Whether you are a man or woman, hair loss can be a devastating event. And it doesn't just affect aging people. Many young people lose their hair due to stress, bad health, pregnancy, or hormone imbalance. I'm asked a lot about my favorite essential oils for hair loss and regrowth and today I want to share a DIY recipe that helped me when I lost a ton of hair after my molar pregnancy.
My Favorite Essential Oils for Healthy Hair
Tea tree essential oil is anti-fungal so it will help to heal your scalp of any issues that may be causing itchiness. Peppermint essential oil is so invigorating and will help with blood flow. Rosemary essential oil and geranium essential oil are great for smooth silky hair. Many DIY shampoos and conditioners use these oils to promote healthy hair and a clean scalp. I also use some of these in my homemade hairspray recipe which you absolutely must try!
Pair these essential oils with some magnesium gel and you've got a great root treatment or hair serum to combat hair loss!
DIY Essential Oils for Hair Loss
Ready to get started? Gather up your oils, a small glass bottle (I love an amber glass bottle with a dropper for this) and your magnesium gel!
- Put all your essential oils into your glass bottle and add the magnesium gel. Add your lid or dropper cap and shake well to mix.
- After showering, massage a small amount of the mixture into your scalp. Style hair as usual.
Tell me, which essential oils for hair loss are your favorites? Do you use just a few, or all of them?

When it comes to drug interactions and contraindications, there are literally textbooks devoted to the study of essential oil safety and, as a trained researcher and doctor, I think it’s important to note that there is virtually no research out there discussing how essential oils interact with drugs in long-term human clinical trials. This means that essential oil safety is still a wild frontier in the science community and no one really knows (for certain) how essential oils will interact with drugs or your body.
Nonetheless, properly diluting your essential oils is fundamental to safety and effectiveness because they are highly concentrated plant compounds.
