This easy DIY formula encourages hair growth by stimulating circulation to the scalp. It also balances sebum production and leaves your hair smelling delicious. The blend can also be applied to the entire head of hair for deep conditioning purposes.
- 40 drops rosemary essential oil
- 20 drops basil essential oil
- 20 drops lavender essential oil
- 15 drops lemongrass essential oil
- 10 drops peppermint essential oil
- 1/2 cup jojoba oil
- pinch of cayenne pepper
In a storage bottle place the jojoba oil. Then add all the essential oils and shake the formula vigorously. Let the blend sit for 24 hours so that the oils can synergize. Keep the formula in a cool dark place to maintain freshness. No refrigeration required.
Apply to scalp and massage for 5-7 minutes. For conditioning purposes apply to hair ends as well. Wrap your hair in a plastic wrap or cover with a shower cap and then wrap again with a warm towel. Let the treatment sit on your hair for 40 minutes. Rinse and condition hair if desired.
Recommended use: 2 times per week
