One of the best thing about mixing and blending your own oils/butters is that you know exactly what is going in, you are able to play around with recipes and measurements and also trying out new oils/butters. It is just so much fun learning and reading about natural oils/butters.
I recently came across this recipe online at http://www.naturalbeautyworkshop.com while I was looking for the best oils for dry, itchy and scaly scalp. I had been dealing with a really terrible scalp issue as in itching and stuff, infact my scalp was getting a little tender because I could not keep my fingers out of my hair. I needed and wanted something intense that I can feel on my scalp (Tingling) and this blend did exactly that. The original recipe used Arnica CO2 extract and babassu oil, since I did not have the two, I replace the arnica with rosemary essential oil and the babassu with coconut oil.
THE ORIGINAL RECIPE
Coconut Oil 60ml
Babassu Oil 45ml
Argan Oil 15ml
Black Jamaican Castor Oil 7.5ml
Anica CO2 Extract 2.5ml
Organic Pure Coconut Oil 120ml – It is one the oils that can actually penetrate deep into the hair follicles. It adds lustre, shine and softens the hair. It also prevents breakage.
Argan Oil 15ml – It has been proven to make hair soft and promotes shine, it is an amazing hair conditioner, a good styling agent because of its ability to tame frizz.
Black Jamaican Castor Oil 7.5ml – It is rich in omega-9 fatty acids that moisturises the scalp and prevents hair from drying. Regular use promotes hair growth.
Rosemary Essential Oil 2.5ml – It is packed full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. It promotes hair growth and helps with dandruff.
I doubled the coconut oil since it is similar to babassu although I have never tried babassu oil. Also this oil blend will go solid so just warm it up in a hot water bath.
WHAT YOU NEED
A double boiler/microwave
Digital Scale/Measuring spoons
Heat Resistant Bowls
Measure the solid oils or oil in a double boiler or microwave, then add the other liquid oils and essential oil and mix. When all the ingredients are well blended pour in your glass jar.
The original recipe was for an overnight treatment oil, however I have used it as a hot oil treatment for my scalp. Part your hair into two or 4 parts then take the oil, apply to scalp and gently massage in. You will feel the tingles and you can leave overnight or 30 to 45 minutes.
It will not only promote growth but it will keep your scalp in good condition one tingle at a time.
