Hair aromatherapy:

Hair aromatherapy will help your hair become strong and healthy for a long period of time. However, you will need to spend some time and money to prepare aromatherapy products for hair. These products are good for preventing loss of hair and for promoting hair growth. There are some hair aromatherapy recipes that will work wonders on your hair.

  • You can blend essential oils of thyme (two drops), Atlas cedar wood (two drops), rosemary (three drops), lavender (three drops) in a small glass jar and mix it well with half a teaspoon of jojoba oil and four teaspoons of grape seed oil. Massage this mixture into your scalp at night and wrap a hot towel over your head. Wash your hair with a mild shampoo in the morning. This aromatherapy treatment for hair will enhance hair growth.
  • For stimulating circulation and enriching your hair, blend bay and lavender oil, six drops of each mixed with four ounces of any carrier oil like almond, sesame, or soybean oil. Massage well onto your scalp and allow it to be absorbed for about 20 minutes. Use this regularly to improve the health of your hair.
  • To relax and condition hair, blend two drops each of lavender, sandalwood, and chamomile, one drop of jasmine absolute and half an ounce of jojoba or almond oil. To avoid dandruff and a scaly scalp, use a blend of two drops each of tea tree, ylang ylang, rosemary, and lavender and half an ounce of a base oil such as almond or jojoba.
  • Aromatherapy for hair loss. One of the best treatments for hair loss is to blend two drops of any of the following essential oils with a teaspoon of vegetable oil. The essential oils that you can use are cedar wood, bay, jojoba oil, grape fruit, lemon, lavender, roman chamomile, and rosemary. Massage the blend onto your scalp, wrap a hot towel around your head and wash your hair after no less than two hours. It is better to keep these oils on overnight.  For patchy hair the essential oil blend needs to be used daily to obtain the desired results. This may help in midlife thinning of hair and balding too.
  • For soothing and refreshing the scalp you may blend two drops each of clary sage, tea tree, and lavender or jasmine absolute with half an ounce of jojoba or sweet almond oil. The oils of lavender, arnica, rosemary, or calamus will stimulate healthy hair growth.
  • Use lemon and grapefruit essential oil in small amounts as they can cause irritation. Apply two drops of your favorite essential oils to the bristles of your hairbrush and brush your hair well to make the fantastic aroma of the oil linger in your hair.
