Infused Amla Herbal Oil Recipe

Hey Curls!

This year, I will continue my cycle of trying to use the most natural products possible, made right in my kitchen. As you all know, I love Amla oil and use it weekly for my pre-poo oil washes. I have had great success with it and have reaped the benefits since I’ve been actively using it. Today I was researching to see if there were any pure amla oil brands, as most of them are mineral or coconut (and in some cases sesame) oil based. I found that there is no pure amla oil, but the amla nut is infused into carrier oils, such as coconut, olive, caster, sesame oils, etc.  Oil infusions are great because you can get the benefits of spices and herbs by applying the oil to your hair! I found a good recipe, which combines Ayurvedic powders, dried herbs, and oils to create the ultimate conditioning oil! I will tweek this base recipe to fit my personal needs. Here is what Birraj of the Long Hair Care Community Forum used in the original recipe:
