Natural dandruff recipe?

I'm a sufferer of dandruff and itchy scalp, and since I've started using all natural products in my hair I've had to re-evaluate how i manage my scalp condition. In the past I've using treated shampoos that left my 4a hair brittle and dry. I did some research and I learned that essential oils such as tea tree and peppermint can help treat flakes and itch. However, I don't know what ratio or combination of oils would be most effective. If anyone knows any natural remedies or recipes and could share them with me, I'd really appreciate it. It would also be great if you could note how often the "treatment" should be used.
I don't know if this would be considered natural but I have heard of some people using Listerine (like the mouth wash lol). You could google it.

However, a natural alternative or atleast what my grandmas/mom would have me do was apply lemon juice. Usually if it stings your dandruffy. I would apply it to my scalp and leave it on for an hour or so. Then I would just wash my hair as usual.
Sometimes I get carried away and manipulate him too much. He tells me he's fine on his own but I never listen. I wash him less now and all in all we're happy.

I had pretty decent success with using coconut oil and peppermint oil mixed together in my hair overnight, or even for a few hours (I have dermatitis). If worse came to worse I'd use a special shampoo, but even then, I always used the coconut/peppermint oil mix.
