    I love your skincare recipes-- but what the heck is "liquid castile soap?" I've never heard of it before.

    What herbs should we use? and I agree, what is "Liquid Castile Soap"?

    Castile soap has been around a long time. Kirk's is a well-known brand. If you can't find it at your local drugstore, try a whole foods or organic grocer. You should find the essential oils there as well.
    Rosemary and mint works well for oily hair. Lemon verbena would make a lovely floral/citrus fragrance.
    Stormy, do you have a cookbook on homemade health and beauty potions?
