Did you know that I’ve had gray hair since high school? No, really. Since high school. I guess genetics were in some kind of mood with me when I was born because I got the short end of the hair stick. Though I’ve come to terms with my prematurely-aged hair, that hasn’t stopped me from trying to find some natural ways to work on my look. I’ve read a ton about the rejuvenating effects of rosemary. It offers a heap of invaluable characteristics like antioxidants, antibacterial effects, stimulants, and anti-oil benefits that promote increased hair growth, strengthen your hair in general, and allow for a fuller, healthier set of follicles. Since I heard that it naturally works on the grays, too, I clearly gave it a whirl. While I’ve got to be honest and admit that I’m still gray, I at least have a healthy head of gray hair. Seems like maybe Matt should try this instead of me! (Just kidding…not really…love you, Matt)
After working some rosemary essential oil into my weekly routine and receiving such positive benefits from it, I of course decided to share the wealth. One of our new products in the April Out of the Woods Apothecary Box is our Reawaken Massage Hair Oil. Not only does this include some rosemary essential oil, we’ve also mixed in some jojoba and peppermint essential oils. This means that in addition to the positive growth effects from the rosemary, you’ll have the calming, soothing effects of the peppermint, and the rejuvenating benefits of the jojoba.
As the perfect addition to your nighttime routine, add a few drops to your scalp and gently massage in – twice a week before bed works best. This will help soothe your mind, relax your body, and regrow some healthy, stronger hair. Who doesn’t love a relaxing head massage before bed anyway? Now we’ve just offered you the perfect excuse to indulge!
