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.
