Make Your Own Stimulating Scalp Massage (Non Oily)

This recipe is not oily despite the fact that is uses essential oils. The witch hazel leaves you scalp feeling tingly and fresh.

Rosemary essential oil has been used for thousands of years to help stimulate the scalp. The lavender oil calms the scalp whist the witch hazel acts as an astringent.


  • 1 tablespoon witch hazel (distilled)
  • 3 drops Lavender essential oil
  • 3 drops rosemary essential oil

Mix the ingredients together, shake vigorously to disperse the essential oils. Massage in to the scalp (damp or dry) using your fingertips. It’s up to you if you want to rinse it out or not.

Easy – Hello stimulated scalp!

      There are lots of suppliers in the UK online that ship here and ebay stores can be good if you are careful

    Hey Amy,
    I think I’ve seen this question on here before but i can’t remember where.. Where do you buy essential oils and how do you know they’re good quality?
    Thanks for the post! xo

      Hi Caoimhe, I generally buy mine from a UK business supplier. I sometimes buy them in the health shop but they can be expensive. Quality wise, it’s best to go with a known brand, and 100% pure ingredients etc. If you look in your natural health shop (they won’t stock any rubbish) take note of the brand that make the oils and look them up on ebay. Be careful and ensure that the seal is not broken before you buy – I always message the seller first for more info. Internet is the best option! x
