Tonight I tried my hand at making my own shampoo, and although it was only one shower with it, so far I’m pretty impressed!

1 15oz can of coconut milk
1/2 bar of Kirks Castile Soap (grated)
1 tsp vitamin E oil
1/2 tsp grapefruit seed oil
Essential Oils to your liking (I used orange and tangerine)

I grated up the Kirks and slightly melted it into the coconut milk. Added all the oils and shook up in a previously used shampoo bottle and tada! Shampoo! If I had Dr. Bronners liquid castile soap I would have used 1/4 cup of that instead, but the grated soap works well. I like Kirks because it has coconut oil in it. It lathered up nicely and I didn’t use any conditioner and my hair is smooth and soft and smells great!

If the Mrs approves of it then I’ll be making it in the future! Going to try my hand at some body soap after we run out of our current stuff.
