Today, we are strolling through our children’s garden to find plants for an herbal hair rinse. Rosemary, lavender, anise hyssop, peppermint, thyme, and sage. Garden fresh flavours and scents of the Earth. Organic and pure, perfect in design, healthy and comforting, brew to cleanse hair, skin, mind, body, heart, and Soul. Baby-and-Me bath with tea leaves. A fortunate present moment together. Nothing wasted. Grown for good health, animals, and bees. A Dear One’s adventure. A garden of life!
Garden Herb Hair Rinse
Pick fresh organic herbs (no toxic sprays/chemicals/unnatural soil, use non-GMO plant seeds). Steep in hot water until golden. Breathe in the herbal steam. Strain herbs to use later for more tea or use in the bath. Drink some of this nourishing tea and/or add it into a bowl full of fresh, cool water. Rinse hair in shower/bathtub for a natural clean routine. Return plants back to the garden to compost when done. The fresh herbal scents will awaken your senses, letting in light, resting in openness, while keeping your hair, scalp, skin, and all healthy. Soften and condition hair and skin, if desired, with natural foods, like avocado below. Inside and out.
Water is the best way to clean. Start children off in life with habits that say: “You are wonderful just the way you are! Stay natural, be purely you!” (More positive inspiration for all ages is featured in my books, artwork, organic recipe lifestyle journal, all in The Shop at Dove Cottage, and amormilagre.com.
Avocado Hair & Skin Mask
A fresh mask for all ages. This is especially fun for kids to try this tactile, healthy bonding beauty tip. (Be aware of food allergies, as always). Mash up avocado, set aside most of it for the snack, and smooth some on face and hair, a little will do for children. Eat the avocado-wrap snack while the mask is on. Add in seeds, dried fruit, nuts, olives, and/or beans. Rest easy, and if with children, laugh and imagine funny green face/hair adventures. Rinse off gently. This beautifully coloured yellow-green routine is memorable and inspires more of the same, healthy, enjoyable habits for you and your Dear Ones. More garden shares are coming soon! xo ~Amor Milagre
