Green Recipes ~ Natural Homemade Shampoo


1/4 cup coconut milk

1/3 cup Liquid Castille Soap (like Dr. Bronners)

1/2 of a teaspoon (or several capsules) of Vitamin E oil (completely optional)

20 drops of Essential Oils of choice ( peppermint, lavender, rosemary and orange or combinations of those)

For dry hair: add 1/2 tsp olive or almond oil (optional)

How to Make Natural Shampoo:

Combine all ingredients in an old shampoo bottle or jar of some kind (pump soap dispensers and even foaming dispensers work well for this. If you use a foaming dispenser, add 1/4 cup of distilled water)

Shake well to mix.

Keep in shower for up to a month.

Shake before each use.

Use about a teaspoon every time you shampoo.

If you use a foaming dispenser, it also makes a great shaving cream- just dilute with 1/4 cup distilled water!
