|(this recipe is from my personal blog)|
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/3 cup Dr. Bronner's soap
1/2 tsp. Vitamin E oil
20 drops doTERRA essential oil of your choice
optional: 1/2 tsp. olive or almond oil (for dry hair)
Combine the ingredients together in a bowl and whisk well.
Use about 1 Tbsp. per wash, more if washing less often than once a day.
I stored my shampoo in one of those empty bottles you can get in the travel toiletries section at Target. Make a larger recipe and store in an old shampoo bottle. You can use any scent of Dr. Bronner's soap and of doTERRA essential oil. I used Lavender in both but next time I may try mixing scents, like Lavender and Peppermint. Or, my new favorite doTERRA oil blend, Citrus Bliss. Make sure to shake it up each time before you use it. I squirt about a tablespoon into my hand, rub in and lather, and quickly get my fingers going with the lather on my scalp. The lather has a tendency to “fade” quickly but I find that if I focus on my scalp first it’s just fine.
