Recipes & Mixes

Recipes & Mixes from Organic Beauty Experts:

Cleanser and Spritzer

2 8 oz spray bottles
Witch Hazel 86% (buy from any drugstore)
Sandalwood or Neroli Hydrosol (Distillate)
Tea Tree Essential Oil
Rosemary Essential Oil
Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
Plastic pipette (dropper)

In one spray bottle, use equal amounts of witch hazel combined with a hyrdosol (50/50 mix). Close bottle tightly and shake to blend.

Section hair into equal parts. Wet a cotton washcloth with mixture (a small amount) and methodically clean scalp until whole head is done.

For the spritzer, combine above mixture and add two drops of Tea Tree, 4 drops of Rosemary and 12 drops off Ylang Ylang. Avoid getting into eyes.


As your locs grow, keeping them moisturized and healthy is important to their continued growth. You can use this oil to touch up and add shine and keep them supple and soft.

Loc Oil

4oz bottle
2 oz shea oil
1 oz hemp seed oil
1/2 oz olive oil
1/2 oz carrot seed oil
Lemongrass (rosemary, sandalwood or cedarwood) essential oil

Combine all oils and add 8 drops of lemongrass oil. Pour into bottle and use daily to hydrate scalp and add moisture to locs. If you make an essential oil blend, use no more than 10 drops per 4 oz. of Loc Oil
