These delicious smelling shampoo bars are handmade right here in Seattle! They are chock full of wonderful ingredients, starting with a base of babassu oil, chamomile-infused sunflower oil. Our soap maker tells us they have a bit of a cult following at her farmer's market stand!
They are palm oil free, paraben- and sulfate-free, and scented with essential oils. Most of the ingredients are organic as well! The only animal product in them is the raw honey, which is from a small, organic local beekeeper in Everett.
Sunny grove is scented with lemon, lemongrass and tea tree essential oils and is reminiscent of a bright sunny day. Refresh is more herbal and refreshing, scented with basil, peppermint and rosemary essential oils.

I wanted to love this bar, but I couldn't. I tried it for 2 weeks. When my hair dried, it was dull and covered in a thick layer of residue. I tried using less shampoo, rinsing it for longer. Nothing worked. My hair felt dirtier right after my showers than it would after 3 days of not washing it. Oh well. I suppose I can use it as body wash, but I don't really want a layer of residue on my body either. I got the "Refresh" version
When I switched to shampoo bars I started out using Friendly from the UK. It worked great but I wanted something closer to home/lower carbon footprint. The sage on the mountain bar finally was my local match! I have fine but curly hair so I need a carefully balanced bar to cut down frizz but without too much oil. These bars are perfect, no nasty residue and the sent is wonderful. Warning, the first couple of times I used the bar the scent was strong, but the smell after washing and when your hair is dry is mild so don't worry.
Absolutely love this shampoo bar. Leaves all hair types from thin and straight, to curly, to thick and wavy - feeling and smelly great. Great alternative to bottled, everyday shampoo.
Love this shampoo bar! It's an easy lather and will last a long time.
At first I was worried it smelled to strong but my washed hair smelled amazing when I got out of the shower. It dried super clean and soft. The shampoo even had a nice satisfying foam to it
