Hello beautiful friends, welcome back to our blog!

You may have seen them on the website already but we just wanted to make sure EVERYONE knows about our newest product…Shampoo and Conditioner Bars! We are so so proud of these and we can’t wait for you all to try them!

These little guys are amazing, they are super hydrating and packed with essential oils which will cleanse and nourish your hair. Each bar is pH balanced to suit your hair type. We have three variants available to make sure we take of you and your individual hair types needs!

The Shampoo Bars come in a 100g size and the Conditioner Bars are 70g. These bars are amazing value and last you much longer than a liquid formula, it’s much more cost efficient. The average liquid Shampoo is made from 80% WATER, where as a Shampoo Bar is highly concentrated and is less than 12% water! Imagine paying for “Shampoo” that is mostly just water in a fancy plastic bottle…ridiculous! Speaking of, unlike plastic bottles, these bars are packed in a fully recyclable and biodegradable package! #ecofriendly

If you suffer from dry scalp conditions I strongly recommend you try the Hemp Seed Oil Hydrating Shampoo Bar and the matching Conditioner Bar. Firstly hemp seed oil smells incredible, super refreshing, but it also helps to stimulate your hair growth! The secret ingredient is the Neem Oil and Karanja Seed Extract which help to relieve sensitive and itchy scalps.

If you are anything like me and you straighten or blow dry your hair far too often or maybe your hair is more on the frizzy side, you must try the Mandarin + Cedarwood Strengthening Shampoo Bar and matching Conditioner Bar. The smell is so sweet and spicy at the same time! The secret ingredient in this bar is the Hydrolysed Oats which bring back life and strength to your hair. The combo of Shea Butter, Coconut Oil and Cocoa Butter will leave your hair silky and smooth.

For those lucky enough to have simple normal hair, your match is the Rosewater Cleansing Shampoo Bar and the Moisturising Conditioner Bar. Rosewater is traditional yet beautiful and will help to thoroughly wash and cleanse your hair. The addition of coconut oil and olive oil will moisturise your hair and scalp.

MY TOP TIPS FOR USE

Using these bars is a little different than a traditional Shampoo or Conditioner so these are my recommendations:

– Make sure you store your bars away from direct water flow. If you want your bars to last a long time don’t let them get too wet when you’re not using them.

– Ensure your hair is properly wet! I find if my hair is not wet enough it will not massage into my hair as well because remember, this formula doesn’t contain nearly as much as water as normal shampoo does!

– To apply the Shampoo, first lather the bar in your hands as you would with a bar of soap then massage the product into the hair with your hands, starting at the roots and working downwards.

– To apply the Conditioner, warm the bar in your hands with water until the bar softens and a smooth cream forms. Use your fingers or a wide tooth comb to detangle your hair with the conditioner in.

Hello Freshwater Farm Blog, how are you today?

Having a nice hot bath is the ULTIMATE way to relax and unwind and we want to show you how to do it right! These are our top 5 must have items for the perfect luxury bath. 

CANDLES

Candles are an obvious must for a luxury bath! They always seem to create such calming atmosphere. Pick your favourite scent, light the candles once the bath is run and arrange them around the tub. Lavender is the perfect scent for relaxation or try a citrus blend to clear the mind. Peppermint is also great for stress!

WOODEN BATH TABLE

A wooden table that runs over the top of the tub is a great way to take your bath time to the next level. It can be used to hold your favourite bath products, a hand towel, a book or even a glass of wine. 😜 You can buy a table like this in many homeware stores but if you want to save some money buy a wooden panel (a floor board/deck panel) from a DIY or Hardware store like Bunnings, have it cut to the width of your tub and ta dah you have a bath table ready to go!

FRESHWATER FARM BODY BARS

Now of course we had to throw in at least one of our products in here but I really do mean it when I say our Freshwater Farm Body Bars are truly a luxury bath must have item! They are available in so many stunning scents which will ensure you feel relaxed and refreshed. These body bars also produce the creamiest lather, making your skin feel super nourished and soft.

EXFOLIATOR

An exfoliator is the perfect addition for a luxury bath. Removing all of that dead skin away and revealing the new smooth skin below is such a lush feeling. Those with normal skin types should exfoliate around 3 or 4 times a week. Exfoliators come in many forms including a pumice block/stone, body scrubs, exfoliating mitts and exfoliating soap bars like our delicious Coffee Polishing Body Bar.

BUBBLE BATH MIXTURE

Finally, adding bubbles is the final step for that perfect luxury bath! Add a generous pour of your favourite bubble bath mix whilst the water is still running and watch those bubbles form. If you don’t have any bubble bath around you can also use a few pumps your favourite liquid wash to create a beautiful scent and give the water that smooth feel.

We hope these items help you to have the most indulging bath time EVER! Comment below your favourite way to relax!
