oils

Hey guys,
I'm doing the grow out challenge and in the guidelines, it talks about stimulating the scalp with rosemary essential oil/any essential oil and grapeseed oil/any carrier oil.
Does anyone know where to get these besides online, or have any suggestions on other oils for this?
I know I could probably find them myself, but any extra suggestions would help .
TIA

I get terrific essential oils in the local health food store. I make sure to buy the edible ones or rather the ones you can use in foods. That insures there are no added additives and it is pure. Some are called essential oils but they are for adding fragrance to your ambience on burners and such. These cheaper EO's might have been cut with other oils, synthetic fragrances, preservatives and such so I don't think they are ideal for massage use. You will know the difference since these are not okay to put in foods - it won't be written. Pure edible ones have it written they are safe in foods. Rosemary is a fairly cheap EO but there are some types, depending how rare (difficult to get quantity) that are really expensive....for example I think rose EO is quite expensive if I remember correctly.

I just asked a question about massage oils in the Growing Out Forum mostly asking for the recipe or quantities.

LOL sorry I found your post when I did a search on essential oils! Sorry, I'm not from Australia and did not realize you posted this in the Aussie forum. I am in Europe. Italy to be exact. After I posted you I realized that any EO's where ever you are might not have the edible part written but I guess you could just ask who ever it is selling them if they are pure.

I get mine either from the health food shop or the chemist, chemist tends to be cheaper in my experience. As long as it says pure essential oil you should be ok. I use jojoba as a carrier as it fairly runny and light and absorbs easily. (I use it on my psoriasis though, not as a stimulant, so I don't know what you could use).
I went today actually and found the rosemary. So glad it's one of the cheaper ones cause I saw EOs that were more than twice the price.
I tried to decide b/w the jojoba and almond oil and opted for the almond 'cause I think I've read suggestions for that in general (and it's cheaper lol). We'll see.
Thanks again
