So what is all the fuss about?

Recent studies show that rosemary essential oil, (used with a carrier oil so as not to irritate sensitive skin) when massaged into the scalp can stimulate hair follicles, creating healthier hair and in some cases, stimulate hair growth. This is not to say it’s an answer for baldness, but there has been evidence of growth improvement over time. One study in 2022, according to an article written by Lauren Ironmonger, in the Sydney Morning Herald recently, found that oiling was as effective for hair growth after 6 weeks as minoxidil, a hair growth medication. That’s naturally impressive!! Having said that, it is suggested that results for shiny locks can take months.


How to use rosemary oil for hair growth?

The general suggestion is to part your hair down the middle and apply a few drops of rosemary oil on your scalp. Massage gently into the scalp and repeat on the left and right side parting of hair. Ideally, leave it in for an hour or so before washing it out with a mild shampoo. For general hair health, rosemary oil can also be combed through hair. A few drops in your palm, rub your palms together to spread it, and run your fingers/hands through your hair. For both methods, a few drops go a long way, so less is more.


Why is it so good for your hair?

It can provide deep hydration and conditioning, chemical free, for your hair and scalp. It can penetrate in fine cracks in the scalp, reducing flaking and dryness. Rosemary essential oil has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, therefore reducing the potential for bacteria, which is often the cause for itchiness. With this in mind, it’s wonderful to know this can be reached through a 100% plant based product.
