Herbal Tincture for Hair

20140919-180707.jpg

Herbal tinctures – also known as extracts – are used to harness the benefits of plant material in a fairly potent format. Used internally for all manner of concerns, topical applications are now becoming more and more common.

What’s in my jar? Consumable alcohol {vodka} Rosemary, thyme, basil {African blue and Thai}, calendula, orange peel. I’ve chosen these herbs because they are what I have available, and there’s loads of anecdotal evidence that they contain properties that clean and stimulate blood flow to the scalp, thereby boosting healthy hair growth, volume and shine.

When it’s ready in 4 weeks, I will be adding it in my ‘scalp rescue’ formula {which I already have some success with} for tackling heavy buildup and dandruff on the scalp, with the added bonus of making hair feeling loved 🙂
