Olive and Oats = a great hair conditioner!  Not too thick, not too thin, and I found it really soothing with the combination of Oliv-Esters and Hydrolyzed Oat protein.

I cheated a bit with the method, so although this is not the *correct* way to make an emulsion, I have had no problems with this batch.  For instructions on how to make lotions from scratch, see our Basic Lotion Making Instructions Page if you would prefer to make it “by the book”.

I used a Stubby Shampoo Bottle with a Pump, but this is also suitable for a Malibu Tube. I scented it with Clary Sage Essential Oil and Lime Essential Oil – YUM!

The ingredients are in separate phase groups, in case you are using the traditional method.



  • Measure and heat Distilled Water in Pyrex jug until it reaches 75°C

  • Now add the Conditioning Emulsifier, Oliv-Emulse, Oliv-Esters and give a blast with the stick blender a few times

  • During cool down, give one or two zaps on the stick blender every so often, and then switch to a balloon whisk

  • During this period, add the Hydrolyzed Oats

  • When the conditioner reaches approximately 40°C, add the preservative, and then the Essential Oils or Fragrance

  • Whisk with the small balloon whisk periodically until cold, this keeps the conditioner silky smooth and lustrous

  • Enjoy!
