Chamomile and lemon natural hair highlighter. 

 

Brew a cup of chamomile tea for roughly 15-20 mins.

Add one tea spoon of lemon juice (no more than that - as lemon in higher quantities will dry out your hair)

Pour into an old jam jar or a travel bottle.

Apply to wet hair.After you’ve washed and conditioned your hair, rinse it with the chamomile lemon tea (I tend to avoid my scalp).

 

The chamomile does not need to be rinsed out - it will continue to work when hair is dry.

Blondes can see hair lighten about half a shade, while brunettes might see a subtle brightening of their natural highlights.

 

The tea should last for about 4 washes so don’t go overboard with how much you use.

I usually keep my tea for a week before starting a new batch.

Rosewater

You will need: 5 organic roses

 

Peel the petals and rinse them.

Place in a saucepan and add just enough water to cover the roses.

 

Boil the water, once water is boiling turn on to low heat and let it simmer until rose petals have lost all their color. Roughly 10-15 mins.

 

Cover with a lid and let it cool down. then pour rose water through a sieve into holder. ( I used one of my refill travel sized bottles) 

 

 

How to use it : 

 

Rose water works as a natural toner - use it after cleansing your skin and before applying moisturizer.

Homemade rose water can last up to 3 months if stored in the fridge. 

 

Tip : choose strong smelling roses for a lovelier smelling rose water.

Homemade

Coffee Scrub

Mix some melted coconut oil with some leftover coffee grinds (make sure you use more coffee than coconut oil). Voila, you have a natural body scrub that you can use in the shower!

 

 The coffee grinds will exfoliate your body and the coconut oil will moisturise your skin.

Homemade Toothpaste

Mix a big heap of coconut oil with half a teaspoon of baking soda and 8-10 drops of peppermint essential oil.

 

And there you have it, you've made your own toothpaste!

The coconut oil in your mixture will solidify. Don't hesitate to give it a good stir before each use.
