spreads, dips., butters..or taken as is with a spoon!
you name it
There are many different preferences out there
how one wishes to use it best..for it's powerful nourishing properties and oils
Tell me your fave way!
It makes a wonderful Natural Hair Gel
Simple to make.. and must be stored in a jar in the fridge
and used within a week!
**For a nice scent**
( as the gel doesn't have much smell appeal..
add an essential/aromatherapy oil you like and stir in)
Natural Flaxseed Hair Gel
To create a small batch
*Take a few handfuls of raw whole flaxseeds
*place in a cheesecloth tie with band
*boil in a small pot with some water
Just so the cheesecloth mixture is sitting in a shallow bath
(you can add more water if needed..)
*Boil till goey gel begins to form
(Keep watch and you can agitate with a wooden spoon if you like)
More comes as you squeeze/press the cheesecloth
*You can let it cool down alittle afterwards when it is safe to handle
*(Take off the stove and out of the pot once it looks like the seeds have been fully activated)
*Then squeeze more goey gel out when cool, push with a wooden spoon and into a bowl..
*Transfer it to a clean bowl and mix to desired thickness, or leave as is..
*Once you are happy put it in a jar.
*add some esseintail oils/aromatherapy scents..
*Leave in fridge
*It may thicken up more
*and you will have to take it out earlier before using it.
*Alittle goes a long way...you don't need much, I am usually giving it away!
*Don't be fooled /even if gel comes out thinly..it is still super sticky and works great to run through hair!
****It take practice to find your secret formula! and what works for you
*It is very ooey gooey..and sticky...but also fun to make!
Try experimenting with your own blend and your own way to make it.
Try it out!
