Aromatherapy For Hair

Aromatherapy for the scalp and hair is a fantastic and therapeutic treatment for your hair. I thought I would give you some quick ideas on what essential oils to use, how to mix and what to do! First thing to always remember is that the essential oil should NOT come in direct contact with your scalp or skin – hence why I am giving you mixes (recipes)! Also remember to use these as a rinse and do not leave in the hair.

These are great for relieving flaking, increasing blood flow, calming, soothing and even encouraging new hair growth. And they are a great little treat and stress killer!

You will need a “base oil” or product to mix with your essential oils. Try: Sweet Almond Oil or Grapeseed Oil.

You will also need something to store the mixture in. Try: Tottle Bath Kit.

Be sure to also have a measuring implement that shows ounces or (100ml) and measuring spoons.
