I have to admit, I go a little bonkers over this shampoo bar. Have you ever jumped into a cold lake after a hot sauna? Cuz' here's your chance to do it while keeping your feet firmly planted in the shower, which is my way of pulling off this feat. You get all the the cool, refreshing, and invigorating sensations you're looking for with none of the sweat or the shock.
(Psst. Keep the tingly feeling going with our coordinating Matcha Mint Body Polish. Makes a perfect pair after a hard work out—if you're into that kind of thing—which I'm most definitely not. Can someone pass the cookies?)
Even though our Peppermint Tea Tree shampoo bar feels great on scalp and skin, the main benefit of this bar is the health it can help restore to both hair and scalp. Nourishment and restorative properties from the specifically chosen carrier oils plus added healing from the essential oil blend.
Some of the benefits, but not limited to, are with ingredients such as Coconut oil which is a super-oil full of naturally present antioxidants, it is an excellent anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial. Olive oil which is packed with anti-aging antioxidants and hydrating squalene, making it superb for hair, skin, and nails. Jojoba oil is a natural anti-fungal, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, its properties keep the scalp clean and healthy. It can also prevent hair loss and thinning caused by the clogged hair follicles as it dissolves and clears these blockages and promotes the development of new hair cells, which can lead to hair growth. Shea butter strengthens your skin by stimulating the production of collagen, it helps make your skin more supple, more alive, nourished and radiant. We could keep going, but you probably get the idea.
For the essential oils, both peppermint and tea tree essential oils have antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory properties. Peppermint adds a cooling effect which can help eliminate the urge to scratch, while tea tree thanks to it's fantastic anti-fungal properties is great for fighting dandruff. Tea tree oil fights the fungus that causes dandruff without drying out the scalp, it can also serve as a natural conditioner and eliminate problems that lead the scalp to flake.
Ingredients: saponified oils of organic coconut, organic olive, castor bean, organic sunflower, organic sustainable palm, organic jojoba, organic shea nut butter, and mango seed butter, rosemary oil extract, and essential oils of organic peppermint and organic tea tree.

I have been using peppermint tea tree shampoo for almost 2 years and love it. My hair is very silky and I don't get an itchy scalp like I do with other shampoos. And the best part, no bottle to deal with!!
Lathers wonderfully. Smell is slight and not overwhelming. Paper packaging is wonderful - one reason I'm switching to bars. Great for wavy hair- makes the waves come out.
This is our all time favorite soap! My son says it is the best soap for removing grease after he does work on his car. It is great for itchy flaky scalp issues. Love it!!!
I have been doing baking soda and ACV for hair care for a few years, and while it got rid of my dandruff, I have started to feel like my hair was getting less healthy. I am trying to cut out as much plastic waste as I can, and this was a great solution! I have been using it for about two weeks and dandruff has not returned, and my hair is looking great so far!
My husband refuses to use anything else! We were not happy with a different soap brand we were using, so we switched to AVNS because of the great reviews. When we switched, I went a bit overboard with ordering samples because I was so excited for all the different scents. We tried this bar first and my husband loved it so much that he won't use anything else - shampoo, soaping, and shaving! The scent is amazingly refreshing and it permeates the entire bathroom; perfect for the mornings.
I used a big name anti dandruff shampoo for more than 40 years - I bought the Peppermint Tea Tree Shampoo Bar and tried it out - I bought it to make it easier to travel but now I like the removal of the chemicals and the plastic container ...but the important thing is it works really well (and is easier to travel with)
I love that this peppermint tea tree soap has helped with my itchy scalp and welts on my scalp. I also use the herbal vinegar hair rinse too it works wonderfully. All the body bars smell fabulous.
Sometime I would get an itchy scalp and since using the peppermint tea tree bar my scalp feels so much better and my hair is silky soft to boot!!! Love the fact it is one less plastic bottle I need to buy.
This is my favorite shampoo bar. I have fine, fragile blond hair and have had an annoying scalp itch for years. The itchy scalp is what caused me to try the Peppermint Tea tree soap. For starters I definitely had a more rough transition than some reviewers. I was surprised because I have not used shampoos with harsh chemicals for years. That was a a little frustrating, but I also did not start with this soap bar and wonder if I had perhaps I would have gotten through it faster than 6 wks. Anyway, this bar smells great and is invigorating and a little tingly on my scalp which feels good. I try to leave it on for 30 seconds on just the scalp area then gently scrub the ends. I do this twice and generally still do a vinegar rinse. I have always had an oily scalp and dry ends. This bar does not dry out my ends and it makes my hair so shiny and soft (doesn't feel soft when it is wet) The itch on my scalp is not gone entirely but has definitely reduced to barely there. At this stage with this bar I can go 2 full days then wash on the morning of the 3rd day.
