Rub this sweet-smelling, anti-dandruff oil into the scalp as a pre-conditioning treatment before washing hair. Its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties will help soothe and tone a dry, irritated scalp. Use 3 times a week for 2 weeks to blitz dandruff, then once a week to keep it at bay.
6 tbsp fresh rosemary
3 tbsp fresh thyme
3 tbsp fresh lavender
250ml coconut oil
20 drops peppermint essential oil
1 Wash and chop all the plants and place in a glass heatproof bowl. Stir in the coconut oil. Cover the bowl with a lid and place over a pan of boiling water to create a double boiler. Heat on a medium to low flame for 1 hour. Leave to cool.
2 When cool, stir in the peppermint essential oil. Strain and pour the hair oil into bottles.
USE Apply 3 teaspoons to hair and massage well into the scalp. Wrap hair in a towel and leave for 30 minutes. Then wash hair a couple of times with normal shampoo to get the oil out completely. Use 3 times a week for the first 2 weeks, and once a week as a preventative measure.
CAUTION: Avoid the eye area, and if you feel any discomfort, wash off immediately.
STORAGE Will keep for up to 1 year in a cool dark place.
