Below are recipes for Rosemary shampoo we use in our house. The rosemary shampoo is for people with dark colored hair. If you have light colored hair substitute the rosemary with chamomile. All of the ingredients are pretty easy to find. One warning is that they are going to be watery because they don't have all the fillers that commercial ones do. I got the recipe from Natural Beauty at Home by Janice Cox.

Basic Shampoo (ingredient in the shampoo we use)
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup liquid soap such as castile soap
1/2 tsp light vegetable oil (I use grapefruit extract oil)

Mix together all ingredients. Pour the shampoo into a clean squeeze bottle. Makes 4 oz

Rosemary Shampoo (my 2yr old loves the scent)
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons dried or 1/3 cup fresh chamomile (for light colored hair), lavender, or rosemary (lavender and rosemary are for dark colored hair)
1/2 cup Basic Shampoo (see above)
2 tbsp glycerine

Mix together the water and herbs and heat gently to make a strong tea. Let the mixture steep for at least 20 minutes. Add the shampoo and glycerine to the herbal water mixture and stir well.

Pour the shampoo into a clean squeeze bottle or empty shampoo bottle. Let the mixture sit overnight to thicken. Shampoo as you would normally and rinse well. Yield: 8 oz

Thank you for the link!

Witch hazel IS good for so many things. It also helps sooth sunburn.

Another stand-by for me is baking soda. It has a multitude of uses.

Just to do a quick add on.

WitchHazel has been my face cleanser of choice since I was little. It removes makeup, oil, dirt, underarm stinks, vaginal itching (not that guys needed to know that, but it can help with jock itch too) and is great for hemorrhoids, bruises, sprains, etc...
