Hey everyone! If you’re looking to add a lil’ something extra to your oils for your hot oil treatments or scalp massages, you can make your own! There are plenty of easy ways to infuse oils with fresh or dried herbs at your own house. I just made a scalp oil that will help the hair in the front of my head catch up to the rest of my hair, and improve the general condition of my scalp. I infused olive and coconut oils with peppermint, chamomile, brahmi, neem, amla, rosemary, and lavender! It’s not at involved as you may think, here’s how you can make your own oil infusion:

Hello everyone!! When I began the ayurvedic challenge, I originally planned to only change my hair regimen. However, the more I read about ayurveda, the more I wanted to try it in other parts of my life as well. So I decided to try incorporating ayurveda into my skin regimen. Let me give you some background on my skin situation…
Hello everyone! With things being so busy, I’ve definitely been neglecting my hair. It’s been terrible! I decided to use my trusty avocado dc to help my hair out with some moisture.
Avocado dc: (I never measure)
1/2 a ripe avocado
aloe vera juice (about 1/4 cup)
olive oil (about 1 Tbsp)
honey (about 2 Tbsp)
Hello everyone!! I’ve been thinking about using honey on my hair as a conditioner for a while, but I was having trouble convincing myself to use groceries as a hair treatment (We dont waste food over here. Lol!!). However, I’ve heard so many good things about it, I decided I will try it!!
Honey is beneficial to hair because it is a natural humectant, meaning it attracts and holds moisture. In addition to that, honey contains iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium, sulfur, zinc, and B vitamins!! PERFECT! Honey can be mixed with olive oil, and used as a conditioning treatment by itself, or mixed into your existing conditioner! I think I’ll try adding honey to a regular conditioner for my first try.
Honey Conditioning Treatment:
1/2 cup conditioner
1/4 cup honey
1 Tablespoon Almond oil (this will probably be grapeseed, since thats what I have.)
We’ll see how this works!! I’ll update you all with pictures soon!
Have you all ever used honey as a conditioner? Which recipes work best for you?
