How to Add Essential oils to your Shampoo

Adding few drops of essential oils to your shampoo while washing your hair is one the best ways to get the most out of the therapeutic benefits of essential  oils.

But, there is a rule of thumb to follow while using essential oils either in skin care or hair care.

As essential oils are highly concentrated oils of plants and herbs, there oils should and must be diluted before using.

So, here while using in your shampoo and conditioner, use only the said (that I am gonna mention now) amount and never more than that.

♥Follow these steps while you are in shower and your hair is wet and ready to be washed♥


-Take one tablespoon full of which ever shampoo you are using into your palm, but it is best to use herbal, mild or organic shampoo with minimal ingredients. Avoid using harmful chemicals as much as your can.

– Now add not more than 2 drops of essential oils (as per your scalp’s/hair’s type/problem) that I mentioned above.

-Mix them both using both of your palms and apply to your hair and massage gently for 3-4 minutes.

-Cleanse your hair well and wash off with normal water. 

-Follow up with a conditioner.
