Long time no blog!

Well after skimming through my website, I noticed it has been a while since I last "blogged". Anybody that knows me, knows I'm not a blogger, as one that does not know me can tell!!

What is new at Tigre Mountain Soap...that's what I want to talk about. There are a couple of new soaps: Lavender & Lemongrass, thank you to my customer that requested this...it is such a hot bar at the Farmer's Market!!! It really does smell that good (shameless plug) if I do say so myself.

Also I have been doing a "Fall soap" every year and this year's concoction has turned out so wonderful!! Just think pumpkin pie and you nailed it. I use cinnamon, clove, orange, pine and honey in this warm fuzzy feeling bar. It is not listed on the website under soaps, but if you are interested just email me.

Speaking of fall, this is the time I am gearing up to make new things in the soap studio. It will be in full swing during the winter so that I can debut in the spring when all things are new. If anyone has a special request, yes I do custom orders or any suggestions please send me an email. I love to hear from my customers!

Also, Tigre Mountain Soap has a new business card. Years in the making really, LOL !!  I spelled out the word Viriditas which was coined by Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179), a woman ahead of her time way back then. She used this word to describe the "greening power of god", a divine life force within all creation, giving it life, moisture and vitality. I love this word because to me it refers to all things growing in nature.

I'm so pleased you found my shampoo bar at Mount Magazine (nice place). I too have graying hair but have decided to just let it go, but I am 13 yrs older too. I use the shampoo bar, then follow with a light conditioner just because gray hair tends to be on the wirey side, so that extra helps control my flyaway. The shampoo bar does not have any ingredients that would strip your hair, however those shampoos you get in the store for color treated hair have extra ingredients to help color retention. Just a thought...the beer in my bar promotes shiny hair and I tell folks to rinse the suds out with a cooler spray of water in the shower because that will help the hair shaft to seal. I don't know if this would help retain the color? Also, it will take about a week of using the shampoo bar for your hair to "get accustomed" to it. I'd love to hear your feedback and whether it worked/or not for your hair. Thanks for taking the time to comment!!!!

I am sooo glad you like my shampoo bar! I will be at the market this saturday, please introduce yourself so I can put a face to a name. Using a shampoo bar is alittle bit different than using bottle shampoo, sometimes it takes a little bit for you to get used to the way it works, but YES, your hair will be squeaky clean and conditioned at the same time! Anyone that has never tried one should!

Many Thanks!


shampoo bars

Just a short burst of words about shampoo bars. I have wanted to do a shampoo bar for quite sometime. I already use all the right oils, just need to add a little beer and maybe some yucca root. If anyone out there has a idea or comment about shampoo bars please feel free to give a shout on this blog page or at our facebook page. I would love to hear your idea of the perfect shampoo bar!
