New Shampoo Bar and Dish Soap!

Great news! There are now new varieties of my most popular items; the shampoo bar and dish soap!

Let's start with the shampoo bar because hair > dishes!

A lifetime ago (really it was only three weeks but it seems like a lifetime) we were in Hawaii on the Big Island. Our first morning there we had breakfast at the hotel restaurant and I ordered a papaya. I promise this is about a shampoo bar, I'm just setting the scene.

Oh. My. Gawd. That papaya was the best thing ever! I felt like James Cook must have felt after landing in Hawaii and tasting the fruit. Needless to say I had papayas every morning I was there. One morning, as I was removing the seeds, I had an epiphany. Why do we throw papaya seeds away? Are they good tasting? Yes, I ate one. Are they good for you? Hells yes! I googled it. Then I wondered, are they good for your skin and hair!? A double hells yes to that! I decided right then and there that when I returned home I was making a shampoo bar with papaya seeds.

I was hoping to make one with the seeds whole but buying whole seeds was not going to happen. The best I could do was get ground seeds.

With out further ado, let me introduce you to the new Orange and Papaya Shampoo Bar. Like all my products, this bar is scented with pure essential oils, in this case, orange. This bar also has all the hair loving ingredients of my other shampoo bars, like avocado butter, coconut oil, and aloe vera water, however, this bar also has a few tablespoons of ground papaya seeds which color the bar a beautiful chocolate brown.

Papaya seeds contain a protein called papain which is great for strengthening hair and promoting healthy growth. Some say papaya seeds help hair grow faster as well.

The new Orange Papaya Shampoo Bar is available now in my etsy store or on my website!

Now, on to the new dish bar...

I was pleasantly surprised how well my Lemon Dish Bar cleaned and sold. Apparently there are many people out there looking for an alternative to plastic oil-laced dish detergent. Because of that I decided to offer a new scent! It's the same bar, just a new scent; rosemary mint to be exact. Again, this bar is scented only with pure essential oils and the rosemary mint scent is so fresh and divine!

The Rosemary Mint Solid Dish Bar is also now available in my etsy store or my website!
