Same here, NOTHING beats FSG for price & performance.
I use 1/4 cup seeds to 4cups water and boil until it is a lighter brown color (so it's a bit thicker when cool). Imediately strain thru a fine mesh strainer. Allow to cool 2 minutes before adding extras.
I like veg. glycerin, epsom salts, orange essential oil, use a hair color applicator bottle to dispense (store in frig.) and the extra can be frozen.
