Vinegar Hair Rinse Favors

Homemade Vinegar Hair Rinse Favors | Evermine Blog |
Though I’ve never met Rosemary Gladstar, a renowned North American herbalist, I humbly consider her one of my herbalism mentors. As I’ve gotten to know her, especially through her book Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health, I realize this lady knows how to do it right. She discusses the importance of creating a special bathing place, expounds on her concept of true beauty, and provides countless well-worn herbal recipes. The following is adapted from her recipe for herbal vinegar hair rinse, but I urge you to check out her wonderful book because she shares many more tips and considerations than I can elaborate here.

I thought Ms. Gladstar’s herbal hair rinse would make a lovely shower favor—perhaps for a bridal shower or a baby shower.

  4. Divide the vinegar into plastic pump bottles (stainless steel bottles will become corroded by the acidic vinegar; glass is a little dangerous for the shower or bath). Include instructions on the bottle: Enjoy as a scalp massage once a fortnight. Dilute 1 part vinegar rinse with 5 parts water.
