Is this any good?

Basic Shampoo recipe 150 ml water 2 tablespoons of Dr Bronner pure castile soap 1 tablespoon of glycerine 10 drops of suitable essential oil Suitable essential oils for shampoo include, lavender, myrtle which is good for greasy hair, ylang ylang and grapefruit, these can be blended. Please check the cautions of these essential oils and suitability before using. This is a basic recipe and can be adapted and added to with ingredients such as chamomile and various dried herbs, this would involve steeping the herbs or chamomile, tea bags being particularly useful in the water. Using boiled water, cooled to a warm temperature in a glass jug, add the glycerine and Dr. Bronner castile soap, add the essential oils a drop at a time until you reach the desired fragrance, do not exceed the 10 drops. Stir well. When cooled pour into an old shampoo bottle or any 250 ml plastic bottle and cap.

If you have made soap before then you can convert your soap recipe into using KOH for liquid soap.

Liquid soap is very labour intensive. I am in the middle of making a new batch of seaweed liquid shampoo.
