  1. Hello Yamini,
    I really did enjoy your post. You did quite a research on the benefits and importance of lavender oil especially when mixed with rosemary oil.

    To add to your article, there are also other essential oils that can help improve our scalp skin condition. An example is Castor oil. Castor oil provides vitamin E, protein, and Omega 6 and 9 fatty acids. These nutrients are proven to stimulate healthy hair growth and prevent split ends. To achieve thin consistency, mix the castor oil with coconut oil (ratio should be 2:1). Warm the solution on a double boiler and apply it to your scalp with a cotton ball.

    You will get the best results if you leave it on overnight, or even longer if you can. This would be perfect for a weekend that you know you just want to stay in, so you can leave the treatment on for a couple of days to really get the full effects of this amazing miracle ingredient.
