This recipe makes enough for one application.
- Soften Coconut Oil in a mixing bowl. Spoon in honey olive oil, & essential oils mix together well.
- Apply like conditioner to wet / washed hair. Massage into scalp and all throughout strands. You can bring this in the bath or shower with you. Leave on for 5-30 minutes to fully enjoy the nourishing benefits. If you want to leave it on overnight you should wrap your head in a towel or shower cap to avoid getting everything sticky. ^_^ Rinse thoroughly or repeat wash & condition.
*It may be wise to test a small patch on your scalp first as peppermint oil can be spicy. Everyone reacts differently to everything. If it feels like it may sting or burn, dilute more with an extra spoon or two of Olive Oil and use less peppermint oil in the next batch.*
ALSO: please be careful if you’re doing this in the bath as it may leave your tub slippery from all the oils.
An extra bonus, after massaging this into your hair, your hands are left feeling extra smooth too!
Also, you can refer to my list on How to choose a Carrier Oil for making a mask for other hair types as this one is generally for normal to dry hair. You may want to swap a few ingredients if you have oily hair.
I recommend Mountain Rose Herbs for all of your herbal healing needs!
