  • As always, start with clean, sterilized tools – I submerge everything in boiling water before use.
  • In your glass bottle, combine the vodka, peppermint hydrosol (or mint water) and vegetable glycerin. Shake gently to combine.
  • Add the Poly Suga Mulse and swirl gently to combine before adding your peppermint and rosemary essential oils.
  • Add the apple cider vinegar if desired, and then add the leucidal liquid before swirly gently once more.


You should tweak the amount of Poly Suga Mulse D9 to suit your particular hair type.
For dry hair, use 1/2 tsp of Poly Suga Mulse D9.
For slightly oily hair, use 3/4 tsp of Poly Suga Mulse D9.
For oily hair, use 1 tsp of Poly Suga Mulse D9.
The preservative is not optional! Water-containing products are a breeding ground for mold, fungus, and bacteria. Unpreserved DIYs are not only unsanitary, but they’re dangerous, too. If you don't have leucidal liquid on hand, please replace it with a water-soluble preservative of your choice.
