Are you familiar with shampoo bars? I didn’t know about them until recently, but now that I do… I love them!

Rosemary and Mint Essential Oils Shampoo Bar Recipe

Shampoo bars are growing in popularity. This is partially due to the fact that they’re eco-friendly – in more ways than one!

They’re easier to transport than plastic bottles and, if you make your own, they have both earth-friendly ingredients and no plastic to recycle when you’re done.

Shampoo bars make fantastic gifts for all occasions too – whether it’s for a birthday, winter holidays, Mother’s Day – you name it!

They’re also incredibly easy to make at home and customize to have whatever scents you (or the gift recipient) would like!

A great place to get started is with my Rosemary and Mint Essential Oils Shampoo Bar Recipe. Rosemary and mint are a great combination for your shampoo bar.

The mint leaves you smelling and feeling fresh. The rosemary is great for dry scalp. These two smells also wonderfully complement each other.
