Rosemary oil for thinning hair
« on: September 08, 2015, 05:38:45 PM »
Can this oil be used on your scalp if you have high blood pressure?   I am new at using EO and I read online not to use this oil.

Hi there Elafly,

You should exercise extreme caution when using rosemary or other camphor-rich oils with high blood pressure.  Low dilution are recommended in this case.

Personally, I would use Ylang Ylang for thinning hair instead.  Ylang Ylang used to be used in hair tonics
