Treat your hair with these lavender and chamomile shampoo bars, which will soothe your scalp and help you distress.
Simple & Natural Soapmaking (Page Steet Publishing, 2017)by Jan Berry presents 50 easy, unique soap recipes with ingredients and scents inspired by the herb garden, veggie garden, farm, forest and more. Beginners can join in the sudsy fun with detailed tutorials and step-by-step photographs for making traditional cold-process soap and the more modern hot-process method with a slow cooker.
These bars feature a double dose of scalp-soothing chamomile, incorporating both a tea and oil infusion of the flowers. If chamomile isn’t available, try using calendula or dandelion flowers instead. A generous amount of castor oil, combined with the natural sugars in honey, ensures a terrific lathering experience. Lavender essential oil not only contributes a subtle stress-reducing scent, but is purported to help promote hair growth as well. Don’t feel limited to using shampoo bars only on your hair; they make an excellent body or hand soap too!
Yield: 7 TO 8 BARS OF SOAP (2.5 LB)
