Miranda Kerr shares her organic shampoo recipe
Bring 1½ cups of distilled water to a boil in a medium saucepan, and then remove from heat. Add 1 tbsp of dried lavender flowers, 1 tbsp of dried rosemary, 1 tbsp of dried nettle and 2 tbsp of dried chamomile flowers.
Cover the water and herb mixture tightly, and allow it to steep for at least 30 minutes. Any other essential oil may be substituted for lavender, if necessary or desired.
Strain the liquid into a medium-sized bowl, and add 1 tsp of jojoba oil (organic if possible). Stir vigorously to combine.
Add ½ tsp of lavender essential oil and half a cup of organic castile soap, and stir thoroughly. Pour the shampoo into a plastic squeeze bottle, and label with the contents and date.
Store the organic shampoo in the refrigerator to preserve freshness. A small bottle can be kept in the shower for no longer than a week, if desired. Use 1 tbsp per application. Shake the bottle before use to mix any oil that has separated.
