I have exciting news to share about the future of the ShamPHree shampoo-free hair care and lifestyle line. And it involves scenting magic.
Here is a quick story. 15 years ago was my first time at the Oregon Country Fair, the west-coast’s most exclusive marketplace for independent old-time crafters and makers.That first year, I walked past a craft booth that was shrouded in afghani tapestries, incense wafting out of it in soft spicy clouds. I looked towards the booth and a pair of icy blue eyes drew me in.
I bought incense from the Nu Essence booth that first year. And every time I burned it, I remembered the intoxicating spicy smell and those icy blue eyes. Every year since, I go back for more incense and oil from Kirk, the mastermind behind Nu Essence. Kirk has studied ancient Egyption methods of oil extraction, blending and incense making for years. He travels the world, finding spices, resins, and essential oils to use in his mixtures.
When I first met my husband Jonathan in Arkansas, he wore a scent in his ginger beard that knocked my socks off from first whiff. Turns out, it was Nu Essense India spray, a gift to him from his ex girl-friend who had met Kirk in New Mexico years before. It is a small world, and the nose knows best.
This year at the country fair, I talked to Kirk about using his scents in ShamPHree hair products as a collaboration. He loved the idea.
So, here we go, babes. The next round of products in the ShamPHree line will feature the intoxicatingly sexy earthy unisex scent oils of Nu Essence. They will take you to a different place, a place where you want to just roll around smelling yourself.
