Homemade Citrus Bliss Shampoo! Homemade Citrus Bliss Shampoo with 6 all-natural ingredients! Make your own shampoo with this easy recipe. Great citrus scent to leave your hair smelling clean and fresh! Great DIY gift idea! Check out this simple recipe here!

Homemade bath and body products are not only a very popular item to make, they are wonderful to gift. With the holidays coming up, I personally have been brainstorming DIY products that I could include in baskets for family and friends.  I tried a couple formulations and came up with this Citrus Bliss Homemade Shampoo. It smells heavenly and really brightens up your shower experience with the light fresh scent. Another way I save money and reduce waste is by upcycling bottles to put my gifts in! This particular bottle is from a popular iced coffee drink.  You want to use glass not plastic, because citrus oils eat away at most plastics.

***Be careful when storing and handling glass bottle in the shower. I leave mine just outside on a shelf and pour just as much as I need into my hand when ready to wash.

Directions:

Remove label,clean bottle well, drain. If you have a hard time getting the adhesive off your bottle add a drop of lemon oil and a tiny bit of cooking oil, rub it in and let sit for 10 minutes-it should scrub away with a dry rag easily.

Use a funnel to add all ingredients to bottle.

Replace lid and shake gently to combine well.

*Shampoo will not suds up like typical store bought because it is missing the sulfates that can be harmful and cause buildup-this may take a little getting used to.

Shake each time before use.

Add a ribbon and a handmade label to identify your gift, put it in a pretty basket with some other handmade items, a magazine, candle, or other bath time luxuries for a thoughtful gift.

    That sounds lovely! I’ve never heard of putting honey in shampoo. Does it leave a residue?

    Wow, this looks great! This may be a silly question, but what’s the difference between using raw honey and regular honey you get at the store? I don’t have any raw honey on hand, so I’m wondering how much it matters.
