What is the right percentage for mixing essential oils

Post  terminator1983 on Wed Aug 02, 2017 1:57 am

I am using a daily overnight blend of 2% rosemary, 2% lavender and 1 drop of peppermint oil in 15ml of emu oil but from few days it seems like my hair loss is increased.

So i want to ask what is the right percentage for mixing essential oils should i reduce the percentage to total 2% like most of essential oil blending sites suggests.

Thanks

Perhaps you are getting a shed before a regrow. I do not know about emu oil, but I have always recommended removing any thick oils after 2 hours with vodka and a towel. Any residue can restrict skin oxygen flow and cause blockages.

As for the concentration, for almost 2 years I daily apply 100% concentrated extracts to my hair and have never seen any shed. I mix and use hot oils like cinnamon and tea tree, never any problem.

The other thing that you could be seeing is a demodex mite die off. When they are killed by oils like tea tree or maybe suffocate by oils , they die in the pores and promote a bad bacteria situation. That might lead to a shed.

Thanks for the reply.
I have stopped using oil because from past few days i am getting strange feelings on scalp do not know how to describe its like burning or needling on scalp.Should I continue using if its regrow shedding but i have started taking multivitamin to reduce hair fall.

How can i know if it's regrowth shedding or something else?

From what i have read about emu oil on different websites that it doesn't clog pores and penetrate deep well in the skin layers compared to other carrier oils.

Hi terminator, I am just adding topicals into my regime and I am shedding as well. I mean if I just apply the oils I can see lots of hairs in my hands. When I wash them in the morning, lots are falling out as well.

As of the moment I don't know if its a good thing or a bad thing.

I am sorry to say that it seems that only time tells if it is a shed before regrow, or just treatment making it worse. Everybody is different, I never shed with concentrate oils.

I donīt see the benefits of oils anymore, since they are refined or in another word processed.
During my early trials I used a large amount of different oils, and came to the conclusion that I needed the nutrients from the actual plant, and the best way was water and vodka.

The other downside with oils are the constant use of shampoo to get rid of it.
So in other words it cannot penetrate the scalp, and you have to wash it off from your hair anyway.

Oils are complete waste, not to mention messy.

Could be better, but I donīt shampoo my hair since I only crush some herbs into a small amount of water, and rub it into my hair.
It stays fresh for at least week without smelling.

The only thing you will ever know what you are using is by doing it by your own.
A post regarding why processed, minimized, pills, oils, shampoos docent work as they should is for no use, since people think itīs evolving.

Itīs a consumers market, and for some reason we donīt have the time anymore to do it by our own.
Our interactive possibilities that should give us more spare time actually does the opposite.

For me oils cause more shedding, its not best the idea to use them if the hair is already weakend.
If using essential oils, best is to dissolve them in alcohol than add emulsifier (i.e polysorbate 80) water and some glycerin for - little- oiliness.
glycerin is water solubale so it washes off easily in the shower.

and myabe not using oils and alcohol everyday as it may irritate the scalp.

anyway, im considering going full natural like sage1's approach.

For some reason chaga and vodka marries incredibly well together, and it extracts the nutrients from it so therefore the chaga lessens the aggressiveness of the alcohol.
Docent irritate the scalp, and my hair is fresh all the time with non shampooing at all.

Regarding shampooing in general, and the organic ones for example the regulation is that only some of the ingredients has to be certified organic so they can label it as so called organic shampoo.
So in my opinion is to skip the shampoos, and if you donīt want to use chaga just take some dried herbs for example and let them infuse with a small amount of water.

Rub it in your hair and just rinse it off with water.

Sage, is this a similar method to how you make your chaga tincture?

Then just throw the herbs in at the end?

I found this method to put it together. I might have a go at it for a while because it's less hassle than mixing up herbs all the time.

Exactly correct, and that is the reason I chose chaga tincture as a base, since it lasts for ages as wine for example.
You can throw in whatever herb that suits you, even the seeds from fenugreek for example so you donīt have to inhale concentrated capsules.

Thanks Sage, I've ordered some chaga and will give it a go. Do you throw the herbs in fresh each time you apply or put them all into the tincture once it's ready?

I throw in all the herbs, and just let them simmer in there, so I do not make fresh ones each time.
You can probably use a ready to go tinkture until a home made one is done, but they take quiet hefty prices though for the small amount.

Cheap to buy chaga chunks, and let it infuse with vodka.

I still want to know how/why Chaga came into the picture here.

Were you just walking down the street one day and thought "Oh look at that Chaga, I'm gonna add that to my regimen!"????
