October 20, 2017
Essential Oils for Hair Loss

Hair loss is a major concern for a lot of people as they age, with many willing to spend money on expensive treatments to prevent or regrow hair. However, there may be a solution – that smells heavenly – already in your home: essential oils. They have been used for hair health for a long time; in fact, it’s not uncommon to find lavender, chamomile, tea tree oil and many other essential oils in shampoos and conditioners.

Whether you’re worried hair loss or you simply to achieve healthier looking hair, here are some essential oils that will help it grow longer and stronger:


Lavender oil increases hair follicles and promotes faster hair growth. It also can soothe the scalp and heal dry hair. Lavender is known for having balancing, soothing, and stress reducing properties.

To use lavender oil for your hair, mix 8-10 drops of oil with two tablespoons of coconut oil work it into the scalp. Leave it on overnight (lavender induces sleep) and wash in the morning.


Chamomile soothes inflammation and detoxes, which is excellent for the hair follicle and regrowth. Chamomile can relieve an itchy scalp, dermatitis, psoriasis and other skin conditions.

For a chamomile hair rinse: Take two cups of water and two chamomile tea bags. Boil the water and place chamomile bags in it. Wait until the tea has completely cooled and remove tea bags. Wash your hair and use conditioner as you normally do. Rinse your hair with the cooled chamomile tea.


Rosemary is considered one of the best essential oils for hair growth and thickness. It increases circulation and boosts metabolism at the cellular level, which results in growth and healing.

To use rosemary oil on your hair, mix 3-5 drops of rosemary oil with the same amount of olive oil. Massage the mixture into the scalp and allow it to remain for 3-4 hours. Shampoo hair.
