Herbal Vinegar Infusion

This slightly medicinal-scented herbal rinse helps to relieve an itchy scalp, remove flakes, and restore your hair’s pH balance. Try to use this blend daily until itching and flaking stops. Follow with a natural, leave-in conditioner or detangler if necessary.

2 cups distilled water

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar, raw or processed

2 tablespoons rosemary

2 tablespoons sage

1 tablespoon nettle

10 drops tea tree or rosemary (chemotype verbenon) essential oil

Recommended for: all hair types except very dry

Use: daily or as needed

Follow with: natural leave-in conditioner

Prep time: approximately 2 hours

Blending tools: strainer, spoon

Store in: plastic squeeze bottle

Yield: approximately 2.5 cups

In a small saucepan, bring the water and vinegar to just shy of boiling. Remove from heat. Add the herbs, cover, and steep for about 2 hours.

Strain, add the essential oil, stir to blend, and pour into a storage container.

No refrigeration is required if used within 2 weeks, or refrigerate for 4 weeks, then discard.

Application tips: Shampoo and condition hair or, if not shampooing, wet hair, condition, rinse, and squeeze out excess water. Shake the bottle vigorously to blend and apply approximately 1/4 cup to wet scalp and gently massage for 2 or 3 minutes. Rinse with cool water. Note: This rinse may stain light-colored towels.
