Moisturizing Scalp Treatment Recipe

To add moisture and regulate a dry and flakey scalp.

Add Jojoba and essential oil drops to a glass container
Pour the blend into the palm of your hand, and then massage it into your scalp.
Let sit for 30 minutes to as much as overnight. Rinse out with your favorite shampoo.

We always recommend diluting essential oils with a carrier oil like Jojoba Oil when applied topically on the skin.  Benefits of safe dilution include:

  • Increased absorption into the skin

Essential oils are highly volatile substances.  If applied directly to the skin, a portion of the oil will not be absorbed due to evaporation.  Carrier oils prevent essential oils from evaporating while on the skin, which maximizes absorption time.

  • Prevention of skin irritation or sensitivity to the Essential Oil

Depending on your skin sensitivity, you may experience skin irritation when applying essential oils topically.  Proper dilution reduces the likelihood of skin irritation when an oil is used topically.  Continued use of an essential oil that has not been diluted properly can lead to a developed sensitivity to the oil.  Even if an oil is not causing a reaction when applied undiluted, irreversible damage may occur through repeated exposure.

  • Maximizes the effectiveness of the Essential Oil

Essential oils are so pure and potent, they are intended to be diluted.  Contrary to popular belief, using an oil undiluted does not necessarily mean you will receive better results.  Unless you are using an undiluted oil under the supervision of a trained professional, you will receive maximum benefits from an oil if it is diluted appropriately.  You will also get more applications out of one bottle if you dilute the essential oil when applying topically.

Luv This Stuff
I have been a fan of jojoba oil for years! I use it every night since I practice "the oil cleansing method" for washing my face and neck. If you aren't familiar with this I highly suggest checking it out and perhaps giving it a try. I also combine rosemary oil with jojoba and massage it into my scalp and hair.

Ease of use
I love the 12 oz pump jojoba dispenser! I use jojoba all year round, especially in the winter months for my dry skin. The pump dispenser makes it so much easier for me to apply the jojoba oil.

Quality product
Used this to make a general salve and I am quite pleased with my results. Been sharing recipes with friends and my salve turned out smoother and more silky than ones they have produced. I don't know what I did differently but I suspect it has something to do with the freshness and quality of the oils. Thanks, RMO!

Great carrier, great pump!
Absolute favorite carrier oil! Super moisturizing, not greasy due to being a wax not an oil, leaves my skin shiny but not oily. Mixes great with different oils, and I LOVE the pump in the larger bottle!

Can you explain the differences between jojoba and coconut oil and their uses?
Joni B on Sep 6, 2018

Jojoba oil is popularly used for moisturizing hair and moisturizing all skin types; it helps to keep a balance to the skin. The carrier oil does contain a scent; so the scent of jojoba will be included with other essential oil smells. Coconut oil is a universal carrier oil that is great for all skin types. This carrier oil does not contain a scent.
