Hello everyone! Well! March certainly came in like a lion, didn't it? Hope this post finds you all safe and sound.
a dozen leafy soapwort stems (roughly chopped)
1 pint water
Bruise the stems lightly with the back of a spoon in an enamelware or any non-metallic pot. Add the water and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from the heat. At this point, you can add a handful of fresh herbs, such as chamomile for blonde hair or rosemary for dark hair. Just toss into the infusion and cover the pot. Allow to cool, then strain and use immediately or store in the fridge for up to two days.
Ta Da! Paraban free shampoo! Oh! And lavender would be a lovely addition too!
PS: When I enlarged this picture I noticed that now I need to touch up the green trim. One thing leads to another!
