How to Make Rosemary Oil for Hair Growth
There are two methods of making rosemary oil for hair growth: one is a time consuming but traditional process of infusing rosemary sprigs in olive oil, and the other is infusing the essential oil of rosemary into olive oil! We shall see these two methods below:
Method One: Using Rosemary Sprigs
What you need
- If you’re using fresh rosemary sprigs, make sure they do not contain even a single droplet of water! Dry them with paper towels or in the sun, if necessary. Water will make your rosemary oil spoil very fast.
- Now place your sprigs into a mason jar and pour 1 cup of olive oil to immerse them.
- Store your mason jar in a dark cupboard for 2-3 weeks to let the rosemary infuse. Shake the jar occasionally to help release more of rosemary’s compounds into the oil.
Method Two: Using Rosemary Essential Oil
What you need
- Pour 1 cup of olive oil into a mason jar then add 15-20 drops of rosemary oil and mix it in with a disposable chopstick.
- Your rosemary oil is ready for use! Yes, this method is really quick!
