Impart shine,softness, and fresh herbal scent to your hair by using this natural and enchanted rinse recipe :

3 drops neroli essential oil
1 handful of soapwort flowers
To make the Moon water*,pour 4 cups of spring water into a glass jar.
Hold the jar up before Lady Moon and ask for her blessing upon it.
Place it on a porch or windowsill so that it can absorb the Full Moon light until the next day dawns.Bring the jar in and set aside.Chop the nettle, rosemary, & soapwort leaves and place in a non-reactive pan.Pour the Moon water over the herbs,bring to a boil,cover,and simmer gently for 30 minutes.Remove from heat,cool,and strain through cheesecloth into another sterilized glass jar.Stir in the lemon juice,essential oils,and soapwort flowers.Infuse the brew for 30 minutes.Use as a final rinse after washing your hair : remainder keeps for 24 hours if refrigerated.
