This is my adaptation of one of Rosemary Gladstar’s shampoo recipes. Details below.

To make your shampoo you will need –
About 1oz of herb material, 3oz of castille soap (I used Dr. Bronner’s soap), 1/4 teaspoon of oil of choice, (I used my beauty blend, you could use jojoba), 8oz filtered or distilled water. Optional – essential oils.
Method – Make a strong infusion of herbal tea or simmer on the stove gently for 20 mins or so and then strain.
Add the castille soap and mix gently. Add the oil and the essential oils. Mix and pour into container. Shake well before use.
To make the hair rinse, fill a jar with your herbs and pour on Apple Cider Vinegar. Allow to infuse for 6 weeks. Strain and then use after washing and rinsing your hair. Use enough to fill your palm. Do not wash out.
Herbs suitable for dark hair include Rosemary, Garden Sage, Oak Galls, Black Walnut Hull.
Herbs suitable for fair hair include Calendula, Chamomile, Lemon rind.
It is such a pleasure to use herbs in as many formats as possible, for food, medicine, body care, crafts and so on. They are so beautiful and appeal to all the senses leaving you feel uplifted and cleansed.