My daughter really enjoys using this bar. She does not like "girly" scents, so this one is perfect. She really likes the minty smell.
I can tell my hair feels cleaner since I started using the shampoo bar.
I love this and pretty much every bar of soap from AVNS. I am doctor required to scrub my eye lashes and lids with tea tree soap. I love that I have found one that is all natural!! Thank you AVNS!
I have suffered from an angry, oily, sensitive scalp (seborrheic dermatitis) for many years and have long very thick wavy hair. I have tried shampoo soaps from other companies, but they irritated my scalp. Well, last night I tried your peppermint tea tree shampoo bar and guess what? Your shampoo soap did NOT irritate my sensitive scalp or my face! After coming out of the shower, my scalp did NOT start irritating me as it usually does after shampooing. I am now wondering, in the past was I using too harsh shampoo bars from other companies that was making my sensitive scalp worse and drying out my skin? My guess is yes, probably. Well, guess what? Now I'm sticking to just Apple Valley shampoo bars and soaps, which my scalp and hair prefer! This morning (after shampooing last night) my scalp is still clear and not bothering me at all (no itching, redness, or soreness) and my hair is shiny, full of body, and so soft - I can't stop touching it! Thank you so much Natalie, for this AMAZING shampoo bar! Finally, I found the solution and I'm so thrilled!
Absolutely love this Peppermint Tea Tree Shampoo Bar and body bar rolled into one. Great at moisturizing the skin and hair. Love it so much that I just ordered several more bars of this and others.
This shampoo bar smells pretty good, although I could not smell much of the peppermint in "peppermint tea tree". I used it for about a week and my hair was sticky- then I used a vinegar rinse and my hair was just fine. I am still getting used to shampoo thta doesn't get foamy with bubbles, let alone in a bar, but I am excited that it's all natural and seems to be a good shampoo. It is a lovely experience to open the package because it smells so good!
I love this bar! It helps with my dry scalp and I like that the scent isn't over powering. My first shampoo bar over a year ago and I haven't changed since! :)
I began using this in my journey towards shampoo bars. Fell in love. My husband has had major scalp issues for years. Sores, scaling, dandruff, itching, etc. He switched to his bar and no longer has ANY issues with his scalp. Sold us on it.
Like Natalie,this is my favorite shampoo bar, it leaves my hair remarkably clean without residue. I love the fresh clean scent of peppermint and my husband does too.
I'm partial to anything peppermint. I love the smell of peppermint essential oil. If Apple Valley could come up with a peppermint, jasmine, coconut, mango soap; that would be the bomb. This soap was so refreshing and light. The lather is great and tea tree already leaves a cooling tingling sensation that it just goes great with peppermint
I love the fact that it doesn't leave a residue on my hair like most soap bars and my husband and I both love that we can use it on our body as well.
Great option for a guy like me who want's something that works really well, is quick and easy to use, and doesn't leave a strong feminine scent in your hair after showering. I'm on my second bar, and have sworn off store bought shampoos altogether. I use the Citrus rinse once a week, as recommended.
So today was 85 degrees here, too warm for my liking. Decided to pull out the sample and lather up. Wow, the lather is fantastic! The smell is awesome as I'm a big mint fan! And it did give a cooling type of feel as I'm lathering and showering in cool water. Hair looks great, dermatitis scalp feels calm and happy----so I'm happy!!
I will buy this soap again! It is amazing!!
I could write a book about how great this bar is, actually all of them are. I’ve gotten samples of quite a few trying to decide which I like the best. They were out of samples of this one when I wanted to order it, so I took the plunge and got a full sized bar. No regrets! It’s one of my favorites and I keep it in my shower at all times. I get tired of having to use the same stuff every day and since these bars are so affordable I can keep a couple different scents in the shower and indulge my need for something different whenever I want. This bar lathers like a dream and is very easy to distribute through my nearly hip-length hair. I adore peppermint, any mint in fact, so every time I wash my hair with this bar all of the good memories tied to the scent come back to me. It took a while for my hair and I to adjust to all natural shampoo, but I’m very glad that I hung in there. I almost threw in the towel, but I’m stubborn. Now, I don’t have to fight frizz daily, which is saving me a ton of money on gel and hair spray. My hair is so soft I can hardly keep my hands out of it. I use an ACV rinse on occasion, and work a dab of argan, coconut or jojoba oil into my hair while it’s still wet out of habit. My mother is a cosmetologist and was taught in school that you should never let your hair dry without putting something moisturizing in it. Will definitely repurchase, in fact I already have!
