    You'll have to find out what the recommended portions for your particular base are. Each manufacturer has different recommendations, based on the ingredients. For New Directions base, the portions are no more than 0.5% or 5 ml essential oil per L.

    Here are some ideas for things to add:

    Herbals
    Normal hair – burdock root, catnip, fennel, horsetail, nettle, lavender, rosemary
    Oily hair – lavender, lemon balm, lemongrass, peppermint, rosemary, witch hazel, yarrow
    Dry hair – comfrey, chamomile, elder flower, marshmallow root, nettle, parsley, sage
    Fragile – st. john’s wort, nettle, basil, sage, rosemary, marigold
    Dandruff – burdock root, chamomile, parsley, rosemary, nettle, thyme

    EOs
    Normal hair – carrot seed, eucalyptus, geranium, lavender, lemon, rosemary
    Oily hair – basil, cypress, eucalyptus, lavender, lemon, peppermint, rosemary, thyme
    Dry hair – carrot seed, chamomile, frankincense, geranium, lavender, rosemary, sandalwood
    Fragile – carrot seed, lavender, chamomile, parsley, thyme, sandalwood, clary sage
    Dandruff – cedarwood, patchouli, rosemary, sage, tea tree, thyme

    COs
    Normal hair – sweet almond, jojoba, evening primrose, borage seed
    Oily hair – evening primrose, sesame seed, borage seed
    Dry hair – sweet almond, jojoba, evening primrose, borage seed, avocado, sunflower

    Shawnette you are AWESOME! :happy3:

    I want to post your conditioner base for others too
    1.5oz lecithin liquid
    1.5oz almond oil,
    .5oz jojoba oil
    .5oz cocoa butter

    Mix in a double boiler until smooth.
    (If you don't have a DB, you can use my ghetto method: pour boiling water into a bowl and sit a smaller bowl inside. works awesome!)

    Cool and pour into a jar. There is no water involved, so it should keep fairly well. You can add honey, horsetail, nettle, or whatever else you like.
