1 cup mild shampoo
¼ cup boiled beer.

DIRECTIONS
8 oz water

3 oz Liquid Castille Soap

1-2 TBSP dried organic herbs of choice (see list below)

20-60 drops essential oil (see list below)

1/4 tsp organic Jojoba or Olive oil (adjust as needed – use more for dry hair or may omit for oily hair)

Make an herbal infusion by pouring boiling water over the herbs, cover, and allow them to steep for at least 4 hours. Strain the herbs out and pour the reserved liquid into a bottle, then add Castille soap and oils. Your herbal shampoo is now ready to use! Always shake well before use since the contents will naturally separate.
