1 ounce fresh dried organic Calendula petals
2 cups hot water.
Add loose Calendula to a medium-sized bowl and pour hot (not boiling) water over the herb. Allow to steep covered overnight. In the morning or next day strain petals from infusion and compost used petals. Warm Calendula infusion to LUKEWARM (you can put your finger in it comfortably---not too hot!) and soak hair with it. Let sit 5-10 minutes with a warm towel wrapped around your hair. Rinse.
BE CAREFUL with the temp of your infusion so you don’t burn your scalp. This recipe is only good for 24 hours after that toss it out because “nastiness” will start to grow in it.
