Essential Oils for Hair

Before using any essential oil, be sure to do sufficient research as to their use and application.  This page is to serve as a reference guide but not a bible to their usage.  A skin test should be done prior to any usage.  Pregnant women should not utilize essential oils since their properties are so concentrated.  I have placed an asterix (*) next to any oils which require further research. Essential oils are only for external application and are most beneficial when applied with a warming massage.  Again, research is the key to safety.
