I am definitely a believer in these natural remedies. Another great one to add is elderberry extract, which is proven to reduce flu symptoms and the likes. Also, if you're interested, I have a great recipe for a morning detox drink, perfect for boosting immunity and flushing toxins. http://www.remedyrogues.com/morning-detox-drink/

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...

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 »

I apologize for the long post in advance. I have med length hair and it is slightly think with some wave to it. I have been no poo for about 3 months now and I had yet to have that ‘Hallelujah’ moment. My hair was terrible! It was heavy gunky/waxy I didn’t have the smooth shiny beautiful hair everyone was talking about after the transition period. (made it through transition thanks to a week at the beach where I didn't have to do much to it!) Now I know I was done with the transition period bc my hair was different from the greasy mess it was in the beginning. I was looking around to figure out what the heck was wrong before I gave up on no poo I didn’t really want to go back I wanted to stick it out. I didn’t really keep good track of what I did to my hair but was trying all kinds of stuff from just water, to increasing and decreasing my BS, to switching between White vinegar and Apple cider vinegar and increasing and decreasing the amts of vinegar to really diluting both of them to using them at full strength. UGH! nothing worked! still had this like waxy build up. I FINALLY found what was wrong, HARD WATER! My husband said that our area is a 10 out of 10 for hard water (used to work for our city water dept) Through all my research I had found that if you have hard water the BS doesn’t dissolve in the water and therefore doesn’t clean your hair the way it should. So Friday night I boiled my amount of water that fits in my bottle( plus a little more bc you will lose some the evaporation. You also want to use a pan that is bigger bc when you add the BS it will fizzle and you don’t want a big mess) for about 10 mins. I then added a few tablespoons of BS and watched it fizzle. Once the water has cooled you can pour it into your bottle and voila! Use it like you have been using your BS mix and follow with vinegar. I finally noticed the slight lather everyone was talking about and when my hair was dry HALLELUJAH I had beautiful, smooth, shiny, awesome hair!!!! It is now Monday, usually I have to try some cute braid or some other type of up hair, but I have my hair half up and it is still gunk/wax free and BEAUTIFUL!! I love, love, love no poo and wont go back. If you feel you need the smell good from your shampoo you can always add some essential oils to it and you have pretty smelling hair.

For the love of all that is Holy please do NOT use Baking Soda on your hair! No one should be washing their hair with it ever! Baking Soda is an ALKALINE, like bleach, (pH of 9ish), your hair and skin are ACIDIC (pH for 4ish). If your true goal is to have a healthier scalp and hair, you wouldn't be messing with it's natural pH like that. A coconut milk and aloe no-poo is the best I've found as their pH is similar to that of your scalp. The Apple Cider Vinegar rinse can still be used as long as you dilute accordingly. I know some people swear by by the Baking Soda rinse, but these people are stupid. It does NOTHING for your hair except break down the shaft and dry it out. the fat and moisture from coconut milk and aloe actually help your hair and maintain your scalp's natural pH. You have no idea how mad I get when I see someone going on about Baking Soda rinses when they clearly didn't do their research. Below are some links further explaining Baking Soda's harmful effects. Always check who's driving the wagon before jumping on. http://www.thehippyhomemaker.com/dirty-hippy-truth-no-poo/ http://blog.kanelstrand.com/2014/01/baking-soda-destroyed-my-hair.html <<<<< this one is the best at explaining the chemistry, I found it very helpful when I started looking into no-poo methods.
