Hi, my name is Bob Linde. I'm an acupuncture physician and registered herbalist. Today, I'm going to talk to you about how to make an aromatic herbal root hair formula and there's a number of different herbs that we can use, but in particular I like using Rosemary or Chamomile. Rosemary is most effective if you have darker hair or Chamomile for lighter hair, but the Rosemary is one of the easiest to work with because we don't really have to worry too much about it going bad. You can use either fresh or dried, and all you really need to do is chop it up and use about a third of a container to two-thirds of olive oil, and I like to get a good rich and ideally organic olive oil. We can go ahead and either cook it under a low heat over a double boiler, or usually what I like to do is actually just go ahead and use it and let it infuse in the sun for about two weeks. Ideally, shaking it every day and making sure that you're not getting any bubbles coming off of it, or there's no mold or anything like that. Once we do that, we can then just go ahead and either leave the Rosemary in there, or we can go ahead and strain it off, and then go ahead and just massage that gently into the scalp, and it will really help in order to take care of any kind of fungal infections, and even in some cases can help to regrow hair. One of the nice benefits of Rosemary, in particular, it's a natural hair darkener. Although it won't necessarily get rid of all the gray, it can definitely help to take care of some of that hair that's changing color just a little bit, and in the case of Chamomile, it will also help to keep the blonde hair closer to blonde. So, this is Bob Linde, talking about how to make an aromatic herbal root tonic for the hair.
