10 chamomile tea bags
1 cup liquid Castile soap
1/2 tablespoon glycerin
A few drops of essential oils from the list provided – optional but nice
Steep chamomile tea bags in boiled water, cover for about an hour. Remove tea bags, add castile soap, glycerin and essential oils (if using) to the cooled tea mixture. Bottle and place it in a dark, cool place or in the refrigerator. Since your homemade shampoo is preservative- and paraben-free, keep the lids tightly closed and store in a cool place.
Recipe from Holistichorse.com
3/4 cup Distilled water
1/4 cup Witch Hazel
1 tsp. Fractionated Coconut Oil
(optional, but a nice touch. I like Lavender’s natural calming effect and Peppermint is invigorating for early morning classes)
Directions: Combine ingredients and mix. Fill a separate small container or ziplock bag with several cloths, rags or extra-strong paper towels and pour in liquid. You want to add enough that the cloths are moist, but not dripping wet. Mix well and keep them stored in the bag/container. Use to remove dirt, dust, mud, sweat and tears!
