Hello Beautiful Ladies (and Gents
I came across this blog post from LoveyourTresses.com, and decided to share
It is all about the many uses of Essential Oils for Hair and Beauty needs, enjoy!
I don’t think essential oils are given enough credit when it comes to how beneficial they are to the scalp, hair and my recent revelation… skin!Their properties range from being soothing and calming to antiseptic, healing, antibacterial, antidepressant regenerative, the list really does goes on. Their uses are just as impressive as their properties and dare I say even more widespread! Night time pillow drops, scented bath water, scalp oil, facial oil cleansing, body cream, oil burning… don’t mess with me I’m an essential oil groupie!You’ll be happy to know essential oils are also great when it comes to encouraging hair growth due to their ‘stimulant’ nature. I’d especially recommend them for those whose hairlines need a bit of a kick up the behind to grow and somewhat thicken out already!
