Soapwort Herbal Shampoo Recipe
This is a very fragrant and stimulating for your scalp.It prevents dandruff and promotes hair growth. Take 1 cup of each of the following and boil them and let them reduce themselves in 2 cups H20. Do not use metal pans….I use an old Mr. Coffee pot or a vision clear glass pan.
and for a rich chestnut appearance cloves
Let them steep for at least 2 hours…strain and the liquid left will be very dark brown. Mix these with the shampoo at a 1:1 combination….if you want a darker color add just a little more rosemary and cloves. Pour into bottles and let it set overnight. In the morning you can add a couple drops of your favorite EO to add fragrance….
For the soapwort recipe take 2 handfuls of soapwort to the glass pan and pour over it 1-1 1/2 cups water. Bring this to a boil and lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Cover it and let it steep until cool strain it into a bottle that closes tightly. When you add the nettle, rosemary, spearmint and cloves let it infuse for at least 60 minutes…I prefer to let it infuse over night. every time you use it, it needs to be shaken. This won’t give you a head full of suds as commercial ones will but the cleansing is undeniable. Soapwort is nothing more that Wild Sweet William.
You can add fennel to it as well then it would condition as well.For lighter hair substitute the rosemary for chamomile and the cloves for lemon or lemongrass.
