Make Your Own Inexpensive Shampoo Bars

Another very easy recipe – this time for inexpensive shampoo bars.

Like the D.I.Y. deodorant, this incredibly easy to make, mostly with household ingredients, and makes for very soft hair.

There are a couple of versions with different oils you may try. I’ve so far only used coconut oil and I love it.

Simply mix all ingredients, press into forms, wait for 24 hours and use.

Instead of coconut oil, you can also use cacao butter or shea butter.

You may add some essential oils too, if you like (just check before that you’re not allergic).

Lavender is good if you have dry hair, lemon for blonde hair, camomile for an itchy scalp, rosemary for greasy hair – but you may also just choose one that you like the smell of 🙂


20g coconut oil
50g starch
50g SLSA (Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate) or SCI (Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate)


  1. Melt coconut oil
  2. Mix SLSA and starch. Put on a mask, to avoid breathing in the soap powder.
  3. Add coconut oil and mix all ingredients with your hands.
  4. Add essential oils if you like.
  5. Press into (silicone) forms and let rest for at least 24 hours.

Enjoy your new shampoo bars!

Here are some pictures from the last time I made the shampoo bars.

Get Your Personal Wheel of Colours

The Wheel of Colours is a traditional tool that can help us to understand what we need in certain situations.

We are all made up out of the same stuff, but everything is arranged uniquely in each person – which leads to us all needing different things in different moments.

If you’d like to find out what YOU need to start a project, to work with other people, to successfully finish something, to heal, to spark your creativity or what your unique gift is that you bring to the world, then the Wheel of Colours will help you to see this and yourself in a new and very practical way.

It will also show you how you can listen to your inner truth and that of others, what your most important lesson is and also what your most difficult challenge will be, that once you overcome it will bring you to the completion of your wheel – and allow you to start again in a smoother, more enlightened and balanced way.

🌈 You have the power to create your reality.

Clarity - Confidence - Connection

In the CREATRIX School we bring clarity, confidence and connection into every area of our lives - and we look at a different topic each month.

This month is all about self-actualization, making sure we have no regrets in life, and discovering all we could possibly be and want in life.

It's fun, it's exciting, and it is surely also challenging, as we have to become honest about our wants, needs and desires.
