Lavender Essential Oil to the Rescue for Dandruff

Posted on: January 31st, 2013 by Admin No Comments

Lavender is a versatile essential oil which is an excellent home remedy for visible flakes on the scalp.

Application:  Wet your hair with water and towel dry.  Mix 15 drops of lavender essential oil with two tablespoons of a carrier oil (almond oil or olive oil).  Warm this mixture gently and massage it onto your scalp.  Leave it in for approximately one to two hours and follow through by washing with your normal shampoo.  If you are an essential oil user, you can maximise this treatment by adding a few drops of tea tree oil into your shampoo bottle.  Tea tree oil has been scientifically proven to reduce dandruff.
