Japakusum or shoeflower hair oil arrests premature graying of hair as recommended by Ayurveda. This oil can even maintain the natural pigment of your hair. This home made Japakusum hair oil can be stored as long as 3 months.
Crush the dried herbs in a blender. Add enough water to make a paste.
Pour 100 ml of Sesame oil in a stainless steel vessel.
Add the herbal pastes and the remaining water and boil on a low flame. Continue stirring till all the water evaporates and only the oil remains. Put off the flame.
When it becomes lukewarm, strain the oil through a double layered muslin cloth.
On cooling, add the perfuming oil. Transfer the contents into a narrow mouthed bottle and secure the cap tightly.
Take a small volume of Japakusum hair oil onto your palms. Gently apply it over the scalp and hair. Allow the oil to work for one hour before you wash it off
