Everyone wants to have naturally healthy hair and this easy-to-make, homemade recipe will do wonders for your luscious locks!

This serum will moisturize your strands with a nourishing oil that will restore luster to your hair and the essential oils will stimulate hair growth and also help to strengthen the capillaries that supply blood to the scalp and hair follicles and improve elasticity. Scrub your scalp to stimulate circulation and you’ll see and feel noticeable improvements in the health of your hair in just a few weeks!

Rosemary Essential OilJojoba Oil (Cold pressed)
Jojoba oil is a liquid wax produced from a desert plant called Simmondsia Chinensis. It is cold pressed from the seeds of the jojoba plant, a shrub, native to California, Arizona and Mexico. Jojoba oil when applied to the skin has absorption properties similar to sebum (oil) and prevents moisture loss. Jojoba oil conditions your hair and prevents it from being dry, brittle and dull

Rosemary Essential Oil
Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves, flowers and twigs of R. officinalis and the numerous sub varieties. It is a pale yellow to almost colorless mobile liquid with a strong, fresh, woody-herbaceous smell. Rosemary is probably one of the best known and most used of the aromatic herbs. It is a relaxing and revitalizing oil that has the ability to heal wounds and regenerate the skin. The oil is reputed to stimulate hair growth and prevent premature baldness and well as used in the prevention of dandruff.

Beauty Note: This herb should not be used by anyone who is pregnant or suffering from epilepsy. Because rosemary is a stimulant, it should not be used by heart patients.

West Indian Bay Essential Oil
West Indian Bay (Pimenta racemosa) essential oil is steam distilled or water distilled from the leaves of the tree native to West Indies and is cultivated in Venezuela, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean Islands. The oil is recommended as a scalp stimulant and can also be used as a hair rinse for those who suffer with dandruff.

Chamomile Essential Oil
Chamomile essential oil is distilled from the flowering tops of Anthemis nobilis. It is a native of Western Europe and is now cultivated in England, Belgium, France and Hungary. Using pure chamomile essential oil on the scalp helps to strengthen the capillaries that supply blood to the scalp and hair follicles and improve elasticity.

Precautions: Chamomile is in the Ragweed family and may react with those who have extreme sensitivities to the Ragweed family.

  • ¼ cup jojoba oil
  • 5 drops rosemary essential oil
  • 5 drops West Indian bay essential oil
  • 5 drops chamomile essential oil
  • Combine the jojoba oil with the rosemary essential oil, the West Indian bay essential oil and the chamomile essential oil and store in a darkly tinted glass bottle with a tight fitting lid.
  • Let the mixture sit for 24 hours before using.
  • Apply serum from scalp to the ends of the strands of your hair, cover hair with plastic cap or warm towel for 15 minutes.
  • Shampoo and rinse your hair twice.
  • Dry and style your hair as normal.
This treatment can be done once a week for normal to dry hair or once a month for oily hair.

    Love Rosemary Oil! The best part is that it also has anti-infective properties which make it so powerful for those who are experiencing hair loss or thinning as well as those who have psoriasis too. Great recipe :)

    Totally just getting into all the do it yourself hair & personal care products! This is really helpful. Especially because I have really big, curly hair. Thank you!

    Thanks for posting this! Can it be used on the face as well, for oil cleansing? (using oil to wash the face — usually some version of apply oil, let soak in, wipe off with a hot damp cloth.) Thank you :)

    Thanks so much for sharing your recipe! I love natural home-made beauty recipes for my skin so I am looking forward to trying this one for my hair!! I’ve never heard of West India Bay, though. Is it in the bay leaf family?

    I might make this only without the rosemary oil as it’s known to stain blonde hair brown.

    Sounds like jojoba alone is the key… I might try this though, as part of my experiment to imitate the opera singer Vallandri’s hair lotion that she claimed caused her hair to grow to floor length.
