      I just bought all of the ingredients but discovered I forgot coconut milk. There are other recipes without coconut milk so I will be trying one of them. Here is a recipe without coconut milk.

      Homemade Lavender Rosemary Shampoo

      1/2 cup Lavender Castile Soap
      1 1/2 cups distilled water
      3 tsp. virgin coconut oil
      1 – 3 drops YL Lavender essential oil
      1 – 3 drops YL Rosemary essential oil


      Melt coconut oil in a microwave safe dish. It should only take about 20-30 seconds to become fully liquefied.

      Combine water, coconut oil , castile soap, and essential oils in a pint mason jar and shake vigorously to combine.

      Pour into a plastic container to store and use. An empty shampoo bottle is a great container or you can pick up a new pump or squeeze bottle from the craft store.

      How to use homemade shampoo:
      Squirt a quarter sized amount of shampoo into the palm of your hand

      Rub hands together to create lather.

      Massage shampoo through hair, beginning at the roots.

      Rinse hair well with water as cold as you can tolerate; the cold water will seal your ends and provide a greater shine.

      I have read great reviews on homemade castile soap. If you do not want to make your own, there are shampoos made without parabens. You will just have to do a google search to get that list. Homemade shampoos are so much more cost effective than buying shampoo not to mention shampoo without parabens.
