Power Shine Vinegar Rinse

I love this recipe. Especially since I use my own home-grown Alpine Rosemary It has a strong, fresh wake-up scent so best to do this during the day and not at night when you want to sleep. It is invigorating for the mind and hair, increases circulation to the scalp and closes the hair cuticle to a soft, sheeny finish.

Ingredients:

1 oz (25g) Fresh Rosemary Leaves
2 pints (1l) Apple Cider Vinegar
Apricot oil (for lite extraction) or Avocado Oil (for a deeper condition) to cover
1 clear or blue glass bottle with air-proof stopper
Cheesecloth

  1. Clean and sterilize your jar to the best of your ability.
  2. Pick one once 25g (1oz) fresh rosemary leaves. Do not bruise the leaves. Place into jar.
  3. Add oil to leaves to cover and place in a darkened cool place for at least 2 weeks.
  4. Using the cheesecloth, strain oil into smaller jars.
  5. Store in a cool, dry place and refrigerate if not using within 2 months.

To use as a rinse:

Before your shampoo, add 10 – 20ml (1 – 2  dessert spoons) of the Rosemary Vinegar to a jar of warm water and pour over your hair after your normal shampoo/conditioner routine as the final rinse.

As a treatment for dandruff and aid in hair growth:

On dry hair and before washing, massage the undiluted Rosemary Vinegar deeply and gently into your scalp. Leave on 20 – 30 minutes, then wash and condition as usual.

Modifications:

Try adding a few drops of Lavender EO or Veviter EO to both the final rinse and the dandruff treatments.

    Thank you for this recipe. I am unclear on the oil. Your list of ingredients does not include an oil, but the directions indicate that the leaves should be added to oil. What type of oil are you recommending?

  • Oops!!! Sorry about that, I left out the amount of oil... You can use the oil of you choice. An oil like Apricot will be a light formulation but for more conditioning, use an avocado oil. Again, my apologies and I will fix up the ingredient list.

    I would really love to try this but I'm not sure... When do you put the vinegar in? Does the vinegar and oil sit for 2weeks with the rosemary leaves?
