How to Relieve a Cold

The holiday season is here! Thanksgiving may be over and Christmas is right around the corner! My husband and son were sick in early November. It really worried me because I don’t have time to get sick. Thankfully, my husband and I rarely get sick and when we do, it is usually at staggering times. We cannot be sick at the same time because one of us has to care for our son.

Make your own shampoo

I recently made my first batch of homemade shampoo.  I’ve been wanting to do this for awhile and finally gathered all of the ingredients together.  I wanted to make my own shampoo because my hair can feel frizzy, dry and crunchy, and worst of all full of static.  I have been using my homemade shampoo for about a week now and love the results. 

I found 2 homemade shampoo recipes and they only have 3 or 4 ingredients.  If you are looking for all natural, environmentally friendly shampoo, you may want to try either of these recipes. 

Both recipes make a great 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner as well!

Homemade Shampoo #1

1 cup Dr. Bronner’s organic castile liquid soap (use baby mild for it’s versatility – works for the whole family)2 Tbs apple cider vinegar
¾ Tbs tea tree oil
¼ cup water
1 (16 oz) spray bottle or other container for application

Combine together and store in a spray bottle.  You can also add your own fragrances you desire, such as lavender, peppermint, etc.  This shampoo will be more liquidy than your standard shampoo.  Rubbing your hair first works well to activate the suds and then scrubbing into scalp.  Your hair will feel slightly more greasy than normal, but that is actually more natural anyway.  Most modern shampoos actually dry out your hair, removing the natural oils.

Homemade Shampoo #2

¼ Cup Water
¾ Cup Dr. Bronner’s organic castile liquid soap
4 teaspoons Apple Cider Vinegar

Combine all ingredients in a spray bottle.

As you can see, both recipes are customizable and you can even create your own “herbal shampoo” by adding your favorite essential oils.  If you can do without the name brand label or fancy bottle, this could be for you.

You can find Dr. Bronner’s castile liquid soap and apple cider vinegar at any health food store.  Otherwise, you can find both online!

I made the first recipe, but I used ½ cup of liquid castile soap.  You can adjust the ingredients to your own desire.  Instead of a spray bottle, I used one of those soap dispensers that make liquid soap come out foamy and it works just as well.  I don’t mind the liquidy feel of the shampoo, I am actually tired of the store bought shampoos because they make so many bubbles and strip my hair of it’s softness. 

Since I started using my own shampoo, my hair feels so soft, full of volume, much less static too!  I do not have to use a separate conditioner either!  I also love that I am saving money!
