Baths And Shampoos

How to Make Shampoo From Coconut & Sunflower Oil

Many shampoos sold in stores are too harsh and drying to the hair. For people looking for an herbal product made from natural ingredients, homemade shampoos are a great alternative. These can be made with a variety of ingredients, but most start with a little bit of castile soap. Castile soap is a gentle cleaner that comes in the form of liquid and flakes. It can be mixed with your favorite oils, such as coconut and sunflower oil. Coconut oil is great for treating dandruff as well as damaged hair. Sunflower oil is great for dry hair and scalp.

~ Heat the distilled water in a pot. Allow water to heat until it comes to a boil.

~ Steep the herbs. Place the rosemary, sage, and lemongrass into a tea strainer. Place the tea strainer into the boiling water. Let the herbs steep in the water for 30 to 45 minutes. Remove the tea strainer and herbs from the water.

~ Add the castile soap, coconut oil, sunflower oil, tea tree oil and jojoba oil to the water. Be sure to stir the water until the ingredients blend together. Let the mixture cool.

~ Pour the shampoo into a plastic container with lid. You now have about 12 oz. of homemade shampoo made from coconut and sunflower oil. Apply the shampoo to your hair as desired.

~ Refrigerate the leftover shampoo. Since homemade shampoos contain no preservatives, they must be refrigerated. Shampoo must be used within one week.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.

 

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.

 

Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
