Product Rating: 4.8/5 (As per 25 Customer Reviews)
Wash away dirt and oil with our nourishing Shampoo Base. Specifically formulated, it cleanses the hair while restoring shine and manageability.
This base has been specifically formulated to be extremely robust. Essential Oils, fragrant oils, botanical extracts and various raw materials can be added in order to customize each product.
Usage: We recommend that no more than 0.5% or 5 ml of any essential oil be added to a Liter our cosmetic bases. Exceeding this amount may destabilize bonds between the ingredients. Over time this may cause our bases to lose some of their luxurious properties including viscosity, smooth feel and rate of absorption.

Rating: I'm giving three stars for the following reason: we ordered a five gallon bucket, and it was AMAZING. We ordered another one, and it was yellowish and very very thin, nothing like the first. Many customers complained and we had to refund a lot of money. It's like taking a gamble when purchasing this.

Rating: I purchased this and although it is very thick, adding some rose water and EO's and the results were astounding. It lathered perfectly and my hair was bouncy and shiny. Very pleased with this product and will definitely order more.
Rating: This shampoo is amazing! I mixed a bit of clay (disolved in distilled water), spearmint EO, menthol EO, and peppermint EO. It leaves my hair soft, managable, and full of body. My hair is also adds fabulous shine. My family loves it! Great price too!
Rating: My husbands favorite when scented with Maple Sugar or Happy Men! Makes a great body wash, too! washes away clean! love it

Rating: I love this shampoo. I have been using it for quite a while. It takes on my essential oils with gusto. Now if we could just come up with an organic that is SLS and Paraben free that actually has lather, we'll be in business!
Rating: Tried this one because the ultra premium was out of stock, its very light but still high quality. Since I have very thick hair I prefer the ultra premium

Rating: this was amazing! I added rosemary, grapefruit oil and silk peptide and my hair is bouncing!!
Rating: I'm now buying the larger jug. I love this stuff. I recently got a gift certificate for a hair cut at a higher-end salon and the girls couldn't get over how soft my hair was. They were shocked when I told them I make my own hair products.

Rating: I have a customer with oily hair and she hasn't been able to find a shampoo that will keep her hair looking good all day. I bought the shampoo base, added some oils for oily hair and gave her a sample to try. She absolutely loved the results and her hair looked just washed for 2 days!! I have dry hair and again mixed in some oils and I have to admit it's the best shampoo that I've ever used too!! Now all my customers are asking about samples for their hair types!! This is a WONDERFUL all purpose shampoo!!
By:Brenda, Elk Creek, NebraskaDate: Loyal Customer Since: 2009
Rating: I am very picky with my hair and this was great! I look foward to starting a new business with this. :)
Rating: I absolutely love this shampoo base. I mix it with some of the floral waters and E.O's and it makes the best shampoo going. I haven't had an opportunity to sell it as of yet because I have just started to use it but My family and I love it and I know that my customers will too.
It leaves your hair silky and soft and so nice and shinny.Wonderful product.
Rating: I bought this shampoo just for fun. I was going a little nuts with the oils and thought it would be a good idea to have more uses for the oils. I ususally have about 4 different shampoos and conditioners in my shower, and since I got this it's been the only one I've used. It breaks down any build-up without drying out my hair. It feels so clean and soft and light. I really can't believe I got such a quality shampoo for such a great price, and I have the bonus of making it any scent I want!

By:Tily, Sunnyvale, California Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 2006
Rating: It blends well with EOs and FOs and is a good base. Bear in mind it won't produce a lot of foam as of the over the counter shampoo. I blend it with rosemary and patchouli EO and I can feel the hair is smooth and soft after shampooing and blowdrying. Definitely a must item for my family.
Rating: We have try many differnt types of shampoo. Your product is the best we ever used. We used AVEDA (Shampoo), Avalon Organics (Nourishing Shampoo), Bath and Body Works (Aromatherapy Orange Ginger Shampoo), and TRESemme' Shampoo... All of them cause my head to itch and smell after 2 days. Your Shampoo acutally can keep my hair smell free and itch free. We are very impressed.

Rating: This is an awesome shampoo base. My customers rave about it and say it leaves their hair so silky and soft. I will continue to purchase it.
