DIY Rosemary & Sage Scalp Oil

Sophia asks, “Do you have any scalp oil recipes using rosemary and sage oil?”

CHALL-ANGE *in my Sandman Simms voice*

I managed to alter a couple recipes to suit this very purpose, let me know what you think.  Rosemary and sage are great herbs to treat dryness, itching or dandruff.  For overall scalp health try using lavender or chamomile.  

Rosemary & Sage Essential Scalp Oil

This recipe is a modification of my favorite scalp oil.

  • 4 ounces almond oil
  • 2 ounces safflower oil
  • 2 ounces jojoba oil
  • 10 drops rosemary essential oil
  • 10 drops sage essential oil
Mix all ingredients together in a clean, sterile bottle (I like to use a color applicator bottle with narrow tip).  Store in a cool dark, place away from direct sunlight.  To use apply a few drops on scalp and gently massage into scalp with fingertips.

Rosemary & Sage Easy Herbal Infusion

This recipe uses infusion of fresh or dried herbs, it takes a little longer but is cheaper to make yourself.  You can pick up these herbs from your local grocery store.

  • 6 springs rosemary
  • 6 sprigs sage
  • 4 ounces almond oil
  • 2 ounces safflower oil
  • 2 ounces jojoba oil

Note: 1 sprig =  5-7 leaves.  Gently bruise the herbs by crushing in your hands then add to jar.  Pour oil into small pot or saucepan.  Lightly heat oil over low heat until warm (do not boil) then pour over herbs.  Oil should completely cover herbs so cut or break them if necessary.  Allow oil to cool, then seal container and store in cool dark place for about a week.  Strain mixture to remove herbs and store in clean sterile bottle.  You can make an easy chamomile infused oil by pouring over chamomile tea bags.
