Peppermint Shampoo


As a child I would run outside whenever it snowed and try to catch snowflakes on my tongue! And for some reason, every year I expected them to taste like peppermint. 🙂 Even though they never did, I still enjoy that scent and associate it with the holidays. We love the invigorating feeling of peppermint and thought we’d add it to a shampoo this holiday season – but really this is a great shampoo year round!

A note from “This shampoo base is designed to deep clean your hair while moisturizing. This shampoo base is made with ingredients that nourish your hair giving you the healthy, shiny, smooth-looking hair you desire. This base is simple to use, just cold mix your fragrance and other ingredients and create your own line of shampoo products.”

What You’ll Need:

8 oz Stephenson Organic Shampoo Base
1 mL Peppermint 2nd Essential Oil
(1) 8 oz Clear Bottle w/ Pump
Easy Pour Container

In an easy pour container weigh out 8 oz of the stephenson organic shampoo base and 1 mL of peppermint 2nd essential oil.

1 2

Once the peppermint essential oil has been mixed in, pour the shampoo into an 8 oz clear bottle.


You can then follow up with the stephenson organic conditioner base and add your own essential oil or fragrance oil.

    I think I found a small typo. In the recipe for the Blonde Shampoo bar, the ingredients list colorants as 1/2 tsp purple clay & 1/2 tsp purple clay. The directions are correct, just the ingredients are wrong. I just thought you might like to know that.
