Hair journey continued!
There is a great debate about hair products out there… one being that the ph. of soap-based shampoo is too high and possibly damaging. My mom colors her hair and I wanted to make something a little more color friendly. I also have greys coming in. We shall see if I plan to color my hair in the near future.
My goal as always is to find mild and naturally derived ingredients. Thus Shampoo #4, #5, #6 and #7 were born! These are made with very mellow naturally derived ingredients that will rinse well. I will tell you I still use soap-based shampoos and occasionally use these new ones. Not only to test them out but to help with soap build up. Soon I will get a nice removable shower head that will also help rinse all this thick hair.
These are naturally “derived” ingredients. Not found in nature as they are human made from plants and if you are like me you are going to want to question anything that is not easily pronounced.
Here is a breakdown of the ingredients below found in my shampoo bar 4-7 if you have any questions please let me know!
Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate- is ECOcert, gentle on sensitive skin, 100% natural surfactant and sulfate free, derived from coconut and palm oil. *this is the only item derived from palm you will find on my site. I do not agree with using palm in large quantities with all the controversy over the deforestation harvests.
Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate - Sulfate free, 100% natural origin, green and biodegradable. Derived from coconut oil.
Cocamidopropyl Betaine- Derived from coconut, sulfate free and gentle.
Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Butylene Glycol and Cetyl Alcohol - Yes that did say "Sulfate" but it's nothing like you see in most products this is an "quaternary ammonium salt derived from the natural plant oil colza" (canola/ rapeseed), conditioning, great for detangling, smooth feel, fatty alcohol, glycol solvent and environmentally friendly."
Panthenol- is provitamin B5, not derived from animals, no animal byproducts and is cruelty free.
Glyceryl Monocaprylate and glyceryl monoundecylenate- EcoCert natural preservative, made from coconut oil, and paraben free.
If you do color your hair, I would recommend Shampoo #4- #7. Although some can still use soap-based shampoo on colored hair. Haircare is a journey and each their own.
I would love to hear about your experiences please comment below.

What gemstones best fit you or your Capricorn?
Don't you want one less thing to worry about?
Shopping should be included in that. Sure, there will always be this or that to run to the grocery store and buy, but what if soap wasn't included on that list. Better yet, what if it was high-quality soap that was made with the finest ingredients and best scents?
Here are some great reasons to have a soap subscription:
1. It's a great excuse to try new things!
I don't mean to push, but I got to ask: how often do you try some brand-new soap when shopping at the store? If you don't, that makes sense. You're probably sticking with what you usually like.
The great thing about a soap subscription is that because somebody else is picking the products, it allows you to try bars you'd never know to pick. I had a member who told me that Sweet Grass Soap would've been the last thing she ordered, but then I put one in her Soap of the Month club subscription, and now she can't get enough of it!
2. You don't have to shop for soap at the store.
If you hate grocery shopping, you're not alone! So why not make it just a tad shorter and cut the trip to the soap aisle to shop for bars! Shipping soap brings the convenience to your doorstep or mailbox. Even better, you don't have to shuffle in the crowded lanes of a store.
3. Sometimes, you get a nice surprise too!
I am so excited to share with you the latest gifts and fun items at Wisdom Body and Soul!
There is nothing better than surprises! Treat yourself to gifts of relaxation and new items you didn't know your couldn't live without!
That's not the only time that I send them a cute and fun gift!
I always like to pack in an extra surprises with my collection subscriptions. Or maybe I'll give them a soap holder so their bars don't melt in the shower. A little appreciation for all subscribers goes a long way, and they'd agree with that.

There's nothing I want to do more than R-E-L-A-X this year. That's my newest collection of soaps is all about making calm a reality for 2021. Sure, the madness of COVID and politics will still be around, but I can offer you a respite from the crazy with my newest products.
Sweet Grass Soap (Pictured Above)
Who doesn't love the smell of sweet grass in the air? It's smells like the Earth taking a shower and cleaning itself off. My Sweet Grass Soap gives you the refreshing scent that emboldens your senses to feel happier, healthier, and more grateful for the day.
