Carry a little bottle of this infusion with you for a freshen up or use it underneath other styling products.

INGREDIENTS

3 cups Distilled or Purified Water
2 tsp Marshmallow Root
1 tsp Horsetail
1 tsp Oatstraw
1 cup Aloe Vera Juice

  2. Take decoction off heat and remaining herbs. Let rest at least 15 more minutes.
  3. Strain through cheesecloth-lined sieve into bottle when cool.
  4. Add aloe vera juice (if the infusion results in less than one cup,  just use equal parts aloe vera juice so it is half decoction and half aloe juice)
  5. Allow to cool and pour into a spritz bottle.
  6. Spritz on and work through hair.
