Herbal Shampoo recipes

Posted on: March 4, 2009

Some of the recipes that I have found on the internet, there are plenty of them and they have various ingredients and suggestions for creating them.

To make your own olive oil and aloe shampoo, get together the following ingredients: ½ cup natural liquid castile soap, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and 2 tablespoons of aloe vera juice. In order to make this recipe work, you’ll also need to create what is known as an herbal infusion. This can be done by taking ½ ounce of dried flowers of your choice and pouring one cup of boiling water over them.

These next ones are taken from a forum website.

  • 1/2 cup natural shampoo base
    1/2 cup aloe vera gel
    3/4 tsp. avocado oil
    3/4 tsp. jasmine essential oil
To Make This Organic Shampoo: Mix together all ingredients. Place into a clean container preferably with a screw on lid. Let mixture set for a few hours to allow to thicken and the scents to take hold. Work into hair as usual and allow to sit for several minutes. Rinse as usual and style.
Made into an organic shampoo, it not only holds the aphrodesiac qualities of the original mixture, but it makes hair sensually soft and luxurious. It moisturizes and smells incredible.
  • 4 oz of castile soap with any scent is that available – plain, peppermint, eucalyptus.
  • ½ oz of rosemary – stimulates the hair follicles and helps to prevent premature baldness
  • ½ oz of sage – has antioxidants and keeps things from spoiling and is antibacterial
  • ½ oz of nettles – acts as a blood purifier, blood stimulator, contains a large source of nutrients for hair growth
  • ½ of lavender – controls the production of sebaceous gland oil and reduces itchy and flaky scalp conditions
  • 2000 mg of MSM (Organic Sulpher) – provides organic sulfur to your scalp, which improves the health and strength of your hair. It also helps to drive herbal nutrient into the skin and follicles where they can do the most good.
  • One empty 8 oz plastic bottle, or any other empty shampoo or soap bottle.
Mix the herbs in a mason jar, which has a lid. Boil 2 cups of distilled water. Add 3 heaping tablespoons of the mixed herbs into the boiling water. Pull the boiling water and herbs off the stove. Let the herb mixture sit for 30 – 40 minutes. Put the 2000mg of MSM into the herb mixture after 30 minutes of cooling. After 40 minutes and the MSM is melted, strain the herbal mixture into a bowl.
Pour 2 to 2 1/2 oz of strained herbal tea into the 8 oz plastic bottle. Now, pour the 4 oz of castile soap into the 8 oz plastic bottle. Cap the bottle and shake to mix the ingredients.
The shampoo is now finished and ready for use. Use this as a base for all of the shampoos you make. You can add different herbs as you learn what these herbs do and how they help your hair. You can vary the ingredients according to your taste.
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley
    2 tablespoons rosemary leaves
    2 tablespoons sage leaves
    2 tablespoons thyme leaves
    1 cup boiling water
    1 cup castile soap
This shampoo is appropriate for all hair types.
Add herbs to boiling water. Remove from heat. Cover. Let steep 20 minutes.
Add soap. Strain into a container.
Let stand overnight before using.
