can I substitute coconut oil for the beeswax? I have for a few years now been making my own cologne/perfume and would love to give the solid form a try. I do know that by letting your mixture of essential oils sit in a dark place for a few weeks it will intensify the scent.

Is it safe to use the metal lid from the makeshift boiler again for cooking foods with, even after the essential oils are added? I would like to try this at home but this has been making me question it...

Post image for Going No ‘Poo: Yea Or Nay?

No ‘Poo. It’s a term I’ve heard quite a bit on the internet — and one that’s always intrigued me, although I’ve never mustered up the courage to try it myself… until now. Maybe. Read more »

Hi :) I actually have a condition on my scalp that is very reactive to astringent shampoos. - that's the normal chemical stuff. So out of desperation I used the no poo-method and oh-my-god. I swear. I actually can touch my hair without dandruff falling everywhere. Now, as for the bakin soda, yeah that's important at the start but as your hair starts to get used to the new system of washing it will balance itself out until eventually you //won't need it!// You'll work all the way down to just using water. :)

Have you ever considered shampoo bars? If you find the right kind it can do wonders for you hair. They are made up of pure carrier and essential oils. I've been using them for a few months and saw beautiful results after just a few weeks of washing. The reason people's hair wigs out after a few months of using the no poo method is because baking soda is actually very bad for the hair over time. It can make your scalp dry and brittle and honestly you'd be better off using commercial shampoo. I highly recommend a shampoo bar they're cheap, natural, and make hair healthy. I am a full believe in them and I will never use any other shampoo for as long as I can help it. And they are very convenient they are the size of a regular body bar and is equal to a 24oz bottle of shampoo. I didn't believe that at first but the first bar I bought lasted me almost 4 months and I have long wavy hair that needs a bit of shampoo to get it clean. Also I don't need a conditioner anymore. In If fact, if I prefer the results without it and for the first time in a long time, I'm living my natural texture. There are a lot if shampoo bars to pick from. I get mine from JR. Ligget and Apple Valley Natural Soap. You can even make your own and add the oils and scents you prefer and its so easy! I haven't yet but I will as soon as I use up the bars I have now. I can't rave enough about them and I really think they will work for you, or for anyone in that matter. I did have a small adjustment phase but it lasted like a week and it wasn't even that bad, I just washed my hair more often in that time because I knew the bars weren't going to harm my hair. I only wash my hair every about every four days now. You could wash it everyday if you wanted because the shampoo bar won't strip all the natural oils, but the thing is you don't have to, I'm lazy and my hair looks great after 3 or 4th day hair so why bother? Anyways I hope this helped and I hope you give it a try. My hair look great, feels great, smells great, what more could you ask for. Just remember to remove all of the silicone from your hair before you start and you're good to go. Also I rinse my hair with an apple cider vinegar rinse once a week. I use 1 part vinegar 3 parts water, but it varies for each person. Pour over hair after you shampooed, leave for 5 to 10 minutes, rinse out with cool water and Vuala! You're on your way to beautiful healthy hair.
