I created a natural and Vegan shampoo bar called Solibar… 🌿

Sitting at home one afternoon, I was watching my daughter (one) play with her toys, most of which are made from plastic in one way or another. It got me thinking.

The world we live in today is all about the end result. We choose products for the desired outcome without considering the consequences of these products and furthermore their effect on our health or the environment. 🌿

There are chemical additions to everything we eat, we use, we clean and even we wear. These chemicals are the bad guys. And whilst they have allowed us to achieve a higher form of convenience, they are resulting in a lower form of health.

Born out of the need to find a product that doesn’t contain unnecessary chemicals for my toddler, I created a shampoo bar called Solibar.

Solibar is a natural and Vegan shampoo bar that is designed to moisturise your hair whilst giving you the amazing benefits of natural ingredients.

As a baseline, all of my Solibar’s contain coconut oil, olive oil, castor oil and shea butter. Where they differ is the inclusion of super ingredients like zinc, Alkanet Root, French Pink Clay, and French Yellow Clay – which are all incredible ingredients designed to promote hair growth and keep sensitivities at bay.

The best part – they’re all handmade in Melbourne! Which makes them individually unique but loveable at the same time.

I wanted to create a shampoo bar that was going to:

shampoo your hair in the same way as conventional shampoo 🧖🏼‍♀️

be the best option for healthy haircare & not contain any nasties 🌴

decrease the need for conditioner, by creating a bar that is moisturising 💆‍♂️ 

not contribute to the already increasing rubbish created by plastic bottles 🌿


So, if you’ve thought about making the switch to a healthy haircare alternative – now is the time to do it. Head to the website and check out my (And the pics below)

Ps: sorry I’ve been busy but I’ve had a kid / started a shampoo bar brand. #MumLife

My favourite Bliss Balls 

Since I’ve now got my own kitchen and I can finally experiment with my cooking.

I’ve got loads of favourite recipes, but I thought I would share this one with you. Additionally it makes it easy for me to find it again.

My favourite Bliss Balls have been adapted from a few recipes that I have read recently. As I’m trying to reduce added sugar where possible, I’ve cut a few items from my initial recipe.

You will need:

  • 2 cups Almond Meal
  • 2 teaspoons of Cacao
  • Approx. 12-15 pitted Dates, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons Coconut Oil
  • 2 splashes of Vanilla Essence 
  • 1 cup or so of shredded or desiccated Coconut
  • 2 tablespoons of Chia seeds
  • Water

The next step is to mix it all together in a bowl till combined. Depending on the consistency of the mixture you may require more water or Almond Meal. 

Roll them into teaspoon sized balls, and coat with Coconut for decoration. Refridgerate before serving.

And here is what they look like:

But they taste better than they look…
