¼ Cup of fresh rosemary washed and dried
½ raw virgin coconut oil
In a medium saucepan, heat the oil over low heat. When hot, add rosemary and stir by pressing the herbs into the hot oil for 30 seconds. Remove from heat and cover. Let it sit for 4 hours to infuse at room temperature. If the oil has hardened return to low heat. Strain and discard rosemary.
To use, scoop ½ a teaspoon into fingertips to warm and massage into the scalp. Leave for 20 minutes, or overnight, then rinse. Follow-up with shampoo and proceed with your normal hair care routine.
Rosemary improves blood circulation in the scalp, thus stimulating follicle growth. It has also been known to limit excess shedding, prevent dandruff, and reduce itching. Coconut oil hydrates and adds shine while sealing in moisture.
