ECO FRIENDLY NEW PRODUCTS – Shampoo & Conditioner Bar

We have all been seeing a recent comeback of solid shampoo and conditioner bars. An environmentally friendly option for those wanting to reduce plastic use! So we have had a play and are excited to offer our new all natural Shampoo and Conditioner Bars which have our Eucalyptus and Emu oil in them. These all natural bars are great for the environment and last a lot longer than your normal shampoo & conditioner bottles.

Did you know 552 Million plastic shampoo & conditioner bottles are thrown out annually? With these bars you will save money and of course be helping the environment at the same time.

ADVANTAGES

With the environment always on our mind they are much more eco friendly.

Great for travellers as its compact, convenient and light and no liquid spills.

Helping to reduce our plastics problem.

They are long lasting.

Reducing carbon footprint as you can fit much more if transporting.

The process used to make the cold-pressed versions is very eco-friendly – using very little water and no animal fats.

SHAMPOO BAR

Use the bar just as you would a normal soap. Lather it up with water, and use it directly on the scalp, making sure to rub it in. Massage the scalp with your fingertips to stimulate blood flow and really cleanse the hair and scalp, then rinse well with water. Some people say they dont need a conditioner bar at all. I am imaging this would be more for shorter hair. Click here to buy. (now in convenient tins)

 

Ingredients for Shampoo Bar – Coconut oil, Olive oil, Sunflower oil, Emu oil, Rice Bran oil, Castor oil, Cocoa Butter, Water, Lye, Eucalyptus, May Chang, Green Oxide (colouring).

CONDITIONING BAR

Great for daily use on all hair types including fine, chemically treated/coloured/permed hair.

After washing your hair, take 2 minutes to stroke the conditioner bar over the surface of the hair and pull through the lengths with your hands.  Or create a little lather in your hands and pull through your hair.   Leave for 2 – 5 mins , then rinse. You will feel your hair has been conditioned whilst rinsing. Leave to dry naturally if possible and then style.  You can use styling products if you want.

Our bars have no chemical foaming agents so will not foam. It will leave your hair soft, silky and manageable and very natural.  If you need some further definition and you still want to keep natural, use a tiny amount of olive, coconut or emu oil as a leave-in conditioner.

Rinse well immediately for light conditioning or leave for a few minutes for deep conditioning. Click here to buy.  (now in convenient tins)

Ingredients for Conditioner Bar – Coconut oil, Emu oil, Olive oil, Shae butter, Coconut cream, Centrimonium Chloride, Glycerin, Pearl Essence, Eucalyptus oil,  Cetyl Alcohol, Olive oil, Eucalyptus oil, Lemon Myrtle oil.

Hints: LESS IS BEST! DO NOT USE TOO MUCH! These products are concentrated compared to bottled product. 

I personally have curly fine dry hair and have found using the conditioner bar too much for my hair, it made it heavy and flat. I normally have to use conditioner when using liquid shampoo. The shampoo bar on its own works just fine for me. You will just need to experiment as we are all used to using liquid shampoo. 🙂

Upgrading our life & Business at Emu Ridge

Larry and I are proud of what we have achieved since our inception in 1991. We love what we do, but there comes a time when you realise you’re getting older and its time for some changes!

We believe its time to have a better quality of life and to enjoy our hard work and not let our business consume us.  Its time to make life easier for us our family and our staff!

(And don’t worry we are both still working! Hopefully not quite as many hours as we have been once everything is in place. You can’t get rid of us that easily!!)

We were recently able to access the Kangaroo Island Commissioner’s Building Better Regions Funds In-Business Grant  which contributed to 50% of our recent business review. We haven’t reviewed our business properly for over 20 years!! We were also lucky to have the invaluable expertise of Andy from AL Assist complete our review for us, covering all areas in our business with a view to identifying opportunities for efficiency through automation and better business management systems. The review also discussed succession planning for our future with our kids in our business and retirement etc. Things that are always on on the “gonna do” plan that never get done!!

