Shampoo Bar v 1.0

5 oz. bar of Dr Bronners, shredded fine
Set aside

1 oz coconut oil
1 oz shea butter
0.125 oz cocoa butter
0.124 oz beezwax
Melt together.

Add shredded soap in small amounts.

Add 1 Tbsp lemon juice

Add 1 Tbsp boiling water

Stir until well combined.

Add essential oils

Stir

Add to molds lined with wrap. Cool and cure for a few days

This experiment turned out well.  I’m happy to use the bars!  Not a lot of lather, but my hair is cleaned and conditioned!  It also rinses very easily.  The bar dries well overnight on the counter, then I put it in a tin for keeping.  Smells great – I used Rosemary and Mint essential oils.    I will make this again and give it out to friends for more opinions.  Also thinking of lowering the added oils content to see if it helps it lather better.

Orchid Seed Pod

​#OrchidSeeds 

Came out after running this morning to an open (partially) seed pod! In this video, I open it up all the way and you can see the MILLIONS of seeds contained within. How ever, orchids seeds are naked and created without their own nutrition or defense mechanism. They are meant to blow around the forest until landing by chance on a surface, usually a tree trunk or branch, that already has the proper fungus that will support and protect the growth of the seed into a plant. Most orchids for sale are propagated in sterile settings using flasks and nutrient mixes. Unfortunately, I completely waste these millions of seeds by sprinkling them all over the mother plant, hoping by some small chance she has kept a supply of that particular fungus nearby. I WAS gonna join the local orchid society this past spring so they could help me find a place to flask them, but my antisocial nature kept me away. Maybe next time 👻 Thanks for reading. #plants #orchids #botany #fungus #nature #seeds #pollination #flasking
