This scalp toner will keep your scalp healthy and clean and will also give you a cool, tingly sensation that is stimulating and energizing after shampooing. It contains fresh mint and parsley, both of which are naturally astringent and refreshing. MAKES 8 OUNCES

• 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, chopped
• 1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves, chopped
• 1/2 cup boiling water
• 1/2 cup witch hazel

1. Place the mint and parsley in a glass container and pour the boiling water over them. Allow the mixture to steep and cool completely. Strain out all solids and pour into a clean container. Add the witch hazel and stir or shake gently to combine the mixture.

2. To use: Pour a small amount of the toner onto a clean cotton ball and rub over your scalp or massage lightly into your scalp after shampooing.
