Herbal Highlights

There are many things you can do with dried flowers, but have you ever thought of using some to highlight your hair? Here is a fairly easy recipe. You will need these ingredients:

  • 1 cup chamomile flowers
  • 1/4 cup calendula flowers
  • 1 ounce of lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon virgin olive oil
  • 5 drops of lavender, rosemary, or peppermint essential oils
  • 1 1/4 quarts of water

In a pot, add the water and flowers. Allow to simmer for about fifteen minutes. Mash the herbs, then strain into a bowl or jar. Allow to cool. Add the lemon juice, olive oil, and essential oil. Stir or shake the solution. Add to a spray bottle and spray the solution on your hair. You may also just brush the solution on for streaks. Want to go all out? Then soak your hair in the solution for 20 minutes. Rinse with water or vinegar. Towel dry hair.
