How to make home made hair oil
To make coconut milk – Cut one coconut in small pieces, put in the mixi, with very little water. Sieve it through a muslin cloth; we’ll use only the milk.
For sprouted Methi – Take 2 big aloe vera leaves. Insert a knife to slit the leaf vertically from one thorny edge, so the leaf can still be closed. Put methi seeds inside with a spoon while pressing in-between, and close the leaf. You can tie it gently with a lace or a cloth.
Keep it aside for 24 hrs. The Methi seeds would sprout in this much time. Take the seeds out, we’ll be using these for the oil.
Take the coconut and sesame oil in a pan. I prefer to take an iron Kadai for this. This would not give a green colour to the oil. It’ll make it very dark but will add some iron in the process.
Add the sprouted methi seeds, coconut milk, curry leaves, Fresh aloe Vera leaves – cut in pieces, red Hibiscuss flowers and boil on low heat. This take quite a while, one should boil until the oil is dark, without a trace of water in it. The curry leaves will turn dark and aloe Vera looses it’s stiffness when done. Also the oil will float and the fried, dark herbs will sit at the bottom.
Its necessary that all the water is removed from the oil else it won’t last long enough. To be sure add a few methi seeds when the oil starts getting fumes, if they pop, then turn off the gas.
Strain the oil in small dark bottles when cool.
If done in iron pan, it’s a dark green/brown oil, it smells of Methi and curry leaves. If done properly the oil will last for one and a half to 2 years easily.
To make it even more effective you can add almond oil after the oil is strained in bottles. You can also add a few drops of rosemary essential oil for hair growth.
Use it often and enjoy healthy hair.
