Rosemary is great for hair.
Rosemary had been known to invigorate the scalp, stimulate hair growth, and soothe itchy skin.
This makes it a great addition to hair and scalp treatments.
One easy way to utilize the benefits of rosemary is to make rosemary oil.
Rosemary oil is very simple to prepare. I'll give you two methods. Both are easy, one takes a little more patience.
How to Make Rosemary Hair Oil
In a clean jar add 25 drops of rosemary essential oil to 1 ounce of olive oil. Cap tightly and shake to combine.
This oil can be used as a a hot oil treatment. Use about 1 teaspoon for mid-length hair and 2 teaspoons for long hair.
Massage into scalp and down through the ends of the hair. Cover head with a towel or plastic bag and let sit for an hour or so. This will give your hair a nice conditioning treatment.
Fill a clean jar with dried rosemary (smash the rosemary a little before adding to the jar in order to let the oils more easily escape).
Pour enough oil into the jar to cover the rosemary and add a little extra.
If you'd like more specific measurements:
Use approx. 1 ounce of herb to 4 ounces of oil.
Cap tightly and leave the jar in a sunny window for 2-4 weeks.
Strain out the herbs and pour into a dark, glass bottle or jar.
Use oil as described above. Or follow these directions for using as a hot oil treatment.
Creating your own rosemary hair oil is easy and fun. Packaged in a pretty bottle, it would also make a lovely gift.
