I used 3cups distilled water and placed 2TBSP of marshmallow root in water. Let it seep for a few hours then added 1TBSP of each: horsetail, nettle, and burdock to water. I used frozen sliced okra, a cup full, and the low boiled it for 30mins.

I then strained and added my ingredients. Got a 2cup yield, so I doubled the amounts as listed below since these are all per 8oz or 1 cup yield of product. ..

After I strain I immediately added:
1/4 tsp of magnesium flakes(enhancer)
1/4+1/8 tsp of agave nectar(1/2 left my hair too coated, like KCCC did)
1/2 tsp sucragel(shine)
1/4 tsp vit E oil(preservative)
1/4 tsp citric acid(preservative)
1/4 tsp potassium sorbate, (presrrvative)

I'm thinking of using honey instead of agave nectar in my nect batch and maybe just a few drops of grapeseed oil. Since its not even full summer yet in FL :!

I keep one 3oz bottle in fridge and others in freezer. Just to be on the safe side
