Herbal Hair Balm

I have been making my own hair shampoos, hair balms, and conditioners since the early 80’s, and I need to make a new batch of hair balm today because I used all of what was left this morning.

I have several recipes I use for making hair balms which vary from simple to more complicated. The one I am making today is very easy. For this recipe you will need organic coconut oil, grade A olive oil, shea butter and essential oils. You will also need chamomile, lavender, rosemary and tea tree essential oils which you can find at your local Health Food Store and a container with a lid in which to store your hair balm.

Mix together 3 tablespoons of coconut oil with a 1/4 teaspoon of grade A olive oil and shea butter and blend well, and then add 2 – 4 drops of each essential oil according to your taste and mix thoroughly. The end product should look like whipped cream.

Your finished product should be thick but not solid. It may take a couple of times before you get it just right. However, it’s well worth the effort because you will have made a  product for your hair that has no harmful additives.
