Flaxseed Chia Seed Gel
3 Tablespoons Flaxseeds
1 Tbsp Chia Seeds
1/4 cup aloe vera leaf juice
2 cups water
1 tsp castor seed oil (JBCO will also work well)
Your favorite 2 or 3 essential oils (I’m using a deep and sensual blend of patchouli, sandalwood, and ylang ylang)
Bring seeds, aloe vera leaf juice, and water to a boil. Immediately turn heat to medium-high for about 5 minutes. I like the consistency of my gel to be like an egg yolk (kind thick, slick and slightly runny). Simmer longer for thicker gel.
Strain immediately or you will have a thick glob of seedy gel that will make picking banana out of your hair seem WAAAAAAAAAAYYYYY easier…
As your gel cools add your oils (essentials and castor). If you’re using any extracts, add them here as well.
And that’s it! This mix will last in your refrigerator for about 2 to 3 weeks.
