Rosemary oil, loaded with antioxidants, is known to treat hair loss effectively. This essential oil with a strong minty aroma helps in stimulating flow of blood and making hair strong. Scalp massage helps to stimulate and rejuvenate hair follicles by increasing the blood circulation. For a daily massage to stimulate new growth, add 3-4 drops of rosemary oil to one tablespoon of carrier oil such as jojoba oil.
Oily hair is greasy and tends to be lifeless and dull. Choose from an array of essential oils like lemongrass, peppermint, rosemary, cedarwood, cypress, eucalyptus and basil. A scalp massage using one or a blend of these essential oils helps in the regulation of the production of oil by sebaceous glands. Sesame or jojoba oil can be used as the carrier oil.
** Caution: * Consult your physician or aroma therapist before using any essential oils
