Hair Growth Oil Recipe Using Essential Oils

If you're looking to promote hair growth and maintain healthy hair, making your own hair growth oil using essential oils can be a natural and effective option. The following recipe combines various essential oils known for their hair nourishing and growth-stimulating properties. Remember to perform a patch test before applying any new oil mixture to your scalp to ensure you're not allergic to any ingredients. Here's a simple recipe to get you started:


  • 2 tablespoons of carrier oil (such as coconut oil, argan oil, or jojoba oil)
  • 3 drops of lavender essential oil
  • 3 drops of rosemary essential oil
  • 3 drops of peppermint essential oil
  • 2 drops of cedarwood essential oil


  1. Start by selecting a carrier oil as the base for your hair growth oil. Coconut oil, argan oil, and jojoba oil are excellent options due to their nourishing and moisturizing properties. You can choose one of these carrier oils or create a blend by combining them in equal proportions.

  2. In a small bowl or container, add the carrier oil of your choice.

  3. Next, add the essential oils to the carrier oil one at a time, starting with lavender essential oil. Lavender oil helps soothe the scalp and promote healthy hair growth.

  4. Follow with rosemary essential oil, known for its ability to stimulate hair follicles and improve circulation to the scalp.

  5. Add peppermint essential oil, which has a cooling effect on the scalp and may help increase blood flow to promote hair growth.

  6. Include cedarwood essential oil, known for its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties, which can help maintain a healthy scalp.

  7. Finally, add thyme essential oil, which is believed to help strengthen hair follicles and reduce hair loss.

  8. Mix all the oils thoroughly to ensure they are well combined.

  9. Your hair growth oil is now ready for use. Transfer it to a small, dark glass bottle for storage, as it will help preserve the oils' potency.


To apply the hair growth oil, follow these steps:

  1. Part your hair into sections and apply a small amount of the oil mixture directly to your scalp.

  2. Gently massage the oil into your scalp using circular motions to stimulate blood circulation and ensure even distribution.

  3. Continue massaging for 5 to 10 minutes to help the oil penetrate the scalp.

  4. Once the oil is applied to the scalp, you can also run your fingers through your hair to distribute the remaining oil along the hair shafts.

  5. Leave the oil on your scalp and hair for at least 30 minutes, or ideally, overnight for maximum benefits.

  6. After the desired duration, wash your hair as usual using a mild shampoo and conditioner.

  7. Repeat this process 1-2 times per week to support hair growth and maintain healthy hair.

Remember, consistency is key when using natural remedies for hair growth. It may take time to see noticeable results, so be patient and continue the treatment regularly. Additionally, if you experience any irritation or discomfort while using the oil mixture, discontinue use and consult a healthcare professional.
