Body & Soul: Rosemary-Thyme Rinse




  • iStockphoto.com/Stockphoto4u

Makes 12 ounces 

Rosemary and thyme have been used for centuries to darken hair and keep it soft and silky. They also have natural antiseptic properties, which give this rinse the added bonus of keeping your scalp healthy and clean. After several uses, you will notice the results. Herbal rinses need to build up over time, but the advantage is that your hair will darken quite subtly and naturally.  

• 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves or 1⁄2 tablespoon dried
• 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves or 1⁄2 tablespoon dried
• 2 cups boiling water

1. Place herbs in a glass bowl and pour boiling water over them. Allow leaves to steep until cool. Strain liquid and pour into a clean container. 

2. To use: After shampooing, pour the rinse over your hair. Do not rinse.




Janice Cox recently co-authored a book with her daughter Lauren Cox, EcoBeauty—Scrubs, Rubs, Masks, and Bath Bombs for You and Your Friends (Ten Speed Press, 2009). Look for it in bookstores nationwide.
