In our previous post, we talked about foraging and we were lucky to find some beautiful, aromatic lavender and we had no real idea what we were going to do with it. We had about 2-3 tablespoons of coconut oil left in the jar so it clicked, why not try adding the lavender?! We heated the coconut oil until it was in liquid form and added about 2 teaspoons of lavender flowers. It smelled amazing and I wasn't so skeptical about putting it in my hair then :) I just focused on the ends and ran a brush through. Then I put my hair in a loose bun and went about my day. Simple as that!
I loved it, absolutely loved it. Every step I took I could smell the soothing lavender and the yummy coconut, it was divine.
I ended up leaving it in for about 8 hours. I imagine if you wanted, you could leave it for 1-2 hours just to try it. I'm thinking since we mixed in the calming lavender, you could put this on your hair before bedtime for sweet dreams :)
We plan on trying to mix the oil with essential oils. We have some peppermint oil and neroli oil. Both of which I'm excited about trying!
