    Hi Brenda, would it be ook to mix black, green, peppermint, and hibiscus tea all together as a tea rinse? Or will it cancel some of the properties out? Thanks again!

    • Brenda Barrett said:

      Hi Natoya,
      I wouldn’t mix all of them together. Use one at a time. The peppermint can work well with any of the others. Keep it simple.
