Zero Waste Flaxseed Hair Gel (adapted from Hayley E. Frerichs)
2 Tbs. Flaxseeds
1 Cup Water
2-4 drops of Essential Oil such as Rosemary or Peppermint (optional)
Bring water to a boil. Add flaxseeds and stir constantly to prevent sticking.
After 3-5 minutes, strain the gel from the flaxseeds into a bowl with a fine-mesh strainer. (Strain quickly so it's still liquidy and goes through the fine mesh. Use a spoon to make it go through if needed.)
Strain again into your storage container and mix in your essential oil drops if using.
Store in fridge to extend the shelf life.
