    Old Fashioned Original Shampoo Bar (3.5 oz)

    Getting through security at the airport is a breeze when you are traveling with all solids! Hello plastic-free and stress-free travel shampoo bars! These shampoo bars are easy to pack while being packed with wonderful ingredients for your hair! Without the use of harsh chemicals, these magical bars will keep your locks shiny and healthy. Since it is not a liquid, each bar offers the approximate number of usages as a 24 ounce bottle of most modern shampoos. This shampoo bar is very versatile. They also serve as a mild body soap, work wonderfully for all your shaving needs, and are great for washing dishes while camping!

    J.R.LIGGETT’s unique bar shampoo is made with 100% vegetable oil formulated to give you healthy and beautiful hair. The bar lathers quickly, cleans well, and rinses out easily, which will not strip the natural oils from your hair (there are no detergents). For this reason, most people do not even need a conditioner!

    The formula for this incredible and unique bar of shampoo was discovered loosely placed in an old New England Cookbook many years ago by J.R.LIGGETT. This is the cornerstone of their fine line of bar shampoos that over the years have proven themselves over and over to a countless number of loyal users.

    Directions for use: Always wet hair and bar first, then rub the bar directly onto your hair until you get the level of lather you want. For long hair bring the rest of your hair up to the top of your head and lather all together. Scrub hair and scalp thoroughly and immediately rinse. Always rinse with warm, not hot, water. An ACV (apple cider vinegar) wash can be used after shampooing with the bar if you feel a need for it. Mix about a tablespoon of ACV with about a cup of warm water.

    After shampooing and rinsing, apply the ACV wash to your hair and let it sit for a couple of minutes, then rinse it out. The smell of vinegar will completely dissipate when your hair is dried. After showering with the ACV rinse, it is often easier to comb your hair than when using commercial leave-in conditioners!

    J.R.LIGGETT’S Original Formula is made from: olive oil, coconut oil, castor oil, and sunflower oil.

    Plastic-Free Beeswax Sandwich Wrap

    Wrap your sandwich for lunch on the go. This sustainable sandwich wrap is perfect for grownups and kids! Build your sandwich, fold in the corners and wrap string around the wooden bee button. This wonderful wrap can also be used as a placemat.  Bee’s Wrap® is the natural alternative to plastic wrap for food storage.

    Product Highlights:

    • 1 sandwich wrap is 13” x 13” (33 cm x 33 cm)
    • Made of beeswax, organic cotton, organic jojoba oil and tree resin. This combination of ingredients has natural antibacterial properties, and creates a malleable food wrap that can be used again and again.

    HOW TO USE: Simply use the warmth of your hands to soften and form Bee’s Wrap. The wrap can be used around a piece of food, over a bowl, or to cover a casserole dish (do not use with raw meat). The wrap will hold its shape when it cools, creating a seal.  Wash in COOL water with a mild dish soap. Let air dry. Reuse.

    Bee’s Wrap lasts for up to a year with proper care and regular usage. You’ll know your wrap has reached the end of its useful life in the kitchen when it has worn thin and soft and has trouble sticking to itself. At this time, you can cut your wrap into strips and add to your compost pile, or use as a natural and effective fire starter.
