Lavender Essentail Oil
Lavender oil is considered the most versatile of all essential oils because of its many uses. In regards to hair, it has particular benefits for people with a mix of dry and oily scalp issues, as it balances sebum production. Other benefits for hair and scalp include:
- moisturizes scalp and hair strands
- reduces shedding
- enhances blood circulation to the scalp
- increases hair growth
- relieves dry scalp
- reduces fungi, bacteria, and other microbes
- soothes the scalp
- cleanses the scalp
- balances sebum
Lavender oil has a fresh, floral, herbaceous scent. It blends well with other aromas particularly bay, bergamot, chamomile, citronella, clary sage, geranium, jasmine, lemon, mandarin, orange, palmarosa, patchouli, pine, thyme, rosemary, rosewood and ylang-ylang.
Note: Do not use without diluting as indicated in the directions.
Because of the volatile nature of essential oils, they should always be mixed with a carrier oil such as jojoba, castor, olive, grapeseed, sesame, coconut, or sweet almond to name a few. They should be mixed at a ratio of approximately 1 - 2% dilution, which equates to 5-10 drops per 30 ml. Essential oils can be mixed with your favourite carrier oil, or conditioner, shampoo, or styling product to take advantage of their numerous benefits.
Caution: Do not apply directly to the skin. If pregnant, suffering from medical conditions or taking any medication, consult a Health Care Professional. Keep in a cool place away from light and heat. Keep out of reach of children. May irritate skin. Avoid contact with eyes.
