Susanna’s Homemade Dandruff/Eczema Hair/Scalp Oil Treatment

I came up with this recipe when I was having problems with an itchy scalp (or eczema, which I think was caused by something I ate). But this was a relief, and it made my hair and scalp feel and look great.

First, dissolve 1 teaspoon of sea salt in 2 tablespoons of water. It only takes a few minutes, or seconds if you use hot water. Let this sit.

The rest of the ingredients:

1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 drops lavender oil
2 drops eucalyptus oil
3 drops tea tree oil
2 drops rosemary oil
1/2 tbsp jojoba oil
1/2 tbsp almond oil

Mix all of the oils and apple cider vinegar together. Add the sea salt water. Carefully rub this into your scalp and hair. This will burn your eyes, so be careful! Once you have it rubbed in, use a shower cap or plastic grocery bag to keep from dripping. Leave it on while you take a bath or clean the house, a minimum of 15 minutes.

Thoroughly rinse. Again, be careful not to get this in your eyes. Use your regular shampoo to get out oils. The vinegar will stink a little bit, so it’s probably best to do this when you’re not going to be somewhere anytime soon. It will take two washings to get the vinegar odor completely out. I suggest the second washing on the following day so that the formula has a chance to work well. But the result is great!