We are very happy to have already implemented many changes, such as a POS (Point of Sale) inventory management system and improved online order and mail systems. We can already see the benefits from implementing these changes, with better performance and productivity. We hope our online customers see an improvement too!

It has been a challenge for all of us! (so apologies if you get sent a few extra emails than you should!! Please bear with us over this transition thanks!!) Its been great to learn new systems, stimulating our minds and hopefully our performance and productivity in the future.

Our Manager Ella

Ella, our manager, has enjoyed the challenge involved in the setting up of our new systems, incorporating inventory management for our retail shop and e-commerce activities and the integration of our accounting system, to become fully streamlined. It’s great to be able to see everything at a glance. This will also help us look after our online customers better and improve time management.

Father and son effort here! Tristan and Larry working hard. Its been a time consuming exercise bar-coding all of our products, but worth the effort as scanning saves time!

My Sister Coralie and Daugher Mel going cross-eyed counting stock ready to barcode!

They reckon its time for a drink! (It had been a very long day and night!)

I hope you have enjoyed watching us grow over the years!

DIY Eucalyptus Shower Discs

Shower discs are a great way to clear your sinuses as well as keeping  your bathroom smelling fresh. These all-natural eucalyptus vapour discs are simple and easy to make, they are also non-toxic, so they are safe to use around children and pets.

They are great in the toilet too!

Each year we love having children from different schools that enjoy doing work experience at Emu Ridge on Kangaroo Island.  One School that has supported us for many years is the Mount Barker Waldorf School in Adelaide.

DSC_0235

These lovely girls enjoyed their work experience with us and had fun making the vapour discs, this was one of their projects. We always enjoy having the students, they are always a great help to us. Our business  is filled with diversity so they get to be involved in many different aspects of our business.

Ingredients:

  • 3 Cups Baking Soda

  • 1 Tsp Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Oil

  • 3 Drops Emu Ridge Lemon Myrtle Oil

  • 1 Cup Water

  • Bowl to mix it in

  • Silicone Molds or Lined Muffin Trays

 Directions:

1. Mix the water and baking soda together to form a thick paste.

2. Add the eucalyptus oil and lemon myrtle oil to the mixture.

3. Spoon the mixture into the molds.

Hint – Silicone muffin liners really are great, they pop right out with ease, make sure you line normal muffin tins with a liner, foil works best the paper ones can get stuck to the discs.

4. Let the discs set for 24 hours until the are dry and hard.

(if you cant wait that long you can also dry them in an oven, pre-heat it to 120c and pop them in for just over an hour. If you do this add the oils after the discs have cooled as the heat will evaporate the oils, they will still soak into the disc.)

The girls had fun packing them up, and we sold them in our shop. You could do this to and give them away as a gift or simply just put them in a jar or a ziplock back to use for your own personal use.

How to Use

Put a disc in the bottom of your shower in a corner away from the main water flow when you get in. It will slowly dissolve releasing the eucalyptus oil into the shower and the steam from the shower will all rise together, helping to clear sinuses for when you have a cold or flu.

You don’t have to wait until you have a cold to use these either!  Essential oils are proven to reduce stress, with so many of us now including aromatherapy into everyday life.

Hint – You are not only going to clear the sinuses, baking soda and eucalyptus oil will also clean and disinfect the bottom of the shower. Two jobs in one!  To buy our Eucalyptus Oil and Lemon Myrtle Oil, as well as many of our other great products, visit our Online Store

These are also great to pop into the toilet to clean and freshen!

DIY Vapor Rub all natural or buy online at Emu Ridge on Kangaroo Island

I became allergic to perfumes and preservatives many years ago and this prompted me to develop our natural range of products for Emu Ridge.

