I thought I would try making some do it yourself hair gel using flaxseeds. I recall there was a recipe on the old board, but alas, I cannot find it. Can anyone here help, please? Thanks!:cheer:

I'm remembering this from mira-chan's recipe and how I made it...

2 cups water
2 tablespoons flax seed

Boil water and flax seeds until the liquid becomes viscuous.

Strain and set aside in container to cool. Add a couple of drops of EO, if you would like to.

I made up a mini test batch last night and I am amazed at how well it works! I added a drop of Patchouli oil and now I get a nice little whiff of scent around my head. Sweet! Thanks, everyone who helped.:D
