Rosemary essential oil helps to stimulate the hair follicles which can make your hair grow longer and stronger. It is also believed that rosemary oil slows down premature loss of hair and even graying of hair. If you rinse brown hair with rosemary oil, it will keep it looking a bit darker. Rosemary essential oil is also great for relieving dry and flaky scalps.
To make a wonderful conditioner that will make your hair healthy, put a few drops of rosemary oil in the palm of your hand, rub your hands together and rub it through your towel-dried hair. You can also put a bit of the oil on your comb or brush and use them to comb your hair. Then dry it and style it and look ravishingly radiant!
A simple, healthful water infusion can be made by putting several handfuls of rosemary into a water-filled pot, bring the water to a boil, and gently simmering for about 10 – 15 minutes. Let the mixture cool, strain it into a clean container, and pour throughout your hair just after shampooing. The aroma of rosemary is delicious in your hair!
Rosemary combined with raw organic Apple Cider Vinegar (see previous post – V is for Vinegar – ACV for Natural Health) is a great way to treat dull, dry and droopy hair that tends to fall out. To prepare the mixture, fill a clean jar or bottle with dried or fresh rosemary sprigs and pour raw, unheated apple cider vinegar over the herbs, completely covering the herbs. Seal the jar and let the mixture infuse for at least two weeks in a dark place, shaking the jar occasionally. Use once a week as a hair rinse, mixing several tablespoons of the rosemary vinegar with lukewarm water and pouring the mixture onto your scalp and hair. This rosemary rinse is so remarkable, you will begin to notice the difference in just a week or two – and you will start to have Radiant Rosemary tResses!
