Is it safe to use essential oil mix daily for hair

Post  terminator1983 on Mon Jun 19, 2017 1:12 am

I have mixed 6 drops Rosemary, 5 drops lavender and 2 drops of peppermint in 15 ml emu oil and have been using it for a week. Is it safe to use it daily and is my concentration of essential oils right or should I reduce the percentage.

According to essential oil mixing guides the sum of oils should be between 5-6% but there are also some sites that have suggested 6-8%. 12 drops is 4% in 15 ml so my blend is a little higher than 4%.

The guidelines usually recommend that you dilute at least 50% for intense oils like tea tree, peppermint, cinnamon, etc.  I have always used many different oils and all of the above full strength with no concerns.   Just do not apply right after a shower or sweating.

 If you are mixing with a base oil like emu,  in my non medical opinion, you are fine.  I have been using many oils for a year an a half.  I like them,  but prefer the green tea concentrate with other things like seaweed and ascorbic acid.

Any heavy oils quickly clog up my pores.
