I BELIEVE in the use of essential oils in hair care, skin care and various natural household uses. The following concoction should last 4-6 months even with daily use.
Small dark glass jar (the best for preserving oils and preventing spoilage)
Recipe: Essential & Carrier Base Oils for Thinning HairEssential oil mixtures require a carrier base oil. The more essential oil you add the more carrier oil will be required to dilute it in order to avoid irritation. To learn more about what essential oils and carrier oils are click here.
7 Drops of Rosemary 100% Pure Essential Oil
5 Drops of Clary Sage 100% Pure Essential Oil
2 oz (1/4 cup) of Jamaican Black Castor Oil Carrier Base Oil
Please note that thinning hair can be indicative of serious health problems. I have had a through blood work up by my holistic primary care physician and have spoken to more than one doctor about my thinning hair. They believe it is likely stress from my insanely busy life. Please do not use if nursing or pregnant. Please do a skin spot test before using to insure you are not allergic. Just because this is natural does not mean it will not interact poorly with your skin. Those with high blood pressure should note that rosemary is known to raise your blood pressure so consider an alternate oil like bergamot.
