In recent years, it has been claimed that rosemary essential oil is beneficial for hair growth. Some say it even prevents hair loss, noting that Mediterranean cultures have used rosemary in shampoos for hundreds of years as supporting evidence.

What is rosemary oil?

Rosemary oil is an essential oil derived from the leaves of the rosemary plant (Rosmarinus officinalis). Rosemary oil, derived from the herb Rosmarinus officinalis, offers several benefits including anti-inflammatory properties, promotion of nerve growth, and enhanced blood circulation. Rosemary oil has been studied for its potential to promote nerve growth and enhance neural function. It contains certain bioactive compounds, including rosmarinic acid and caffeic acid, which have neuroprotective properties.

Like peppermint essential oil (which is also used for hair growth), rosemary essential oil promotes blood circulation. Thus, it prevents the hair follicles from starving of blood supply, dying and causing hair loss. In addition to stimulating hair growth, rosemary essential oil can also prevent premature graying and dandruff. It can also help dry or itchy scalp.

How to use rosemary oil?

1. Scalp Massage: Mix approximately 5 drops of rosemary essential oil with a teaspoon of carrier oil, such as jojoba oil or coconut oil. After bathing or showering, massage this mixture evenly into your scalp. You can choose to rinse it out afterward, but it’s recommended to leave the oil on your scalp for at least 5 to 10 minutes before rinsing.

2. Shampoo Boost: Add rosemary essential oil to your regular shampoo, conditioner, lotion, or cream. Start with about 5 drops per ounce of the product. Mix well and use the product as you normally would. You can also add 2 to 3 drops directly to the palm of your hand when dispensing a dollop of hair product before use.

3. Homemade Shampoo: Explore various online recipes for a homemade shampoo base that suits your needs. Typically, these recipes include ingredients like baking soda, coconut oil, essential oils, and other optional oils. Incorporate rosemary essential oil into your homemade shampoo for its hair health and beauty benefits.

Reminder: Be careful not to apply too much on the scalp. Rosemary essential oil is known to irritate the skin. It may cause discomfort but is not a health hazard. To avoid skin irritation, dilute with a carrier oil or other product before use.
