Supplies:

  • 1 cup dried nettle leaves, finely chopped

  • 1/2 cup fresh rosemary leaves, finely chopped

  • 1/4 cup aloe gel (or 1 large aloe leaf)

  • 2 cups jojoba oil

  • 2 cups coconut oil

  • large mason jar w/lid

  • cheesecloth

  • essential oils (optional)

Steps:

  1. Chop the herbs as finely as possible and add to a large mason jar.

  2. Cover herbs completely with the coconut and jojoba oils.

  3. Scrape the inside of a large aloe leaf to remove all of the gel. If you use store-purchased aloe gel make sure there are minimal added ingredients and no! alcohol. Add this to the mixture.

  4. Cover jar with a tight fitting lid and shake.

  5. Leave in sun for three to four days, shake daily.

  6. After mixture is solar infused, strain out herbs using a cheesecloth. Add a few drops essential oil to liquid mixture if desired. Store in glass jar.

  7. Use weekly: massage a generous amount into your scalp for about two to three minutes, coating hair strands completely from root to tips. Comb through and put your hair into a braid. Sleep overnight with the oil in your hair and then was as normal in the morning.

  8. Enjoy the compliments.
