Elements of Essence Handmade Soaps

DIRECTIONS FOR USE - HAND SOAP BAR

Wet soap with warm water and work into a lather. Rinse thoroughly. Boost the skin moisturising lather with a sponge or our pure wool felted soap envelope. Keep drained and the soap dry when not in use with a soap dish.  Or, keep your wool soap envelope dry and use this as a place to store. 
Caution:  As with all soap products avoid contact with eyes. If product gets into eyes, rinse well with clean water. If rash or irritation occurs, stop use and consult physician. For external use only. Keep out of reach of children.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE - SHAMPOO SOAP BAR

Wet your hair and rub the bar over the hair to create a creamy lather. You will need to use plenty of water. If you feel there isn't enough lather, just add more water, that should do the trick!  Some people like to use a diluted cider vinegar as a conditioning rinse also. Put a splash of vinegar in a jug of water and use it after rinsing all of the shampoo out of your hair. As you pour it over your hair you will notice how your hair becomes immediately soft and silky. Then do a final rinse.
If you are using an all-natural shampoo bar for the first time, it may take some time for your hair and scalp to get used to is as it goes through a period of "detox". It takes a while for the chemicals that have build up on your hair to be washed out and your scalp may also take some time to get back to producing its natural amount of sebum again. During this time your hair may feel a little greasy, dull or drier than usual. Please persevere - it'll be worth it!  Please also be aware that not all shampoo bars are natural. Most of the round discs made with little noodles may contain chemicals (e.g. SLS) which are found in many liquid shampoos which is not only terrible for you, but also for the aquatic system.
Caution: As with all soap products avoid contact with eyes. If product gets into eyes, rinse well with clean water. If rash or irritation occurs, stop use and consult physician. For external use only. Keep out of reach of children.
