Calendula and Rosemary Hair Rinse

An herb-infused hair rinse can be used to aid in the removal of dirt or residue from the hair. It also adds shine and leaves hair feeling soft and clean.

Author Stacy Karen of www.adelightfulhome.com


  • 2 cups apple cider vinegar
  • 2/3 cup fresh rosemary
  • 1/3 cup dried calendula


  1. You will also need: mason jar and non-metallic lid


    Place herbs in a large jar and pour apple cider vinegar over them. If they are not completely covered, add more apple cider vinegar.

    Place lid on jar and leave rosemary to sit for about three weeks.

    Strain out the rosemary and keep your rosemary-infused vinegar in a glass bottle.

    Quick Method

    If you need it sooner, warm the herbs and apple cider vinegar in a pot over low heat.

    Once the vinegar begins to simmer, remove from heat and cover with lid. Let sit for 30 minutes to an hour. 

    Strain out the herbs and pour infused-vinegar into a clean jar.

    To use

    Mix 1/4 cup of herbal vinegar into one quart of water and pour over hair. This will remove soap residue and leave hair soft and shiny.

    For ease of use, pour this mixture into a spray bottle and keep it in the shower. Spray hair all over and allow to sit for a few minutes before rinsing out.

    Keep away from eyes.
