Is rosemary oil good for your hair? Well, rosemary has been been used extensively since Ancient Egyptian times! Today, the medicinal benefits of rosemary oil has become popularized, through scientific research. A study by the Archives of Dermatology in 1998 discovered that the use of a blend of thyme, rosemary, cedarwood and lavender essential oils, with carrier oils applied to participants scalp daily, saw improvement of hair growth in treating alopecia areata. In fact, according to the researchers, 44 percent of the participants who used essential oil treatments saw improvement over the study period, compared with just 15 percent of those in the control group who used only carrier oils. The researchers concluded that the results ”show aromatherapy to be a safe and effective treatment for alopecia areata.”
With these findings we can say, yes, rosemary oil aids in hair growth!
