Thursday's Recipe: Ayurvedic Hair Cream Recipe

A creamy leave in conditioner made with a blend of Ayurvedic oils.

Natural Beauty Workshop of Oxford, CT


1 ounce Amla Oil

1 ounces Mahabhringraj Oil

2 ounces Shealoe Butter


Gently melt the Shealoe Butter over medium heat in a double boiler. As soon as the Shealoe Butter has softened into a liquid, remove it from the heat and add the two Ayurvedic Oils. Whip the mixture until it cools. The cream should thicken slightly as it cools down, but will not become firm. If desired, add a few drops of your favorite Absolute, Attar, or Essential Oil. Jasmine Absolute would be a great choice. Transfer the mixture to a clean jar and allow it to cool completely.

This intensely moisturizing hair cream can be used in very small quantities to add targeted moisture, or to help a hair style hold its texture. Ayurvedic Hair Cream may be especially effective when applied to the ends of the hair, or when it is rubbed into the scalp as an overnight treatment. Please note that this formula may be too intense for some hair types. Experiment with a small amount before using a lot of product. Ayurvedic Hair Cream can be packaged in any 4 ounce jar. I particularly like using Flat White Cream Jars for this formula.
