I love to use rosemary when I cook different dishes. I find the scent to be very calming! I was excited when I found another way to use it, especially in conjunction with promoting hair health! This is a do-it-yourself hair treatment that uses rosemary as the primary ingredient. Rosemary is believed to stimulate hair growth, which makes this an exceptional “recipe” for hair health. It’s from a great book called Natural Beauty at Home.
Rosemary Hair Oil
- 2 Tbsp. dried rosemary
- 1/2 C olive oil
Mix together the rosemary and olive oil. Heat gently in the microwave or on the stove top. Do not boil. You can microwave on high for 2 minutes and it should be just fine. Filter out the solids in the oil by pouring through a funnel lined with a coffee filter. Pour into a clean bottle. Use by massaging a small amount into your scalp after shampooing and before going to bed.
