Lavender essential oil is great for conditioning hair, keeps it shiny and controls dandruff. Lavender is also anti-microbial and is known to help prevent fungi and dandruff. This oil is also great for sleep! Bonus! In a recent 2016 study, it was reported that lavender applied to mice stimulated hair to grow. You can read more about that study here.

Rosemary essential oil can stimulate blood circulation which in turn stimulates hair growth. That is why scalp massages are so important it brings good blood flow to your scalp which promotes hair growth.

Cedarwood essential oil is known to stimulate hair follicles to increase circulation to the scalp which in turn can stimulate hair growth.

In the evening lightly spray your scalp and then brush through your hair. Brushing helps distribute the essential oils and it also massages your scalp which helps blood flow. You want good blood flow to your scalp to encourage new hair growth. In the am after washing hair repeat the same process and then style as usual. Not only does it smell amazing it has a nice cooling sensation.


You want to know, right? I was shocked at how amazing my hair felt after using this spray the first time. I am a “gotta wash my hair everyday” girl or my hair is flat and oily. This spray let me go 2 days in between washing. My hair has never felt so soft and clean!
