Rosemary, Cedarwood & Sage Hair Thickener

Our thanks to Dr. Axe for this recipe. I wanted to make sure you had something to try for your hair along with my Hair Loss post.

According to Dr. Axe, the following explains how this treatment can help.

  • Rosemary is one of the best oils for enhancing hair growth, which thickens the hair. Rosemary oil is believed to increase cellular metabolism that stimulates hair growth.
  • Cedarwood essential oil can help stimulate the hair follicles by increasing circulation to the scalp. This can contribute to hair growth and slow hair loss! Cedarwood can help treat thinning hair and various types of alopecia, too.
  • Sage essential oil can help balance scalp oils. Sage has some similar properties as rosemary essential oil due its ability to increase cellular metabolism. As well, it mimics some benefits found in sage, which provides hormone balancing properties.

Used with the carrier oils Jojoba and Grapeseed as indicated in the recipe, these oils can help treat the hair loss problems you may be facing.
