The Ultimate Hair Treatment

Hydrate dry locks and enjoy lush hair for weeks with this infused oil recipe.


| July/ August 1999


A mixture of honey and herbal infused oil makes for a moisturizing treatment that will benefit your hair for weeks. To make the infusion, use burdock, marshmallow, nettle and parsley for dehydrated, lifeless hair; add rosemary and peppermint essential oils for hair follicle health and stimulation.

Infused Oil for Dry Hair

• 1 part dried herbs
• 2 parts vegetable oil, such as olive or almond oil

1. Stir the herbs into the oil (the 1:2 ratio is a general starting point; it’s best to use as much herbal material as possible).

2. Let the mixture steep for about two weeks; shake or stir daily.

Do we just take a guess at how much honey to put in with the herbs & oil? Would argan oil work as well?
