A natural shampoo for the hair


3 oz Liquid Castile Soap
1 heaping tbsp Chamomile Flowers
1 heaping tbsp Nettle Leaves
1 heaping tbsp Sage Leaves
1 heaping tbsp Rosemary Leaves
Jojoba Oil (for extra conditioning--optional)
Few drops each of rosemary and lavender oils
Boiling water


Mix herbs together in a bowl. Add enough water to cover herbs, cover and let steep at least 30 minutes. Pour castile soap into a bottle. Strain herbs and funnel into soap. Add a few squirts of jojoba oil and essential oils, if desired. Shake well before each use to mix the oil with the soap. Shampoo will be very runny, but also very concentrated, so use only a little bit when shampooing. **Note** Feel free to experiment with different herbs and essential oils for this recipe.
