Please do not purchase this listing! Each custom blend has it’s own price based on the amount mixed and the herbs used, and I would be happy to quote that for you. Use this listing for information purposes only, and I’ll create and send you the link to a custom listing once your blend is done!
Please send me a convo if you have any questions or would like advice on your blend!
One of the time-honored methods of improving physical beauty in Scotland and England was to gather morning herbs and apply them to the skin and hair.
“Loveliness within, loveliness without,
let beauty shine, remove all doubt.”
To adapt this idea of your own herbal beauty blend, NightBlooming is happy to offer to mix up precisely what you feel will give you your desired results!
Each custom blend is made entirely from powdered herbs, ground so fine that it’s an earthy dust one might find it in a færie market with other beautifying sundries.
Create your blend from these herbs (if you don’t see what you’re looking for, please convo me):
I usually recommend a base of one or more of the following:
- Senna / Cassia
- Chamomile Flowers
- Henna, Body Art Quality
- Hibiscus Flower
With smaller amounts of any of these:
- Ginger Root
- Yellow Dock

- Marshmallow Root
- Aloe Vera Root
- Stinging Nettle
How much you need will vary with the thickness of your hair generally you’ll need:
- Shoulder Length: 50g
- Bra Strap Length: 100g
- Waist: 300g
- Classic: 400g
Instructions & Storage
Instructions: All of our hair colors come with a full-color instructional brochure that you can also download here.
- In a bowl add the herbal powder. In a separate container heat distilled water until steaming but not boiling and add, mixing until you have a mud the consistency of pancake batter. Add a few drops of Essential Oil if you wish. Please research your EOs carefully.
- Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set someplace warm. Atop a warm electronic, such as a computer tower works well, or under a warm lamp. Mix occasionally, letting sit for at least 2-4 hours, and no more than 6.
- When ready to use, wash hair but do not condition (or condition very lightly). Section towel-dried hair and work the herbal mud into the hair, making sure not to miss spots. Carefully pile hair atop the head and cover with a shower cap or plastic wrap. Leave on for 2-6 hours, the longer you leave it on the deeper the conditioning benefits and the more colored tones that will be imparted.
- Rinse well with water. If you find rinsing difficult, try soaking your hair in the bathtub or a bucket first, or use a lots of a cheap silicone-free conditioner (like VO5) to aid rinsing.
Storage: The powder can be stored in the freezer for well over a year, so long as it is kept in an airtight bag or container. The mud can be kept frozen for 6 months, and may yield a better stain if frozen.
