I’m sure by now y’all know how enamored I am with soapberries. They’re like the more well-known soapnuts, but grown right here in the U.S. I’ve read that many native Americans and later European settlers used these soapberries as, well, SOAP.
But a couple of years ago I became aware that you could infuse water with these soapberries and make shampoo. Wait, SHAMPOO??
I’ve been using my own homemade soapberry shampoo ever since. It’s does a great job of cleaning, is gentle, natural, and leaves my hair feeling great. Plus there’s no plastic waste like there was when I was buying and using commercial shampoo. You know that makes my crunchy-green heart happy, y’all!
So to celebrate Throwback Thursday I’m sharing my soapberry success story. Check it out.
