THIS IS NOT EDIBLE. Rub this sweet-smelling, anti-dandruff oil into the scalp as a pre-conditioning treatment before washing hair. Its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties will help soothe and tone a dry, irritated scalp. Use 3 times a week for 2 weeks to blitz dandruff, then once a week to keep it at bay.

Ingredients

Directions

Place the rosemary, lavender and thyme in a glass heatproof bowl. Stir in the coconut oil. Cover the bowl with a lid and place over a pan of boiling water to create a double boiler. Heat over medium-low heat for 1 hour. Let cool. When cool, stir in the peppermint essential oil. Strain and pour the hair oil into bottles. Apply 1 tablespoon to hair and massage well into the scalp. Wrap hair in a towel and leave for 30 minutes. Then wash hair a couple of times with normal shampoo to get the oil out completely. Use 3 times a week for the first 2 weeks, and once a week as a preventative measure. Avoid the eye area, and if you feel any discomfort, wash off immediately. The oil will keep for up to 1 year in a cool dark place.