Our Vapor Rub was specifically made for babies and children as a decongestant for colds and flu. Just massage into the chest area, on the throat, on the back between the shoulder blades & on your feet, its great for sinus relief. Adults can add a few extra drops of Eucalyptus oil to the mixture to make it stronger.

Our Vapor Rub is available directly from our online shop Ingredients: Olive Oil, Coconut Oil & Bees Wax. Essential Oils: Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Thyme & Clove.

Our products are all made in small batches and they are lovingly made, bottled and labeled by hand by a real person. This is Sandra, she has been making natural products and skincare for decades.

Do you ever read the ingredients label? Sometimes, the things we trust to use with our family can have some surprising unhealthy additives.

Vapor rub helps with symptoms of a common cold or minor aches and pains of the muscles and joints. You can purchase vapor rub in shops, but many of these products contain toxic ingredients — such as camphor — that are harmful to your health.

Our Eucalyptus essential oil functions as an expectorant, helping to cleanse the body of toxins, making it great for relieving symptoms of the cold and flu. It has also proven helpful with sinus and respiratory problems.

DIY –

If you have nothing in your medicine cupboard. You can make a natural alternative, just mix about 10 drops of Emu Ridge eucalyptus oil with 25ml of Olive, coconut or Emu Oil and rub on your chest. You will be breathing easy in no-time, the natural way! Remember its great for rubbing on the bottom of your feet before you go to bed if you have a cold to!

Below is a great natural recipe you can also make at home from Dr Axe if you have the time.

I hope you have enjoyed our post, stay healthy ~ Bev~

Thanks Heather much appreciated, and so glad it has helped your son.

Meet the makers of our Natural Product Range

Do you ever wonder how things are made?

Meet Bob and Sandra …. this lovely couple make our range of natural products. We love the expertise and dedication that they put into creating and producing our unique range of handmade, quality, natural products!  

They are a pleasure to work with and are truly essential contributors to our Team!

Sandra and BobHere is a little memoir from Bob on how they started  their natural product journey.

“As any successful small business, ours started out as a hobby that quickly became a passion.

We started out making natural soaps. After many failed attempts we came up with a recipe that we were happy with and we have used ever since.

After the success with our soap, Sandra decided to start making skin care but it had to be natural ingredients, this was in the 90’s before natural products became as popular as they are today. This was before Google, so many hours were spent in book shops & libraries researching recipes, ingredients, methods and the benefits of natural plant based products. Next was the hard part, trying to substitute natural ingredients for the chemicals that are widely used in mainstream skin care. A very difficult process, with many hours of trial and error until Sandra finally came up with a range of products she was happy with.

After decades being involved in retail we were set up at one of our casual leasing sites at Marion Westfield shopping centre, where we had the good fortune to meet Bev Turner (Emu Ridge). Very quickly we realised that she was as interested as we were in the making and use of natural products. This was over ten years ago, since then we have worked together, developing new products and building up a very good working relationship…..and becoming good friends as well!” ~Bob~

 

Bob making our natural Emu Oil Soap

Before we met Bob and Sandra we tried to make our natural products to the best of our ability.  We couldn’t keep up with our soap making, back then it was made with tallow. Products being produced to be used on the body was a whole new set of rules compared to manufacturing Eucalyptus oil!  Insurance was a nightmare and being new to this area we just started out the best we could. We bought many of our products in bulk, the companies promoted these products as natural and we just added our eucalyptus oil as the fragrance and then bottled and labeled them, I’m sure many small businesses start out like this. On researching natural products and ingredients we soon realized we were not happy at all with the ingredients in many of these so-called natural products we were buying.

In later years, I had also become allergic to perfumes and preservatives and emu oil is now one of my favorite products for the body. Finding new, all-natural options was very important to me, being personally driven to find  better alternatives. We met Bob and Sandra and, as they say, the rest is history.

We now have a genuine natural product range made from scratch and we know they are all of excellent quality, they are unique to us and handmade with love!

Great job Bob and Sandra!
