. I would really like to give Facial Serum a try. I currently use an oil blend I make, but it’s still in the “testing” stages.

  172. I would love to try their facial products especially. I haven’t found anything completely natural that I really love and I am not completely satisfied with the OCM especially now that I am pregnant.

  173. I battle acne constantly so I’d love to try the Acne Battle Bar, Organic Acne Battle Toner, and Organic Balancing Facial Serum

  174. I would love to try the shampoo bars. I used one when I had really short hair and haven’t found one that works well since I grew it out, but they’re so convenient for travel!

  175. Thank you for the chance at this fabulous giveaway! I would most like to try the vanilla body polish. It is summer, which means shorts, which means shaving more often. Shaving is so much easier when I use a scrub!

  176. I would love to win this soap! We are almost out of soap, and until I learn to make my own, we’ll need to buy more. 🙂

  177. I would love to try the Gardeners Scrubby Citrus Basil Bar. It sounds lovely and I do indeed spend lots of time in the garden!

  178. I would love to try the essential oils! I read about essential oils to perk you up in the morning and would love to try it!

  179. The liquid castile soap. I would love to have an alternative to store-bought hand soap without making my own.

  180. I started ordering from AVN after the time you posted about it before… I love their soaps. I thought my favorite scent would be Bella Rose, but I really love the Chamomile and Orange Blossom bar. The kiddos love Honey Wheat. I would love to try the facial serum!

  181. I would dearly love to try all of these products as I try and use only organic, thank you for the opportunity – this is a wonderful giveaway!

  182. I would love the foaming hand soap in the dispenser. My present foam dispensers do not work well but I can’t justify the money to replace them so I would love to win one (or two or three).

  183. I would love to win the Apple Valley Natural Soap gift certificate. I have been trying to convert the family to all natural foods and hygiene products and this would go far for us.

  184. With a sensitive-skinned little boy, I am very excited about the baby wash and gentle calendula and cocoa butter soaps!

  185. I would really like to try the Peppermint Tea Tree Shampoo and Body Bar, I’ve never used a shampoo and body bar before and peppermint and tea tree are two of my favorite oils!

  186. Oops, my last comment can be deleted forgot to add what I’d love to try. Their baby soaps and oil as well as shampoo for me.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  187. I would love to try the shampoo bars…we have been experimenting with homemade shampoos, and havent found the quite the right method yet.

  188. I would love to try the creamy butter lotion bar. I like to use lotions, but know they contain not the best ingredients because of the need for preservatives. I would love to find an alternative that I would like to use every day.

  189. I just ordered two sample bars from them for my 3 yr old son with sensitive skin and they work amazingly well! The next product I want to get is the baby wash for my little one due in September.

  190. Organic Foaming hand soap in Orange Blossom would be awesome to try out! I am so in need of new soaps!!

  191. I would love to try the Cocoa Butter and Vanilla Bean Face and Body Bar. It sounds luxurious and great for dry skin.

  192. I am starting to look into switching to more natural products,so it’s great to hear that you like their brand of products so much! It’s way overwhelming figuring out where to start. Thank you do much!

  193. Thanks for hosting another great giveaway! The Wheat and Honey Almond Shampoo and body bar looks great!

  194. I would really like to try the castile soap. I keep hearing all the benefits of it, but for some reason, have yet to get any.

  195. I already know I love their soaps, but I’d like to try the argan oil and the lime spa jojoba oil.

  196. So many great looking items on the Apple Valley website! I’m intrigued by the shampoo and body bar. The Latte Brunette and Silky Patchouli both look heavenly!

  197. There are so many I would love to try! I’m interested in the foaming hand soap because I have such bad eczema on my hands from the constant washing that comes with Mommy duties. Also, the bars of soap for cleaning the kids since they have my sensitive skin!

  198. I’ve tried 2 different brands of essential oils, I’d like to try this one. I see they have a creamy butter lotion bar, I make my own but would be interested in trying this 1 🙂 so many delightful things to try 🙂

  199. I would love to try their products. We’ve used Dr. Bronner’s, too, and I really dislike that packaging.

  200. I’d love to try the foaming hand soap as well as the facial serum though it looks like that is being discontinued. I am always on the hunt for a good moisturizer for my aging skin!

  201. The Shampoo and body bars. I’m having a really hard time finding a shampoo that works for my hair and water type (hard water).

  202. I really want to try the face care products. I have been struggling with my skins being super oily for year. Since we moved to Florida, last month, my skin got really dry, but I am breaking out like crazy!

  203. Hmmm I’d love to try their Balancing Facial Serum; I’m in the market for a new facial moisturizer! Or just some bar soap – why not try their specialty? It all looks like it would smell fantastic 🙂

  204. I’ve used their soaps in the past (love!) and I would like to try the bath salts. I’ve heard it is good for psoriasis and my elbows are always itchy and flaking.

  205. I really want to try out their Castile Soap b/c I agree with you about the weird sayings on the Dr Bronner’s bottles.

  206. Would love to be able to try some of their products! I had a hard time picking from their site, but I like the idea of the Lavender Hydrosol used with the organic facial serum. 🙂

  207. Definitely the creamy butter lotion bar. My husband and I both have dry skin and this sounds perfect.

  208. I would like to try their all natural bug repellent because I hate all the bad stuff in commercial products.

  209. I would love to try Grapefruit Peppermint Luffa Body Bar because it sounds like it would smell amazing!

  210. I would really be interested in trying their shampoo and body bars. I’ve been “no poo” for a year now and love what I’m doing but this would be great to try when my hair gets dry or to help the DH take the plunge!

  211. I am usually very skeptical about acne treatments but I have bad skin and the acne battle toner sounds like something I would like to try.

    1. Oops – forgot to mention the why… I want to try the shampoo bar, mainly because I’m still trying to find a natural shampoo that I like the way it leaves my hair. And also, I meant body bars – not lotion bars. Sorry! 🙂

  212. I’d LOVE to try the Simply Shea Shampoo & Body Bar. I’ve tried no poo and unscented shampoos & they just aren’t cutting it!
