If you’ve been following the series of posts on homemade shampoo’s you know I’ve been experimenting… and so many of you wrote in to suggest using the yucca root. I found this excellent video on YoutTube by Tam from Bushcraft On Fire where she shows how to harvest and use the root. Plus she talks about feminine hygiene in a wilderness – or after collapse – situation. I am going to dig up a yucca and try this out. I’ll post my results and see how well it worked out in reality. If you’ve got a yucca near you, why not try this out also and send us in your results? We would love to hear from you!
My philosophy is – why wait for collapse? If we find a great shampoo that works well and is easy to make and use – heck, I would much rather skip that whole section of the store. Not to mention keep those commercial shampoo chemicals off my scalp.
And the best thing is, making small change now will make the whole transition easier.
