Let me first tell you what is in it and why it is so nourishing for your hair. Like most things I make, I use essential oils in this recipe because they are beneficial in so many ways..
Rosemary Essential Oil
According to healthine.com, “rosemary essential oil strengthens circulation. As a result, it could prevent hair follicles from being starved of blood supply, dying off, and leading to hair loss. Beyond stimulating har growth, rosemary essential oil is used to prevent premature graying and dandruff. It may also help dry or itchy scalp.”
Lavender Essential Oil
Lavender is a floral essential oil that can be soothing to damaged hair and skin. It cleanses and soothes minor skin irritations. There have also been studies, like this one, that point to Lavender essential oil promoting hair growth.
Cedarwood Essential Oil
Cedarwood helps maintain the appearance of youthful skin and healthy-looking hair. According to pub med cedarwood may promote hair growth.
Geranium Essential Oil
This fragrant oil is cleansing and helps promote radiant, healthy looking hair.
This is a beautiful combination of essential oils that supports natural hair growth and promotes healthy looking hair as well.
When applied to hair, these oils coat the hair strands and make it easier to brush. If you are looking for hair growth I suggest massaging this into your scalp as well. This is an amazing easy DIY Mermaid Hair Spritz and DIY Hair Detangler that leaves your hair looking amazing!

As with all things essential oils, please research and use real essential oils that are pure and of the best quality. You want to pay attention to where the essential oil comes from, where the farm is located, the way the crops are handled, if there are pesticides used on the crops, how the essential oils are distilled, and the testing that is behind them. I always recommend Young Living Essential Oils and ONLY Young Living Essential oils because I know how important it is to use a good quality essential oil, that was grown with no pesticides, harvested during the right time of the season distilled at the right temperature and length of time and of course have no fillers, synthetic fragrances or additives. You can read more about the Young Living Seed to Seal Guarantee here. No other company offers this or anything close to it.
Still need your essential oils?
I do have to say one more time, I ONLY USE YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS. They are 100% pure. No pesticides touch the crops. There are no additives in the oils. No watering down. Distilled at the right time of year for the specific plant. They are distilled at the right temperature, for the right amount of time (no short cuts here). To read more about Young Living and their seed to seal guarantee go to www.seedtoseal.com and you will see why I only use them. PLUS, I cannot speak to the quality of other brands and can’t guarantee they will be any good at all.
