2 Tablespoons Jojoba oil
3 Tablespoons Honey
3-4 drops of peppermint essential oil
1 Tablespoon grade A Honey

Rosemary Honey Hair Conditioner
The winter season can wreak havoc on hair making it feel and look like straw. Try this nourishing conditioner that combines honey to make hair shine; olive oil to put back lost moisture and essential oil of rosemary to stimulate hair growth.
• 1/2 cup Honey
• 1/4 cup warmed Olive oil (2Tablespoons for normal to oily hair)
• 4 drops of essential oil of Rosemary
• 1 tsp. Xanthum gum (available in health food stores)
Directions: Place all the ingredients in a small bowl and mix thoroughly. Pour into a clean plastic bottle with a tight fitting stopper or lid. Apply a small amount at a time to slightly dampened hair. Massage scalp and work mixture through hair until completely coated. Cover hair with a warm towel (towel can be heated in a microwave or dryer) or shower cap; leave on to nourish and condition for 30 minutes. Remove towel or shower cap; shampoo lightly and rinse with cool water. Dry as normal and enjoy shinier, softer and healthier hair the natural way. Shampoo and rinse well…
Honey Hair Shine Leave-in Finisher
For hair that shines and glows stir 1 teaspoon honey into 4 cups (1 quart) warm water. If you are a blonde a squeeze of lemon will bring back the luster of dull locks. After shampooing, pour mixture through hair. Do not rinse out. Dry as usual.
