How To Use Essential
Oils for Hair Loss:
Add 2 drops of the essential oil either to the rinse water or to a good vegetable oil. Massage it well into the scalp. Wrap the hair in plastic wrap; place a warm towel around it. Leave it for 2 to 3 hours, or overnight. Shampoo the hair as usual, using a mild shampoo (avoid medicated shampoo), so that you do not damage the sebum balance.
Essential Oils for
Stimulating Circulation and Improving the Hair Health
A blend of bay and lavender essential oils stimulates the scalp and helps hair health. Add six drops of each oil to four ounces of
a warm carrier oil such as almond, soybean or sesame oil. Massage the mixture into the scalp and allow it to absorb for 20 minutes.
Add three drops of bay essential oil to the shampoo you regularly uses
and wash the hair with this shampoo.

Dermatologists at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary in Scotland gave 43 people, suffering from a rare autoimmune disorder that causes patchy hair loss,
the essential oil blend described above and asked them to rub it into their scalps daily. After seven months, 19 regrew as much as half of their hair, while a few regrew almost all of their hair back.
The study was reported in the November/December 1999 issue of Health
magazine. The researchers speculated that this remedy may also help other types of balding, including midlife thinning for men.
Oils of arnica, lavender, rosemary or calamus stimulate healthy hair growth. Rub into hair before washing.
Avoid rosemary oil if you have high blood pressure. Keep lemon and grapefruit doses low if you have sensitive skin, as they may be slightly irritating.
