The first time I used this shampoo, I felt a tingling sensation on my scalp. I had never felt that before, but I knew that it was the nettle powder doing what nettle does best: getting the circulation going. I get a lot of orders for this soap from people who are Russian, because using nettle in one's hair is an old, well loved folk tradition in Russia. Essential oils of peppermint and eucalyptus make it smell fresh and lively. The shampoo also has home grown egg to provide protein. Sweet goat milk nourishes and softens your skin. The dark green nettle powder marbles through each bar, making them look like they've been camouflaged.

A customer named Corinne said this about Nettle Mint: "it is the most effective treatment of dry/itchy scalp I've ever used. T-Gel has nothing on this stuff : ) And the apple cider vinegar rinse has changed my hair forever!"

Shampoo bars are great for travel because they pass easily through airport security, they are small and compact, and there is no danger of them making a mess.

Here is some advice on how to use shampoo bars to have healthy, shiny, chemical free hair:
1. Rub the bar over your ENTIRE scalp and down any long hair in the back. If you just rub on top, there won't be enough soap to lather everywhere.
2. If your soapy hair feels too dry to work into a good lather, simply sprinkle a little more water on top, just enough to moisten the suds a bit.
3. Follow it with a vinegar rinse rather than conventional conditioner. The recipe I use is 1 ounce (60 mL) apple cider vinegar in a 16 ounce (half liter) squirt bottle of water (that amount should last several washings). No, you don't HAVE to do this, but it's good for everyone's scalp, and really important for anyone who has dandruff or other scalp problems. Your skin and hair want to be slightly in the acid side of the pH scale, around 6.8. Soap is on the alkaline side of the scale, around 9. Having the wrong pH causes problems like itchy, dry scalp, and tends to make the scales on your hair turn out, making it rough in stead of smooth. It's not hard to do a vinegar rinse, once you get a squirt bottle and a jug of vinegar in the bathroom. I have found, though, that when traveling, it's not the end of the world if I go a couple of washings without using vinegar.

Nearly everyone loves shampoo bars once they've tried them, but I've had some customers with chemically treated hair have poor results with them. If you have to buy conventional shampoo for treated hair, you probably won't like natural shampoo bars.

Ingredients: olive oil, goat milk, lye, coconut oil, castor oil, free range eggs, stinging nettle powder, essential oils of peppermint, eucalyptus and cedarwood.

4.25 oz I often have double size bars available, which are great because they take twice as long to get used up to the point of being a little stub that's hard to rub on your hair. Look for it in my Shampoo Bars section, and contact me before you buy it to find out if I have the type you want available.

A note about my new system of labeling soap: I am a full time mother, wife, gardener, goat- chicken- and beekeeper, and active member of my church and community. I was getting seriously squeezed for time, to the point that I was considering giving up my soap business--which I really didn't want to do! My husband and my mom helped me brainstorm ways that I could streamline my soap making process without sacrificing the quality of the product or customer service. Getting rid of hand tied bows was at the top of everybody's list. I love the bows and still offer them as an extra option, but the truth is, they are purely aesthetic. I have switched to sticker labels and am loving the time that not tying hundreds of bows has freed up!

My soaps are real soap, made from scratch using the cold-process method of combining fats with lye, not the melt-and-pour type. Notice that all of my ingredients are ones that you recognize, no chemicals that make you wonder what they are or what they do to you! I use many organic ingredients, including organic palm oil. Each bar is unique, hand cut, and hand wrapped. My soap lasts a long time as long as you take care to let it dry out between uses.

About shipping: For customers in the US, I can often save you money on shipping orders of 4 or more bars if you ask me to create a custom listing for you. For international customers, it usually works out that the lowest price I can give you is what you would automatically be charged if you buy items individually. However, it you are buying a variety of types of products, such as bars of soap plus body butter, it might be worth asking me if I can save you on shipping fees with a custom listing.
