Organic Homemade Shampoo (February 02nd, 2012)

Organic Homemade Shampoo



Here is a recipe for a nice harmful chemical free – (like: Sodium Laureate Sulfate or Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and others alike – Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is a skin and eye irritant and can cause dermatitis with prolonged contact) -  organic and easy to make shampoo.

We’ve been using it for the last 2.5  years since I’ve put it together and everybody in the family seems to like it.

Recipe:

Empty bottle (1)

Castile Soap

Olive Oil

Coconut Oil

Honey

Tea Tree Oil

Wild Oregano Oil

Lavender Essential Oil

Water

Basically all measurements are according to the size of the bottle that you provide and more or less to your likes (you can be creative and change the ingredients too, however be careful with Essential Oils )

Pour ingredients inside the empty bottle 1/2 to 3/4 of Castile Soap, add a 1 or 2 spoons of Olive Oil, 1 spoon of Coconut Oil, 1 spoon of Honey, a few drops of Tea Tree Oil, a few drops of Wild Oregano Oil, a few drops of Lavender Essential Oil fill up the rest with Water and mix everything by shaking the bottle and there you have it ready to use.

We’ve made a baby version for our newborn baby without the tea tree oil, the Wild Oregano Oil and the lavender essential oil.

It’s not a fancy bottle of  Shampoo like the ones you buy from the store but does the job very well without the risk of contracting allergies or leaving residue in your scalp or even destroying your hair.

Note: If you want some thickness on the final product do not add too much water or you can just skip the water part. You should shake the bottle before using it.

Give it a try!

It can be used as Shampoo, Body Wash or Hand soap.
