Shampoo Bars

I made Shampoo Bars with Coconut Milk, Coconut Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Olive Oil, Castor Oil, Palm Oil, Jojoba Oil and Sweet Almond Oil. I added Henna Powder, Citric Acid and Panthenol, Rosemary EO, Tea Tree EO and Peppermint EO.

I made the mistake of trying to cut them way, way to early so they are going to rest for a few days. I consistently make harder soaps that can be cut the next morning so I wasn’t even thinking about how soft this was going to be until the knife was already in the soap. The rest got almost a week of sitting before I cut them. I used a brand new mold with better insulation and got a bit of overheating in some of these bars, luckily these are just for family.

For shampoo bars most people forgo the use of fragrance oils and colorants. I decided to do the same. The addition of Rosemary, Tea Tree and Peppermint essential oils are more beneficial to hair than a fragrance oil could ever be.

Fall

I’ve been pretty quiet this fall, I got sidetracked with working and reading and maybe a little video game playing, aside from that I have still accomplished a bit. I am making some gift sets for people. Soap, lotion, lip balm, hand salve, bath salt. I have to make up some more bath salts and lotion for the collection to be complete, plus the packaging of gift set. All scented with peppermint oil, cocoa butter and a little bit of vanilla. Plus there are some other random soaps I made on the side, an order of lip balm and a few cranberry deserts.
