benefits of rosemary essential oil for hairRosemary oil is a widely used ingredient to stimulate hair regrowth. Research conducted by the University of Maryland Medical Center indicates that there is a close link between rosemary oil and hair growth.

The research team studied 84 people who suffer from alopecia areata (hair falling out in bald patches, which happens more frequently to women). The participants were instructed to massage their scalps with rosemary essential oil and a few other essential oils such as lavender and thyme daily for seven months.

The results indicated that the participants experienced significant hair regrowth (Just in case you ever wonder, more benefits of rosemary essential oil also include pain and stress relief, ingestion and healthy immune system).

There are people who would like to find out how to make rosemary essential oil for hair at home. But I personally think that making it from scratch is too much work.

Where to buy rosemary oil? You can easily find it at any drug store. For instance, Amazon sells this brand – NOW rosemary oil for only $10 (2 ounce). There are also many other brands, but make sure to find ones that are 100% pure and undiluted.

    My hair has been falling out a lot recently and I don’t know what to do at this point. I don’t want to spend too much to buy all different oils.

    • Hi Laurie,
      According to MPB Research, emu oil works great for frontal hair regrowth. So if you have prominent hair loss on your frontal area, try emu oil. Another option is to buy different essential oils (rosemary, emu, castor, and coconut) and mix them all together for the maximum benefit.

  4. In the first video with Tatiana Karolina, she shows how to apply rosemary oil onto the hair roots. Is this pure rosemary oil or is it rosemary oil in a carrier oil?
