Nourishing Hair Balm with Fresh Herbs

What You’ll Need:

1 ounce of fresh (or dried) herbs like lavender, sage, chamomile, rosemary, rose. Whatever scents you like!

6 ounces of coconut oil, beeswax or shea butter

1/2 ounce of aloe vera (use blended fresh leaves whenever possible. It’s nice to have fresh aloe growing on hand)

Optional: essential oils that compliment your herbs like eucalyptus

 

Take your herbs and make an oil infusion with them and your oil. Use whatever method you please:

Cold Infusion: In a glass jar, cover the herbs with oil. Stir and allow to sit for 2-3 weeks.

Double Boil: You can also infuse your herbs to the oil by double boiling it for 2 hours. Place a small pot in a large pot of hot water and melt the oil in the small pot. Make sure water doesn’t get into the smaller pot and the oil is never directly on the burner.

Mix the herb infusion with the rest of the ingredients like aloe vera and optional essential oils.

Store in an airtight container. A little bit is all you’ll need! More effective if used on dry hair.
