  • Add 5 drops of rosemary essential oil
  • Massage into scalp and throughout your hair.
  • Cover head with shower cap for 15-20 minutes.
  • Shampoo to remove.
  • Repeat weekly as desired.
  • Store away from sunlight and it will keep for at least one month.

Why olive oil and rosemary are good for your hair

Rosemary has significant antioxidant properties to protect against cell damage and has been used for centuries to stimulate hair growth. Olive oil nourishes the hair shaft and protects it against the elements.

Precautions

If any rash or skin irritation results, discontinue use immediately. For external use only. Do not ingest rosemary oil.
