When all else fails, take a bubble bath.

Herbal Shampoo Base

1 oz. dried Soapwort Root
2 quarts spring water
15 to 20 drops essential oil

Crush or grind soapwort root. Place ground root in a glass bowl. Bring water to a boil. Once boiling, poor over ground root at let steep an hour and a half. Once cooled completely, filter through a coffee filter or cheese cloth into a clean glass bottle or jar. Add your choice of essential oils.

If using herbs, add them to the bowl and steep with the soapwort. You will need to use more than you normally would with commercially prepared shampoos. Don't be alarmed if you don't get the same lather as commercial shampoos.
