Clarifying Dandruff Rinse

The antiseptic and healing herbs in this rinse kill the fungus which causes  dandruff.

1 cup distilled water

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

10 drops lavender essential oil

5 drops rosemary essential oil

3 drops tea tree oil

In a small heavy-bottomed saucepan, slightly warm the water (110 degrees). Combine the remaining ingredients in a large plastic cup. Add the warmed water and stir to mix. Massage into your scalp for a minute or two before rinsing thoroughly. Yield: 1 application.
