We've had to disable the website template for the blog as it interferes with the text display and causes bits of it to disappear completely.

It's a bit rough and unvarnished looking, but hey ho...:)

Saponaria officinalis



Soapwort , as its name suggests, contains natural saponins which results in a bubbly brew when boiled in water. Soapwort used in this way will rejuvenate dry, heat-damaged and bleached/dyed hair. Used weekly as a conditioner, it can restore shine to the hair. It can also be used as a calming wash for spots, eczema, rashes and nappy rash.


To use soapwort, place the leaves, stems, roots and flowers into a large pot, and add enough water to cover. Bring to the boil, then remove from the heat and leave to stand for 30 minutes. Strain and refrigerate. Use within one week.
