  1. Gather your ingredients

    Get 1 tablespoon of raw honey, 3 tablespoons of filtered water and a few drops of essential oil. The essential oil is optional but adds a light fragrance to the shampoo and helps prevent flaky scalps. Try a lavender or carrot seed oil.

  2. Heat the honey over the stove

    Pour 1 tablespoon of raw honey into a small pan, and heat it over very low heat on the stove. Let the heat dissolve the honey until watery.

  3. Mix the ingredients together

    Combine the tablespoon of raw honey with 3 tablespoons of filtered water and 2 to 3 drops of essential oil in a bowl. Stir vigorously to ensure all the ingredients mix together. Storing raw honey with water can foster mold growth, so only make the shampoo when you need it. You do not need to pair the shampoo with a conditioner. To apply the shampoo, wet your hair, and massage a few tablespoons of the mixture onto your scalp.
