1. Mix the oil together with the following ratio to make 3% peppermint oil:
- Peppermint oil : Jojoba oil = 6 drops : 2 tsp
In other words, mix 6 drops of peppermint essential oil and 2 teaspoon of jojoba oil together. Use the same ratio if you want to increase the amount. For instance, for 18 drops of peppermint oil, 6 teaspoon of jojoba oil is required.

Note: The study doesn’t give out any detail on their mixture ratio. The recipe listed here uses a general guideline from the essential oil dilution chart. The study also doesn’t mention how long you should leave the topical treatment applied to the scalp, so we added the steps with the asterisks (*). These steps are taken from another research study which was used for testing the effects of stimulating hair growth using an aromatherapy oil mixture.
