I love essential oils especially for my hair, they have so many amazing benefits. The essential oils I'm obsessed with right now are lavender oil, tea tree oil, rosemary oil and peppermint oil.
Lavender oil increases the number of hair follicles, which makes for a thicker head of hair. Lavender Oil also decreases hair fall by making the roots stronger.
Other uses: Lavender oil is super calming, can stop or reduce the itching of insect bites, and helps heal burns and wounds.
Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is great for scalp health and getting rid of dandruff. It can also help unclog the hair follicles and get rid of fungal infections.
Other uses: Help fight acne, removes makeup, and soothes skin irritations.
Increases cellular metabolism, which stimulates hair growth and promotes healing. It can slow graying and also treat dandruff.
Other uses: Relieves stress, boosts immune system, and removes bad odor.
Increases the blood flow to the scalp. It opens up pores and has an awesome cooling effect.
Other Uses: Relieves muscle pain, helps with sinuses,and a natural antibacterial.
