#26 – Replenish Shampoo Bar

Replenish Shampoo Bar. This was made on June 9th, 2013.

This is another brain child of my friend, Jennett, who asked for a ginger and carrot bar for her hair.

Organic Carrot & Ginger smoothie bar for hydrated smooth locks!

~Made with organic carrot juice and fresh ginger! Replenish your thirsty locks with beta-carotene rich carrots and fresh detoxifying ginger!

I got a bit creative with this one.

Carrot and ginger didn’t smell right on the test strips to me, so I played around with some of my other essential oils. I wanted to work with just essential oils to get something very clean and would smell delicious. I managed to do just that. I added a number of essential oils for a mouth watering bar that makes me think of gingerbread.

The ginger essential oil is great for the hair and helps against dandruff. It’s also good for relieving mental stress. Though cinnamon leaf essential oil is good for the stiffness of muscles, the antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral, and antiseptic properties make this a very cleansing bar. Carrot seed essential oil has antioxidant benefits that will be wonderful for hair and face. It also has added benefits of antiseptic, antiviral, and disinfectant properties, and may even relieve psoriasis sufferers. Lemongrass essential oil has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, but also acts as a deodorant. Last, but not least, Rosemary Essential oil helps hair grow strong and relieves dandruff.

Instead of water to mix with the lye, I added goat’s milk to a blend of carrots and ginger juice – Fresh out of the juicer! The carrots really made the batch a very beautiful shade of orange. To really help with the hair, I added a bit of Vitamin E to this batch and egg yolks – the eggs were from my neighbor’s chickens, so they are from very spoiled chickens! This isn’t a vegan batch, but no goats or chickens were harmed in the making of this soap.