I love the smell of this! It has the great lather of the other bars with the fresh smell of peppermint and a tingle to go along with it. I also believe that this bar helped relieve my irritation from LOADS of chigger bites(maybe because of the tea tree oil?) I love this and will order it again!
I recieved my first order this past weekend and a free, sample sliver of this came with my purchases. Boy, am I glad it did. I can't get enough of this soap!!! It leaves my hair super clean and the scent is very fresh and invigorating on top of that! It's the perfect pick me up soap and I just ordered a full size bar so I don't run out :)
Loved the smell of this bar and how it cleaned my hair. Still searching for a bar that will help me with my scalp problems. This one cleared it up a little but not all of it.
I am very pleased with the Peppermint Tea Tree Shampoo Bar I purchased recently. I love the smell and was quite pleased with how well it lathers and suds. I will definitely buy this bar again
I got this to use in my hair, which is very curly and gets oily quick. This shampoo bar makes my hair feel soft, and it doesn't get oily as quick. I also use it as body soap occasionally and I'm so clean (with NO residue) afterwards I almost squeak! Love it. :)
I adore the Peppermint Tea Tree Shampoo bar. I love that it is all natural and I really love that it completely clears up my face. I wasn't sure if it was having an effect until I stopped using it for a few days while I tried a different bar. A mini-breakout ensured. I won't be without it again. I use this bar with an apple cider vinegar rinse and my hair looks great. It was a little weird at first to use a bar on my head, but I love how it sudses and it smells nice, too.
I bought this bar for my 13 year old daughter who struggles with dandruff. It was a hard sell, but she loves it now! I also appreciate the way this company operates: the thank you note on invoices, the free bar program and the free samples included in orders. I like to support family run, American companies and this is an excellent one!
I really wanted to start using shampoo bars and had tried another company first. Even after using an ACV rinse I got huge dandruff flakes every time. Not with this bar from Apple Valley Natural Soap! After the first use (using no rinse) my hair was clean with no flakes at all. So happy I didn't have to give up on using a shampoo bar! Also the prices are great, it shipped fast, and the invoice was signed with a thank you and I received a sample of a body soap. Every part of my experience with Apple Valley Natural Soap has been wonderful.
This bar smells great and is so invigorating! Works great on my face and hair.
I have tried almost all of the shampoo/body bars that are offered and the Peppermint Tea Tree is my favorite. While I really LOVE many of the other bars, I always order more of these each time because of the fresh feeling, plus the way it makes my hair look and feel. My hair is very fine and can get oily using normal shampoos or near the end of the day, but my scalp can get itchy at the same time. Once I start using this bar, no more itchiness or weirdness. Love, love, love this bar. Started using these bars exclusively about 3 years ago and I have never gone back. Which is a lot to say for us with 5 kids and not much money. Worth every penny.
This combination of tea tree and peppermint is already one of my favorites. It's very refreshing in this hot, humid weather and works well for body and hair. Also, I was having some sinus pressure/congestion so I left it on my cheek/sinus area while in the shower and it really helped ease my sinus pain. I did this for a few days and the discomfort is gone.
I gave this soap as a Christmas gifts to some of my kids teachers. They came back from break raving about it! I love that I can give natural, useful gifts that are very cost effective!
Love the feel and scent of this bar! Very refreshing, and leaves my skin tingly. Great way to wake up!
This is my favorite. It smells amazing and is perfect to wake you up in the morning. I have been using this for over 2 years and I cannot go back to store bought soap.
I love to use this bar after a hard sweaty workout! It truly cools and refreshes the senses, skin & scalp. I also love using it when I have one of my ever nagging sinus infections. This bar combined with the steam from my shower really helps clear my sinuses and provides much needed relief.
This is one of my favorite shampoo bars! It cleared up the itching and leaves my hair smelling great, not at all 'perfumy'. I have been using this for some time and have had no problem with it damaging my coloring. Thank you for making such wonderful products.
