Carrier and Essential Oils

Like Tree1Likes
  • 1 Post By sammyantha

I am trying to be a DIY'er. I recently discovered my new favorite store the Vitamin Shoppe. Anyway getting to the point, I bought 4 carrier oils: avacado oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil(finally!!), and grape seed oil. 2 essential oils: rosemary and peppermint. I mixed them all together 1 oz each for the carriers and 2 drops of rosemary and peppermint per oz. I did research on how many drops I should use.

Does anyone have any recommendations on other great oils or butters that would be good to use?

I always put 3 - 5 drops of lavender oil in my water/conditioner spray mix for its cleansing properties and nice smell but my bottle is quite big so 3 might do it 😊

I think moroccan argan oil is a fantastic oil... has small molecules so will penetrate the hair.

Also Jamaican Black castor oil, Emu oil, shea butter, coconut oil, neem oil, palm oil, sunflower seed oil!

I want to try lavender. Im excited to see what it can do to my hair. I am kind of tired of the peppermint smell but i do like it.

I made some lavender water that I use to refresh on second day hair. I love the smell. I spray it on my linens and the clothes hanging in my closet.
