How I hope all is well with everyone:). As some of you ladies may know I looove my herb infused oils and spritz. Today I bring you a great, effective , easy and even better...a natural way to aid in dandruff or dry scalp. Below I will post a very simple way of doing so, this recipe can be made as a oil infusion or a spritz your choice. Before we start let me say when I infuse my DIY's I use heaping tablespoons or a great amount of herbs. I like the infusions to be strong. So I will not list the measurements below, because you can use as much or as little as you like. You do not have to use as much, the results should be the same. Now let's get started:
YOU WILL NEED:
Horsetail ( also great for hair growth, split ends, and dull hair )
Burdock Root ( also great for shine & luster, hair growth , split ends, dry hair, growth, and damaged hair)
Chamomile ( also great for dry hair, sensitive scalp, and itchy scalp)
White Willow ( also great for scalp irritation, and shine & luster)
Coltsfoot ( also great for hair growth, split ends, and growth )
Gather your jar, herbs, etc. If infusing in oil of choice ( i.e EVOO, Jojoba, etc) after placing herbs into jar pour your oil over that. You can allow your herbs to sit in a dark cabinet to infuse. Or you can place your herbal mixture in a window seal allowing the sun to aid in the infusion. You can do this either way from anywhere to a few days , weeks , or months. I have let my infusion's sit for 6 months at a time ( but , you must chance the herbs every month) the longer it sits, the stronger the infusion.
You can use the very same herbs , boil some water pour your hot water over the herbs into a container. Allow this to infuse for a few hour's to overnight. Drain the herbs and there you have an herbal spritz. From there you can add Essential oils, Aloe juice ( I always add Aloe , love that stuff). pour into a spry bottle and store in the refrigerator.
