Nice video. I wanna know where you got that tea kettle from as well please.
Hey ladies, I believe I got it from amazon a few years ago. I couldnt find the exact ones, but found some pretty cute alternatives.
Thank you for the links. Going to check them out right now.
Thank you! Both are really good prices too!
Agreed. I just put the 43 oz kettle in my cart for my next purchase when I'm ready.
Stunna rice milk on my roots/finger detangle & Hair back in 4braids...My lower length is still moisturized from Camille Rose”Honey” & Fenugreek Hair oil that I applied the other day.

Cantu's ACV Rinse
Fermented Rice Water Rinse
Fermented Rice Water L-I
bamboo spritz today.
Curls & Potions Chebe R/W & Mint L-I
Usual ayurvedic grease today.
Made another batch of FRW. Let the rice sit overnight then put it into a spray bottle and into the fridge with nothing else added. I have braids in now so my usage will be slowed down some, and hopefully spraying my scalp yields some positives.
Made some Fenugreek & Black Soap Face Wash/Shampoo
Green Tea with Jasmine Blossoms
African Black Soap
Panthenol, Colloidal Oats & Coconut Milk Powder Xanthum Gum
It turned out really good!
Very frothy, yet creamy once the bubbles settled from me using my immersion blender.
Looks really good Sis.
Please come back and give us a review after you use it.
Will do! I'll start using it on my face tomorrow and my hair on my next wash day.
@ElevatedEnergy Ohhhh, never thought to combine green tea and black soap. I love liquid black soap for us as well as a green tea & castile soap combo I use. May have to try the two together (well minus the castile probably).
Yes, I love black soap....especially for my face!
@water_n_oil Also wanted to let you know of another surprise discovery I made that I was sharing with another member. Fenugreek healed then cleared up my DS's eczema patches within a few hours. It's been a full week now, and the patches are smooth and I haven't caught him scratching.
This looks amazing. I’ve been toying with the idea of switching to black soap for my body - I’ve been looking for a pre-made alternative to dove sensitive skin soap but have found many natural bars irritating or drying :/ what brand of black soap do you use for your base ?
Whoaaa, how are you using it? DD2 scratches like an addict. I need to make a new batch of her shea mix. CeraVe has been helping smooth her skin but the two together work better.
just did a mini haul of some more herbs/powders from HennaSooq. As I mentioned before I plan to start using more infused oils and glosses, full herb pack for henna + indigo coloring only (which I’m thinking bout doing sometime this week maybe Wed)
I want to make two oils, plan to infuse 4 weeks (or minimum of 1 week before I begin to use) - one penetrating for pre-poo or oil rinses - growth, thickness, etc. and one to use after washing for regular scalp massages and sealing with my shea butter that smells wonderful. all powders included below are now in my possession
penetrating, growth oil mix for oil rinses:
1/3 cup each of olive oil + coconut oil + avocado oil
3 tablespoons Fenugreek seeds + 2 tablespoons bhringraj + 2 tablespoons aloe Vera powder + 2 tablespoons henna + 1 tablespoons Amla + 1 tablespoons Brahmi
10 drops of ylang ylang and/or lavender EO
nourishing, moisturizing, good smelling oil mix for scalp massages/sealing on clean hair:
1/2 cup Sunflower or Avocado Oil + 1/4 cup olive oil + 1/4 cup coconut oil
2 tablespoons rose petal + 2 tablespoons aloe vera + 1 tablespoons bhringraj + 1 tablespoons brahmi
10 drops EO: lavender or rose or jasmine
open to suggestions/critics.
It was a pure accident. I was deep conditioning my hair with the Fenugreek conditioner I made and he came over to me reaching for me to pick him up. I still had conditioner on my hands, so I just rubbed it on his legs so i could pick him up. LOL. That night, when I went to change his pamper...the redness was gone and the patch was completely clear. I was like
So then I made a fenugreek tea and sprayed his leg and thighs again and look Sis....
The ends of the straw are where the patches are. (Well were) You can barely see them. Just last week they were bleeding and inflamed. I'm just so happy. I know you know how hurtful it is when they are in pain and there is not mucn you can do. I hope this helps you and any other mommy out there in similar situations. Probably would work well on any dry skin/scalp conditions too.
@ElevatedEnergy omgoodness, will make a batch tonight! Thank you! It's awful when she scratches. There have been times were she dug really deep (thankfully not in a while though). That dc you made looked heavenly btw.
Yall this tea kettle is everything.
I'm making some tea to drink but I'll also be using it for my hair of course. Thanks @NowIAmNappy for the idea/links. You rock!!
Thank you. Do you have Tamanu oil? My research was showing that it was good for eczema too and my deep conditioner has it in there now that I think about it. Try tamanu with the fenugreek spray if you have it, if not then fenugreek alone still would work wonders. Keep me updated!
Sure do. The mix I make for her is just shea, tamnu, and jbco. Will report back once I start using the fenugreek.
