How to Make a Dandruff Shampoo with Essential Oils!

 Cold weather, hard water, keeping sock hats on your head in the winter and stress can cause dandruff. For years, I have formulated different kinds of Organic shampoos with essential oils as a product researcher, developer and Registered Aromatherapist. 

Lately , I have been getting a lot of questions about how to make a Dandruff Shampoo. So here it goes-

DANDRUFF SHAMPOO with Essential Oils

Dandruff1 (8oz) bottle Organic unscented Shampoo

2 Tablespoons Jojoba Oil

2 capsules Vitamin E Oil

10 drops German Chamomile ( Matricaria chamomilla L. (Syn : Matricaria recutita L. / Chamomilla recutita (L.) Rausch.)

10 drops Cajeput (Melaleuca leucadendron L. (Syn : Melaleuca leucadendra L.) or Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus radiata A.Cunn. ex DC. (Syn : Eucalyptus australiana R.T.Baker & H.G.Sm. / Eucalyptus phellandra R.T.Baker & H.G.Sm.)

 In a large bowl, mix Organic Shampoo,  Jojoba, Vitamin E together ; then add essential oils into the mixture. Mix thoroughly. Wash hair twice. Rinse well. Air Dry hair. 

Also remember that during the winter we are more confined and sometimes it is more stressful because we can’t get out and about as we would other times of the year. I always take more B vitamins especially B12 to help me through the winter.

Dynamic Detox Program

Hello,
2016 has started off wonderful, with our new group of Dynamic Detoxers !! They have been on the DYNAMIC DETOX program now for over 10 days. They are having excellent results and really enjoying their the foods, juices and starting to really use the recipes that we offer them in the program. My daughter, Zoe helped with the recipes because she has always loved to cook and it was fun for her to develop the menus and help make these healthy and anti-inflammatory recipes. All of the Dynamic Detoxers have decided to continue on the 7 day  part of program. This is truly awesome. Below is photo of the organic fruits and vegetable juices that they drink each day to give them vitamins, minerals and enzymes.

As each Dynamic Detoxers goes through the detoxification process ; we discuss what are the solutions to their challenges and they are also journaling each day to help them go inward and rediscover their inner selves. I use essential oils in the Dynamic Detox program to help with emotional balance, mental clarity, inflammation and much more. Last night, we went Live again for the 3rd time with the “Essential Detoxing with Essential Oils Webinar.”  I am so happy to share about how essential oils aid the detoxification process.

Daily Essentials for Stress!

Hello,

We  all have daily stress in our lives. Essential oils are excellent to help balance, relax and soothe the nervous system. I use them regularly in a massage oil or bath each day to help me handle my daily activities that I need to participate in and the ones that I add because I love doing them.  I do my best to focus on the positive each and every day. Stress can come from the exterior such as your job, relationships and the environment and it can come from within when we have anxieties about not being perfect, and  trying to do everything. Every organism in the world has to have some form of stress to survive .Here is a blend of essential oils that will help you when feeling stressed out.

5 drops Refuge blend – you can purchase from Natures Sunshine products

5 drops Red Mandarin Essential Oil

2 drops Frankincense Essential Oil

1/2 oz Carrier oil

Combine the essential oils with the Carrier Oil in a ½ oz. /15ml Roller ball bottle. Roll the bottle between your hands to mix the contents together. Apply twice daily or as needed to the temples, forehead, back of neck, creases in the wrists and elbows  and corresponding reflex points on the hands and feet.

Keep it in your purse or pocket.

Contraindications: Do not use in pregnancy. Phototoxic.

 

Daily Essentials Halloween Magical Pumpkin Cookies

Hello,

This time of year is always fun because you have bounty of the Autumn harvest and many delicious recipes made with Pumpkin and squashes. I love Pumpkin for its taste as well as the beta carotene that it contains, and all the lovely spices that go with Pumpkin.  One of the spices is cinnamon. I have been discussing cinnamon essential oil on the #NSPessentialOilsRoCk Facebook group.

Instead of using cinnamon powder in this Autumn recipe I have chosen to use 1 drop of cinnamon essential oil. I want to explain to you that Cinnamon as an essential oil can be considered as a flavoring for food however I also want to make it clear that is no research to my knowledge on essential oils that prove that they have nutrients in them; they have chemical constituents which can be used in skin care such as massage oils, bath gels, creams, salves etc and in food as a flavoring.  They are extracted by steam distillation and they no longer have the nutritional value that you would get from it if you ate the plant itself.

Thus I am using Cinnamon essential oil purely as a flavoring in these Magical Pumpkin Cookie recipe.

