Ayurvedic Shea Butter Hot Oil Treatment

So, while perusing etsy, I came across this Ayurvedic Body/Hair butter and thought it would be cool to try as a hot oil treatment.    I would only use this butter as a hot oil treatment since I don't really care for it as a daily sealer, I don't know why.  I guess it would depend on what Ayurvedic herbs I used, Anyhoo. This recipe would add the Ayurvedic benefits without all the mess and head dunking it takes to remove Ayurvedic pastes.   I have not yet made this, but here is how I would make it:

  • Shea Butter Hot Oil Treatment
    • 2 tbsp Shea Butter
    • 1tbsp Coconut Oil
    • 2 tsp Honey
    • Ayurvedic Infused EVOO
      • Orange Peel
      • Brahmi
      • Hibiscus
      • Bringraj
      • Methi
 You can use any or all  of these Ayurvedic herbs in your oil infusion,  but remember to not use too much, there can be too much of a good thing.  Sometimes  when formulating we get so excited about all the herbal possibilties and overdo it. 

Simply use the same method of application as the Shea Butter Hot Oil Treatment
