For goddess hair

This is a wee bit messy!

I know you would not think it, but through the stress and strains of today's complex world, stress is rife. Through that stress, you can lose hair. I don't mean baldy men, (thats their problem!) Im talking about hair loss with women. This some what taboo subject, ( a lot of people do not realise that it happens) is in fact common, and heaps even more stress on hair folicles. (trust me, i know!) So, not for wanting to tear any more hair out, i looked for answers. I believe this nifty wee potion if used on a regular basis can help strengthen the hair and improve growth. Here comes the science! Cedarwood, clary sage, rosemary and ylang ylang essential oils all have properties that help our hair remain strong and in our scalps! If you look at a lot major selling beauty products advertised, you will surely find essential oils stuffed in there or advertising that they do anyway. Im certainly not saying these do not work, but i just find natures approach works better in my hair than putting all chemicals in it.

Cedarwood: helps renew hair growth

Clary sage: Improves poor hair growth

Rosemary: renews hair growth

ylang ylang: aids hair growth

Note: You must never put aromatherapy oils on neat to any part of the skin, hair or body. This is strong stuff people! What to do, i hear you cry, well cry no longer ,as you have to mix the oils in a carrier oil. Jaboba oil is best for hair, but im finding it frightfully expensive, so i just use what else is good for hair which is coconut oil. Cheap and cheerful.


3 drops of clary sage

3 drops of cedarwood

2 drops of rosemary

3 drops of ylang ylang

Put these oils in 10 drops of coconut oil, or do what i do and just throw in a dallop. What ever works best for you, just don't make too much that you waste it, as it will not keep in open air. If you do wish to make a bottle, make sure it is a dark glassed one, as light effects the ingredients and increase the amount of the potion. Mix together and slap it all over your hair.Thats the messy part. Then get a warm towel and wrap it on your head, take a bath and chill out! The heat helps the oils do the magic! Wash hair throughly, and i try to do this weekly if possible!

Depression and extreme stress are identified as the common causes of hair loss and altogether inadequate hair care, tumors, diseases like seborrheic dermatitis and hypothyroidism, malnutrition et al are certain other factors that contribute to hair loss in both men and women.
