Rosemary Essential Oil & Hair Growth
We’ve all come across a hair issue at least once or twice before but people who experience hair loss may run into these issues more often. This is widely due to the fact that there are many factors that contribute to hair loss. Age, hormonal changes, heredity, or health issues such as infections all can cause hair loss. Luckily there is a natural solution which can help alleviate this issue.
Studies have shown rosemary can reverse the signs of some hair loss problems, this is true for both men and women. In a clinical trial using a well-known hair loss medication vs natural rosemary oil both contributed to hair growth over a 6-month time period. Not only does rosemary oil promote hair growth but it also fights the growth of certain pathogens such as bacteria and fungi. In fact, during the study scientist found those who used the rosemary oil showed a significant reduction in scalp itch.
So how does the herb do this? Easy, when rosemary is in its essential oil form it can:
· Improve circulation
· Exhibits anti-inflammatory properties
· Contribute to nerve growth
· Stimulate follicles
A number of studies done on essential oil and hair loss ranging from alopecia to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) have been proven to show hair growth over longer periods of time.
If you would like to experience the benefits of rosemary essential oil, there are a number of ways you can do so: add a bit of essential oil to your favorite shampoo or conditioner or add a couple drops of essential oil to a carrier oil (our favorite unrefined coconut oil here).
If you aren’t familiar with essential oils, using other forms of treatment, or pregnant, please consult your physician before moving forward.
