Customizing a Shampoo Base is just about the easiest DIY projects you’ll ever try! What I really love about it, is that you get to play around with different varieties, until you find your absolute favorite mix of Essential Oils. In this video tutorial, I go through the basics of mixing a Shampoo Cosmetic Base with Essential Oils for three different varieties – Detoxing Peppermint & Tea Tree Shampoo, Relaxing Rosemary & Ylang Ylang Shampoo and Luxurious Rose Shampoo.

- Measure the desired amount of Shampoo Base (measured in ml.)
- Mix in up to 1-2% of Essential Oils of choice (measured in ml.)
- Stir the mixture until the ingredients are completely dispersed
- Keep in a bottle or glass jar, like you would any shampoo
Note: ensure that your shampoo base contains a preservative. Otherwise, you will need to add that additionally. Stephenson Shampoo Base already contains a preservative, hence I don’t need to add one.
