Lavender/Rosemary Hair Oil
This recipe is courtesy of Jeanne Rose "Kitchen Cosmetics"

q

1 oz. oil of Rosemary 1/8 oz. oil of Lavender

q

Quantity: Enough for about 6 months of use. To Make: Simply mix the two oils together and store in the dark or in a small amber or light-proof bottle. To Use: Put a few drops of the oil on your palm, brush your palm against your hairbrush and then brush your hair. Tip: Proper Hair Brushing: Every day, rain or shine, men and women should thoroughly brush the hair. Brushing dislodges dirt and distributes the natural hair oils. Bend at the waist (this increases circulation to the scalp) and massage the scalp with fingertips. Then brush hair starting at the nape of the neck with long easy strokes from nape to ends. Follow each of the brush strokes with your other hand to eliminate static electricity. Brush about 100 strokes in this upside down position. This is guaranteed to give new life to your hair.
