Aromatherapy Shampoo

Get Shimmer and Shine with Homemade Aromatherapy Shampoos

Using natural ingredients ensures gentle, revitalizing and restorative treatment for the protection and appearance of your hair. Essential oils can help improve the condition of your hair and scalp by stimulating circulation of blood in your scalp. Aromatherapy hair care treatments can make your hair shiny and healthy looking.

Although commercial aromatherapy shampoo and conditioner flood the market but they probably contain low levels of low quality essential oils or no pure essential oils at all. In addition, certain ingredients can actually make the conditions of your hair worse, such as makes your hair dry; causing an itchy scalp and even dandruff. And to make it worse some chemical ingredients even can makes you loss you hair, skin rashes and in some cases severe allergic reactions.

Mixing essential oils with synthetic chemicals can create chemical changes in essential oils, detracting them from therapeutic properties. The best way to assure you're getting the essential oils you want at therapeutic levels is by making your own treatments.

The following are general guidelines to use for making your own aromatherapy shampoo:

Basic Recipe

In order for making 8 ounces of shampoo, here are things you need to get:

  • 1/2 cup of each castile liquid soap and spring water
  • 1 tbsp light carrier oil, such as: coconut, jojoba, hemp or oilve oil (omit if you have very oily hair.)
  • A Blend of essential oils according to your hair type.

Combine the ingredients and make sure the blend is uniform. Place the blend in a squeeze bottle or an empty shampoo bottle. Use as you would a normal shampoo and rinse with cool water.

For a quicker way of making aromatherapy shampoo you can purchase an unscented shampoo and mix it with the essential oil blend suited for your hair type.

Important things to notice:
