Aromatherapy Treatment for Natural Hair

I am big on aromatherapy and I know that essential oils and certain fragrances have therapeutic effect on the body and the hair!

Here is a formula for an aromatherapy scalp massage treatment I plan to try.

  1. Lavender oil
  2. Eucalyptus oil
  3. Peppermint
  4. Jojoba oil
  5. Coconut oil pills/capsules
  6. Rosemary oil
  7. Cedarwood oil
  8. Deep conditioning treatment.

Or, in lieu of individual vials of oil, you can purchase an essential oil blend.


Add two to three drops of each oil to 2 cups of the conditioning treatment in a glass bowl and mix.

Heat the mixture in the microwave or by dipping the glass bowl in a pot of boiled water for 5 minutes.

Take a couple of scoops and massage into the root by hand. Leave in hair for 15 minutes.

For maximum impact, sit under a hair dryer while the mixture is in the hair.

Rinse and then put a few drops of each in a cup of hot water and do a final rinse and scalp massage.

The hair should feel tingly and the scents should invigorate your senses and open up your sinus passages and leaving you feeling great.
