DIY NATURAL HERBAL SHAMPOO RECIPE
- 1 Part Rose Petals
- 1 Part Calendula Flowers
- 1-2 tbsp of Grapefruit Powder
- 1 tbsp of Shampoo Ginger Juice OR Pure Castile Soap
- 5-7 drops of Essential Oil (your choice)
Here are two Essential Oils I've used so far with this recipe....the smell is divine!
--- Lavender Essential Oil - helps with dry, itchy, flaky, dandruff type scalp
--- Gardenia Essential Oil - promotes and nourishes hair growth, maintains natural hair oils
First, prepare your herbal infusion by placing 1 part rose petals, 1 part calendula flowers, 1-2 tbsp of grapefruit powder in a sauce pan with 3/4-1 cup water. On low heat, allow the mixture to simmer for 20-30 minutes. Strain and place in a clean jar. Allow to cool. Then, add 1 tbsp of Shampoo Ginger or Pure Castile Soap, along with 5-7 drops of your chosen Essential Oil and stir gently. Suggestion: You can use this shampoo multiple times, by adding small amounts (1/4 of the bottle) to a squirt or spray bottle and diluting it with water. I usually get about 5-7 applications from each jar. OR Use as a one time application. Just see what works best for you! You can also use this mixture in the bath, as a natural body wash.
