Perhaps one of the most uplifting and healthful ways you can use essential oils is in a daily hair treatment.
Due to these sweetly scented essential oils, your most dour of moods will be lifted. Most of all, your hair will get the nourishment it needs to stay healthy.*
So, what better way to treat yourself than to treat your locks well, and use pleasantly scented essential oils to boot?
Lately, the No-Poo Method has gained a great deal of exposure. If you are a seasoned user of this method, you may already know that it isn’t exactly easy to simply stop using shampoo. It seems like finding the right ratios of baking soda and water can be tricky.
Yet, “No-Poo” is still the perfect way to get away from the chemicals hiding in most typical shampoos, conditioners and various hair products. And DIY hair cleansing with essential oils is just another of the many ways you can incorporate healthful essential oils into your normal daily routines.
Therefore, if you’ve mastered the first “shampoo” step, it’s time to move on to conditioning. A hair rinse is another great way to condition without exposing your beautiful locks to the harmful chemicals inherent within most big-brands.**
Most noteworthy is that in the second step of this method, you use apple cider vinegar in combination with water and essential oils to remove residue buildup.
First of all, dilute 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar in 2 cups of water. And use up to 10 drops of pure essential oils. We suggest using either one, or a combination of the following: juniper berry, rosemary, geranium, clary sage, lavender, lemon, patchouli, or sandalwood.
After using shampoo, or a baking-soda and water combo, rinse through wet hair. Add honey or lemon to this blend for a nice touch. Especially relevant is to use this rinse only once or twice a week, as vinegar can be drying.