 

Recipe:

Preheat Oven: 350°
Makes 24 more or less Cookie

Dry Ingredients:

1/2 cup Organic pecans

1/2 cup Organic sunflower seeds

2 cups Organic Spelt or  OrganicGluten free flour

1 1/2 cups  Organic Oats

1 teaspoon Baking Soda

1 teaspoon Organic ginger

Mix flour, oats and baking soda.

Wet ingredients:

1/2 cup Organic Brown Sugar

1/2 cup Organic Sugar

1 cup Organic Butter

Mix thoroughly.

Pumpkin mixture:

1 Organic egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup Organic canned pumpkin or bake an Organic pumpkin and take out the inside then mash it and use 1 cup of it instead of canned pumpkin.

1 drop Cinnamon essential oil.

Mix Pumpkin, egg and vanilla. then add cinnamon oil. Mix thoroughly.

Mix Pumpkin mixture and wet ingredients. Fold in dry ingredients. Place cookies on cookie sheet that have been lined with baking paper.

Use Pumpkin seeds  for decoration to make pumpkin faces and stem on pumpkin cookies.

Enjoy!

Do you suffer from Poor digestion?

Hello,

It is that time of year when the fall harvest of crops has begun which includes pumpkins, squashes, almonds, beets, salads, broccoli, artichokes and many other crops. Pumpkins and different kinds of squashes are very beneficial for the digestive system. This is also the time of year that the body needs to be detoxed/ cleansed due to  summer indulgence and then becoming more confined in the winter. In the coming weeks I will be giving you information more on Dynamic Detoxing. Today, however I would like to share with you my video on Daily Essential Digestion that will support your digestive system.

 

Essential Digestion Formulation:

5 drops Peppermint Essential Oil

5 drops Lemon Essential Oil

2 drops Clove Essential OIl

1/ 2 oz.  Carrier Oil

Place essential oils and carrier oil  in  1/2 amber bottle. Roll between your hands to combine ingredients. Massage on stomach area and corresponding reflex points on hands and feet.

Make sure you make a label stating the name, ingredients and date that you made the formulation along with the contraindications.

Contraindications: Do not use in pregnancy, nursing or with children under 6 years old. Phototoxic.

Remember that Detoxing improves digestion, too. You can check out my booklet, “Essential Detox,” at http://www.lorriehargis.com/blog/new-detox-booklet-available/

3 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil
3 drops Lavender Essential Oil
6 drops Frankincense Essential Oil

In a bowl,mix the Salve and Aloe Vera Gel until they are blended well together. Add the essential oils and mix thoroughly. You will have a very cool, refreshing salve to the touch. Wash cuts thoroughly and place Ointment on cuts. Repeat as needed.

Daily Essentials: Antiseptic Spray

Hello Everyone,

I am back from Indiana. It was an awesome experience. The Essentials for Ailments Workshop had an excellent turn out; people standing by to come into the workshop. I am so grateful for the wonderful students that I was so privileged to have in my workshop. I learned so much from them. I really enjoyed giving my Presentation on How to infuse essential oils into the IN.FORM program;  How to use essential oils for Detox; How to integrate essential oils with Chinese Herbs. The audience was so reciprocating.

My new booklet ” Essential Detox” was a hit in Indiana. If you weren’t in Indiana you can purchase on this blog my new booklet to go with your new Detox products or Detox program.  I know when I start my next DETOX program group in a few weeks this booklet will be a must read.

Well, I just start to get back into the swing of things in France and I am taking off again to Sri Lanka the island of spices at the end of this week. However before I take off to see this lovely island I want to share this Antiseptic Spray with you. This is the time of year everyone is back at work full time, children are back in school so we are exposed to more bacterias and viruses.  For this Fresh and Uplifting Antiseptic Spray, I chose Lemon Essential Oil because it has a fresh, sharp scent ,Peppermint Essential Oil for its fresh, minty scent along with Frankincense which is warm, balsamic ,sweet incense like scent. All these essential oils are antibacterial, antiviral and antiseptic which makes an excellent Antiseptic Spray that you can use in your office, classroom ( as long as it is ok’ed by the school and there are not certain students (autistic) who would be irritated by these scents) and your home.

Here is the recipe:

20 drops Lemon Essential Oil

16 drops Peppermint Essential Oil

10 drops Frankincense EssentialOil

2oz of water

2oz Amber bottle with sprayer

Place essential oils and water in bottle. Roll between your hands and shake to mix the essential oils into the water. Please remember to shake the bottle before usage because water and essential oils do not mix. Spray in all four corners of the room.

Here is the video:

 

Can’t wait to share with my adventure to Sri Lanka.  Please feel free to leave a comment.

Don’t Forget your Essentials, Use your Common Scents!

I know I won’t when I go to Sri Lanka.

Au Revoir,

Lorrie