Now go outside and play in a big field of grass! All while social distancing, of course. Purchase it here.
Wake up sleepyhead! The sun is out, and so are the better days.
This soap combines the sweetly scents of lemon, lemongrass, and frankincense to create a bar that makes you want to open up the windows and enjoy our favorite natural light peeking out from above the mountains. Lemon is one of my favorite scents to work with, as the cirtus-y smells are always an immediate mood booster. Purchase it here.
"The Force" Soap Set
Did I mention that everyone in my family are huge "Star Wars" nerds? This soap was a big hit for them, and it will be for you too!
It's an adorable set of "Star Wars"-related designs (Millennium Falcon, Darth Vader, stormtrooper, and Han Solo) that makes for a perfect gift for the kids, or just that general sci-fi geek in your life. Purchase it here.
Let's hear it for all the mommas!
They put up with so much stress and responsibilities. More importantly, they get things done. But I get it -- sometimes Moms can feel like a nag or frustrate you.
However, one of my favorite mindset techniques is to take something that angers me and flip it around to think about how I can be grateful for it. I encourage you to do the same for Mom.
You might be asking how; well, here are 3 reasons why you should be nice to Mom:
1. They care about you.
There is nobody else that has your back more than Mom; probably not even Dad. She's taken care of you from before day one. If there is one person we should be forever thankful for once we get older, it's them.
So treat them like a queen! Buy your mom gifts (usually comfortable ones) and remind her that her needs come first now.
2. They shield you from stress.
Isn't it crazy how innocent childhood is? Like, as a kid our parents never let us know about the bills or jobs or anything stressful. In fact, it's the duty of a parent to not let their kid know of what's going on! At least that's the opinion of this momma.
Without Moms, childhood would seem a lot more stressful, in my opinion. "The Good 'Ol Days" would be seen as another chapter in stress city.
3. They do all they can, with no sleep!
I can't do anything without eight hours of sleep. Like, wake me up off of seven hours and I might as well be a sack of potatoes on the couch. But in those moments where I do have to Mom up and take care of my kids in the middle of the night, I feel like a determinator. Nothing will stop me from doing what I can to make my kids' life better.
So remember that Moms deserve all the sleep they can get! Help them rest with a Wisdom Body & Soul eye pillow!
I could not be more stressed from Christmas shopping.
What does my sister want? What do my parents want? What do my children want? Instead of trying to sift through questions and gift ideas, ask yourself this question: what do YOU want?
If the answer sounds something like "Relaxation", then this is the blog for you! Here are a few solid tips to de-stress and make The Most Wonderful Time of the Year actually wonderful.
1. Calm down with Essential Oils & Diffusers
Don't you want to chill out a little bit? My favorite thing about essential oils are in how immediate and strong they feel. One whiff of a great scent and man, it feels like the relaxation just takes over your body. Put a few drops in a diffuser to spread the happiness throughout the house.
Looking for a place to start your essential oil journey? I'm happy to be your Kringle of Calm! Wisdom Body & Soul offers scents that embody fruit, fall, the desert or winter. Find them here!
2. Get one hour of extra sleep a day!
I don't have scientific proof of this, but I do have my own experience. Ever since I made it a point to go to bed one hour earlier a day, my mood improved so much. I feel much more ready to take on the day, and avoid those crabby periods that pop up when I'm tired.
Another thing that helped me snooze? Draping an eye pillow over my face and letting it take effect. This eye pillow did such a good job that I felt like making them for everyone!
3. Take a nice warm bath once a week!
Do you ever think of a warm bath and just exhale with happiness? But don't treat it like some far-off fantasy you'd only find in a spa: do it yourself! It helps your skin relax, and always leaves me feeling so refreshed.
My favorite part is when I use bath bombs or wash myself down with one of my bars of soap, it feels like the stress was never there.
