15 Dec Organic Essential Oil Recipes For Dry Scalp And Dandruff
Dry scalp can be irritating for sure, and more than that, it can lead to dandruff. Both dry scalp and dandruff are quite common issues, and fortunately, you don’t have to get some special type of chemical shampoo to deal with those issues. You can in fact use organic remedies, and in this article, I’m gong to give you a recipe of organic essential oils for dry scalp and throw in a separate organic recipe for dandruff to boot.
How To Do A Dry Scalp Treatment ?
When it comes to a recipe for dry scalp, what oils do you think would be included? Perhaps you are going to get introduced to some essential oils you don’t yet use. Or maybe you already have these oils like organic coconut oil and use them, but you didn’t know that they could help you with dry scalp.
For the dry scalp recipe, you need the following organic oils: cedarwood, lavender and patchouli. There is a 4th oil, but you have a choice. You can either include geranium oil or sandalwood oil. Perhaps you could try out both oils at different times, as you might also want to treat your scalp with this recipe to prevent dry scalp in the future.
You also need to know how much of each oil to use. You need 6 drops of cedarwood oil, and you need 4 drops of lavender oil. You need 2 drops of patchouli oil, and as for the geranium or sandalwood oil, you also need 2 drops. That might not seem like a lot, but remember, essential oils have to be diluted when you use them.
How to Get Rid of Dandruff?
Now let’s get to that dandruff recipe. You need lemon oil and lavender oil, and you need rosemary and peppermint oil. You need to have 5 drops of the lemon oil, and you need 2 drops of lavender oil. As for the rosemary oil, you need one drop, and you need 2 drops of the peppermint oil.
There are different ways that you can dilute these recipes properly for application purposes. One simple way is to dilute all oils in the recipes 50:50 with a carrier oil. There is a dilution process with coconut oil, too. It depends on how you want to do it, but now you have two great recipes to get the job done. Some of the dilution steps call for rinsing after a few minutes of massaging the oils into your scalp, and there is a proper way to dilute the recipes if you want to leave them in overnight.
