I was so excited to finally have an abundance of rosemary growing in the garden so I could use it in an array of meals as well as skincare and natural cleaning products.
It is my favourite herb right now because of its clean fresh aroma and it’s healing and revitalising benefits.
I am sure you will love the rosemary hair rinse as much as I did because it is so easy to make, and leaves hair looking and feeling amazing.
Rosemary is packed with antioxidants and has anti inflammatory properties making it the ideal herbal hair rinse ingredient for people with sensitive, dry or irritated scalps. My hair had been dull, damaged and in need of some serious care, and after using my homemade rosemary hair tonic it’s glossy, and smells amazing.
Because rosemary is so cleaning it helps to remove oil build up on the hair without drying it out like many shampoos tend to do.
Many people say that rosemary hair rinses are beneficial for encouraging hair growth, so i’m keen to see further results after using it for a few more weeks.
I washed my hair with my usual organic shampoo and conditioner and the used the rinse after my hair was clean. Leave the hair rinse in, don’t wash it out, just dry hair as usual.
Rosemary hair rinse recipe (with lavender)
1 handful of rosemary, stalks and all.
1 handful of lavender, if you don’t have lavender the hair rise is still great without it, but the addition of lavender added to the aroma and healing properties.
2 litres of water.
1 – Pop the herbs and water into a large pot and bring to the boil, boil for around 20 minutes and then remove from the heat.
2 – Let the herbal rinse seep for a further 2-3 hours and then pour into glass jars for storage.
3 – Keep in the fridge and use within the next two weeks. I popped mine into a spray bottle to use after washing my hair. If you don’t have one you can just pour the rinse over you hair, but this could be a little cold after it’s been sitting in the fridge. The recycled spray bottle worked really well and then I just towel dried the excess off.
