Alopecia Areata Essential Oil Scalp Massage

Do you or someone you know have alopecia areata? Great news! A study in Aberdeen concluded that treatment of a scalp massage with essential oils was safe and effective.

Eighty-six patients were randomized into 2 groups. The active group massaged essential oils (thyme, rosemary, lavender, and cedarwood) in a mixture of carrier oils (jojoba and grapeseed) into their scalp daily. The control group used only carrier oils for their massage, also daily.

44% of patients in the active group showed improvement compared with 15% of patients in the control group.

Thankfully, they included the recipe used for the essential oil massage! Here it is:

-2 drops Thyme essential oil
-3 drops Lavender essential oil
-3 drops Rosemary essential oil
-2 drops Cedarwood essential oil
-3ml jojoba oil
-20ml grapeseed oil
