Natural hair recipes to make your own great hair products

Want beautiful hair... naturally? Making your own all natural hair products will help your hair return to its natural state - shiny, happy and healthy.

Commercial hair products, styling, stress, weather, poor diet and lack of exercise all contribute to dull, dry, lank locks.

These pages deal with the product problem by giving you lots of easy, inexpensive, natural hair recipes you can cook up in your kitchen... and then take into the bathroom and scrub your way to healthier hair (and a more relaxed you!)

Choosing the Right Oils

There's so much more to essential oils than meets the eye. Their molecules are so tiny that they absorb deep into your body in a matter of moments.

If the essential oil you buy is filled with additives (to "stretch" the scent) and fragrance boosters, those potentially harmful ingredients are also absorbed straight into your body. Not ideal!

For instance, my mom and I get instant headaches with most kinds of lavender oil. That's because of the extra "lavender" scent that's added to make it smell stronger. But when it's pure lavender - nothing else - no headaches.

I've used many brands over the last 12 years or so and what I know for sure is, you get what you pay for. So I recommend buying the highest quality essential oils you can afford.

Here's how I break it out...

doTerra for highest quality. You can shop retail by clicking the Shop button at the top. Or click Join & Save to become a wholesale customer and get 25% discount.


Mountain Rose for quality on a budget. Plus they have all the other ingredients you'll need for your aromatherapy recipes.


Amazon for variety and selection. Please remember to buy the best oils you can afford - there's a lot of cheap oils in the marketplace, and they just won't give you the experience you're looking for.
