DIY PLANT-BASED POTIONS
Three signature blends from herbalist Amanda Cook you can create at home
Soak some daisy heads in sweet almond oil, then blend with lavender essential oil and beeswax. Heat it up, then allow it to cool and you’ll have created an everything balm that works on sore muscles, cuticles, lips and dry skin.
MARIGOLD FACIAL TONER
In a bowl, mix together apple cider vinegar, witch hazel, calendula and vegetable glycerine and, easy as that, you’ve just created a non-drying toner that’s great for combination skin.
ROSEMARY NETTLE HAIR RINSE
Rosemary encourages growth, nettles strengthen and apple cider vinegar cleanses and rebalances the ph of your scalp. Crush the plants, add the vinegar, leave for a fortnight, strain, then take it to the shower.
