Hair Loss Essential Oil Blend
The following is NOT MEDICAL ADVICE and is intended for educational purposes only - to illustrate the science behind essential oils, how they might be applied in the real world, and to offer a foundation from which to speak to your doctor.
Consult your primary healthcare provider before using essential oils.
Essential oils are concentrated plant extracts and SHOULD NOT be handled by anyone unaware of the RISKS and DANGERS they pose.
Who doesn’t wish for a thick, healthy head of hair? Whether your locks are already in peak health or starting to show signs of your age, this blend of essential oils is intended to help your hair look thick and full, and in some cases, may promote hair growth.
Recommended Essential Oils:
Lavandula angustifolia (True Lavender) - 2 drops
Thymus vulgaris (thyme) - 2 drops
Rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) - 2 drops
Cedrus atlantica (Atlas cedarwood) - 2 drops
Mentha piperita (peppermint) - 2 drops
Ocimum basilicum (basil) - 2 drops
Recommended Carrier Oil:
Olea europea (olive oil) - 1 American Tablespoon
In a small, clean mixing glass, combine essential oils and carrier oil and store in a dark amber glass bottle with drip stop lid or appropriate substitution. If necessary, a small funnel may be used to transfer the final blend from the mixing glass to the amber bottle. This formula would slightly overfill a 15 mL bottle.
During normal bathing routine, 3 to 5 drops of this formula may be massaged, along with the shampoo or conditioner of choice, into the hair / scalp, for 1.5 to 2 minutes, before being rinsed out like normal. Switching to a more gentle shampoo or conditioner would also be recommended.
This would be done no more than once per day for 30 days, before COMPLETELY discontinuing use for at least 10 days. This cycle could be continued for as long as your doctor deemed it safe.
Inclusion of Lavandula angustifolia (True Lavender), Thymus vulgaris (thyme), Rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary), and Cedrus atlantica (Atlas cedarwood) in this formula is supported by research conducted by Hay, Jamieson, and Ormerod, published in the Archives of Dermatology, a publication of the American Medical Association. This study shows “statistically significant” improvement in hair thickness and coverage after massaging these essential oils into the scalp every night for several months (Source #1).
Inclusion of Mentha piperita (peppermint) in this formula is supported by research conducted by Oh, Park, and Kim, published in Toxicological Research, a journal published by the Korean Society of Toxicology. This study shows improvement in hair follicle number and depth in animal testing (Source #2).
Inclusion of Ocimum basilicum (basil) in this formula is supported by research conducted by Belser Gisi, Schmid, and Zulli, funded by the Mibelle Group — a Swiss manufacturer of cosmetics and personal care products, and found on the website for the Swiss Society of Cosmetic Chemists. This study shows improved proliferation in the cells that are responsible for hair growth (Source #3).
Inclusion of Olea europea (olive oil) as the carrier oil in this formula is supported by the oil’s hair healthy reputation within the beauty and natural health industries (Sources #4, 5, 6).
All formula proportions would assume use by a physically mature and healthy adult and are NOT recommended for children.
