that I might want to try making my own shampoo. Googling, I found this recipe:


2 TBSP. (30 ml) liquid castille soap
1 cup (250 ml) spring water
1/4 cup n(50 ml) fresh herbs
1 tsp. (5 ml) almondor apricot kernel oil
2 drops esential iol

1. Place herbs in a clean 10-oz (284 g.) glass jar with a lid.
2. Boil the spring water and pour over the herbs.
3. Cover and let steep for 10-20 minutes.
4. Strain the liquid from the herbs into a bowl.
5. Add the liquid castille soap and almond or apricot kernel oil and mix thoroughly.
6. Scent with essential oil and mix again.
7. Bottle in a clean plastic container with a spout or a clean recycled shampoo bottle.

Sounds like fun, huh? Anyone ever try making shampoo? Not exactly a medicine, but I thought those on this board may have some ideas since "alternative" (to me, anyway) fits for anything not mass-produced.
