Scalp Treatment Oil Recipe

Submitted By:



Scalp oil for alleviating scaly, flaky scalp conditions


Carrier oils:

  • 1 oz. (30 ml.) Jojoba oil
  • 4 tsp. (20 ml.) Neem oil
  • 1 tsp. (5 ml) Hemp seed oil
  • 1 tsp (5 ml.) borage oil
Essential oils:
  • 2-3 drops Palmarosa oil
  • 2-3 drops Lavender oil
  • 2-3 drops Bergamot oil
  • 2-3 drops Carrot seed oil
  • 2-3 drops Cajeput oil
  • 2-3 drops Rosemary oil
  • 10 drops Bay leaf oil (NOTE: this is Pimenta racemosa, which is used for dandruff & hair care. This is not the same as Bay Laurel - Laurus nobilis - which can cause dermatitis.)


Blend and bottle the oils. This has proved to be very helpful to my husband's itchy, flaky scalp, and he loves the smell of the combination! The essential oils are all suggested for eczema, psoriasis, itching, dandruff, oil production regulation, or skin regeneration. The hemp seed oil is 10% of the recipe, and the essential oils together are at most 2%. Shake gently and put a few drops on fingertips to massage into freshly-shampoo'd scalp where there is scaling and flaking. Protect scalp from sunlight, as bergamot can be phototoxic.
