I ‘ll talk you through how to apply these either by themselves or blended together
Have a look through your cabinet to see what you may already have - or what’s available in your local store and let’s get started!
Tea Tree Oil
So this 2013 study found that a mixture containing tree tea tree oil and minoxidil was more effective than just the Minoxidil on its own in improving hair growth.
Minoxidil is a chemical product - it's a vasodilator, so it helps to enlarge your veins that
are heading up towards your scalp making sure that there's lots of nutrients that
get there so that your scalp is nourished and your hair is healthy.
Tea Tree Oil has powerful cleansing and Antibacterial and Antimicrobial properties so when used a directly onto your scalp topically it can help to
unplug clogged pores and increase hair growth.
It's also really important to remember that Tea Tree Oil is very concentrated so please do check, the instructions because you don't want to add too much.
More studies are needed on using Tea Tree Oil.
Pumpkin Seed Oil
Pumpkin seed oil blocks 5-alpha reductase which is an enzyme that converts testosterone to DHT.
In this study, men who were given 400 milligrams of pumpkin seed oil a day had a forty percent increase in hair growth than men taking a placebo.
Saw Palmetto Oil
Saw palmetto oil (SPO) has a direct affect on the levels of testosterone in the body, and has been shown to reduce levels of DHT and testosterone.
This is because it limits the enzyme alpha-5 reductase which converts testosterone to the DHT, which binds to and inhibits your hair follicles.
According to this study Rosemary Oil performed just as well as
Minoxidil but with less scalp itching as a side effect, so just mix several drops
of Rosemary Oil with Coconut Oil.
Lavender has lots of antimicrobial and antibacterial properties that help to keep your scalp really healthy because when you've got a healthy scalp this is like the soil for your flower bed
everything that comes out of the flower bed is gonna be healthy and beautiful. Keeping your scalp healthy and nourishing, it is the best way forward for healthy hair growth.
This study found that Lavender Oil is able to generate faster hair growth in mice.
Lavender Oil has also done really well in comparison to minoxidil how
Trials on mice showed that peppermint oil works almost as well as Rogaine in treating hair loss, but without any of the potential side effects such as scalp irritation
Peppermint oil can help to promote hair growth in the anagen or growing phase
This study found that peppermint oil when used on mice increase the number of: Follicles, Follicle depth and Overall hair growth
As all of these oils are essential oils - so they need to be mixed with a carrier oil
You can’t apply these oils directly onto your skin as they need to be diluted!
Add ten drops of the essential oil of choice to one ounce of jojoba oil or Coconut oil, or scale up if you want to make a large batch.
Massage it into your scalp using your fingertips for four minutes before you shampoo. Remember to use a sulfate and paraben shampoo so they don't actually strip the oils out of your hair again.
Add 30 drops of essential oil to 3 oz coconut oil.
Massage the mixture into your roots and leave on for thirty minutes or so -
You can also leave it on over night - but with coconut oil - don’t leave it on longer than overnight because if it’s left on for too long - it actually starts to dry out your hair.
Shampoo with oil
If you have a healthy shampoo, which is free of parabens, sulphates, mineral dyes etc - you can add essential oils to your wash routine by simply adding the oil to your shampoo. Please don’t do this with a shampoo listing sulfates as an ingredient, or you’ll just waste your money on oils that will be stripped away.
To figure out how many drops of essential oil you should add to your shampoo, some recommend to multiply the number of ounces in the shampoo bottle by ten, and add that many drops of essential oil.

Peppermint Oil and Rosemary Oil
This smells and feels really fresh on the scap
These two oils are some of the most studied and most often cited as natural DHT blockers so this would be perfect to blend with coconut oil and leave on as a mask.
Lavender Oil and Saw Palmetto
Lavender punches you in the face with that purple smell and helps the saw palmetto work its magic on that alpha-5 reductase. Massage it into your scalp with a little jojoba oil for some follicle invigoration.
Pumpkin Seed Oil and Tea Tree Oil
