Elderflower or Chammomile Hair Rinse

This is ideal as a final rinse after washing your hair every so often, it helps strip excess grease out of our hair[if you use conditioner regularly it can build up on your hair and make it look really greasy] using this makes hair to look soft and silky lighten the hair naturally and also makes it smell relatively pleasant. Another reason to dry lots of elderflowers/chammomile if like me you have fair hair. The dried flowers let you make this for when you need to use it

Ingredients

2 litres/3 1/2 pints water
2 handfuls dried elderflowers or 4 handfuls of fresh flowers
1 lemon

*If choosing to use chammomile replace the elderflowers with the chammomile

Method

Gather the ingredients together and then place either your fresh or dried flowers into a large bowl.

Boil the water and pour it over the elderflowers or chammomile stirring thoroughly. Then leave to steep until the flowers are infused in the water. Leave until cold. Squeeze the juice of the lemon and drain it.*

*Don't waste the lemon peel dry it

Strain the liquid and discard the elderflowers or chammomile. Add the strained lemon juice pour into pretty bottles, cork and seal securely. Use a cup full or so for a final rinse.
