E is For Essential Oils- Top 6 Essential Oils

Essential oils are not only a great addition to your hair routine, but they also assist in the growth and the health of your mini YC's hair. 

Essential oils are extracted from various of seeds, fruits, leaves, flowers and sometime the bark. Oils are extracted from the purest part of the plant making them strong in consistency. However most EO's should be paired up and diluted with another oil before applying them to hair and especially to the scalp. By doing this you reduce the risk of icky irritation and/or burns. 

 

Err on the side of caution when testing new EO's. We suggest trying the following steps:

  1. Take a few strands of hair or target a small area of skin to see if reaction occurs. 
  2. Add a drop of your chosen EO to a teaspoon of Coconut Oil, Olive Oil or Jajoba Oil and rub the mixture on the inside of your elbow and leave for 24 hours to gauge if once again irritation occurs. If not YOUR COOKING ON GAS! and ready to have your mini YC's hair smelling like a botanical garden.
