Essential Oils for Dry Flaky Scalp

by Dana
(Philadelphia, PA)


What's a good combination of essential oils for dry flaky scalp? I don't want it to smell like medicine. Tea Tree oil is good but it doesn't smell so good.

Could I use Rosemary and Lavender, or Tea Tree and Lavender? I also want it to stimulate hair growth. I have Bergamot and Sweet Orange Essential oils also.


Rosemary, Lavender and Tea Tree are all excellent for hair health. You might want to try this Anti-Dandruff Scalp Treatment:

1/2 cup (125ml) Witch Hazel
20 drops Tea Tree essential oil
20 drops Lavender essential oil
10 drops Orange essential oil
10 drops Rosemary essential oil

Combine the ingredients in a 4oz (125ml) dark glass or PET plastic bottle.

To use, massage about a tablespoon into your scalp every night before you go to bed. Keep doing this until the dandruff clears up.

My eBook The 5 Oils Toolkit also has some good dandruff recipes in it using just a few essential oils.

You can also learn how to make your own hair growth treatments.

I hope that helps - good luck!
