All Natural Lemon-Coconut Shampoo

lemon and coconutDoesn’t a lemon-coconut shampoo just sound yummy and divine? Well, whats even better is that this recipe is free of sulfates and parabens, is enriched with aloe vera and the fragrance comes from natural essential oils. It’s an adaptable recipe, as it can be used on just about any hair type, and unlike most other natural shampoos it still produces a creamy lather.

  1. Measure out your shampoo base. For an 8 oz container use about 1 cup.
  2. Add 1 tablespoon of organic coconut oil.
  3. Stir in the coconut oil slowly until your base turns to an opaque stale-like color.
  4. Add about 20 drops of  the lemon essential oil (use more or less depending on how strong you’d like it to be).
  5. Stir until completely mixed in.
  6. Store in a tightly closed mason jar.

Note:  You can use any essential oil/ fragrance of your choice. I’ve used grapefruit, pomegranate and even peppermint before.
