How cool is this -- clarifying rinse! Vinegar has been long known as a home remedy for all kinds of things. Today I have your the recipe for making your own clarifying hair rinse to free your beautiful locks from any and all gunk and build-up that may be keeping your moisturizers from penetrating and offering the best benefit.
And as a former hair stylist, I know first-hand how annoying build-up on the hair can be. I typically use a clarifying rinse or shampoo every two weeks. The hair tends to get overly dry when you clarify too often. Just be absolutely certain you follow your rinse or shampoo with a moisturizer to replenish all that the rinse has stripped away. You'll feel like you've got a new head of hair!
Let's get to it!!
Ok, so there are basically two types of oil diffusers I want to touch on. There's ultrasonic and nebulizing; depending on what you want to do will determine which diffuser you'll want to purchase. I took a visit to my local Earth Fare to check out what they have to offer. By far, the majority offered were ultrasonic....personally, I think it was a cost thing. So let's get right into the similarities and differences.
I'm so excited by the increase in attention to diffusing oils as a means of home fragrance! I love essential oils and how beneficial they are to our overall health. I, too, use a diffuser. So I feel it's only right to share some thoughts on diffusers and essential oil. After that, I'll share my favorite recipes.
Ok, so I've ALWAYS loved Rosemary. It has this pleasantly distinct smell and is perfect for a potted plant at my front door. I use it to keep mosquitoes away and other bugs in the garden on my deck, but I've recently found it's got wonderful antiseptic and astringent properties.
I'm sorry....I really am. I don't have a viable recipe for using Rosemary for acne, but rest assured I'm working on it. For now, I'd say use a Rosemary hydrosol---my husband has experienced great results for the acne he tends to get after a fresh haircut and shave. His preferred Rosemary hydrosol is from Mountain Rose Herbs. Check out the links I've included here. Absolutely LOVE their products! Give it a go! Comment below on your personal recipes or regimens!
