The Essential DIY Herbal Oil Blog

Hi Everyone,

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Today let me share a secret with you all. I got to know this from my beautician Sheena. When ever I was in stress or had a hair damage. I used to go to her for a head massage. She always used an herbal oil for the massage. And asked me to keep the treatment throughout the night. Which I washed with a mild Shampoo the next morning. She never charged me much for her services, so I kept on going to her. One day out of curiosity I asked her, where does she bought this herbal oil from. Since she was a friend, she didn’t hesitate to reveal the secret out. And soon after she shared the ingredients & the whole procedure of oil preparing. It was too simple. But it took some time for me to gather all the ingredients.

Now, I can say I am using the same oil thrice a week for almost 3 months and the results are amazing. Today I will share how to DIY it. First lets quickly check all the ingredients & their benefits to the hair.

Soap Nut

Using soap nut as a hair Shampoo is economical and giving gentler effects to your hair. It makes your hair shinier and softer. It is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal in nature and keeps your scalp free from dandruff and prevents hair loss.


Dried Gooseberry

One of the best things you can do to cure hair loss is to massage your hair with gooseberry oil. It contains oodles of essential fatty acids, which strengthen hair follicles, giving your hair strength and luster. The surplus of vitamin C in gooseberry can help halt pre-mature graying. Not only is gooseberry a great hair conditioner but also an effective treatment for dandruff. If you want to enhance the natural color of your hair, all you have to do is mix dried gooseberry powder with henna powder. One of the best remedies for a dry, flaky and itchy scalp is gooseberry oil. It has the ability to penetrate the scalp deeply and nourish it from within. It stimulates hair growth owing to its high iron and carotene content.


Fenugreek Seeds

Fenugreek seeds not only help hair fall control, but also help in dandruff control as well as make your hair thicken if you use the remedy regularly at least for a month to actually be able to see real results. No it’s not an assumption based on the popularity of Fenugreek  seeds, but a fact tested and tried by many since ages. Its one of the grandma recipes that if you are close to your elders at home, you already would know by heart!

The Fenugreek seeds are known to be used in a myriad of hair problems including dandruff, rough, and dry hair. It is chiefly used to remedy hair loss. The composition of lecithin and amino acids in the Fenugreek seeds is what makes it a fine remedy for hair related issues. The application of Fenugreek seeds offers a setback to hair loss and hair thinning.

Coconut Oil

It stimulates hair growth getting deep into its follicles. It promotes the scalp health fighting against such problems as insect bites, lice and dandruff. It helps in moisturizing dry hair. It adds luster, shine and softness to the hair. It prevents hair breakage and split ends, contributing to hair length. Also, It slows down hair loss.


Curry Leaves

It helps in preventing premature graying, stimulates hair growth ,repairs damaged roots, rejuvenation of hair follicles, strengthening of hair shafts.


How to prepare the herbal oil?

In a big pan put all the ingredients in the given below ratio.

For example :- for 400 ml oil, all the other ingredients will be 50 gms each.

Let it simmer on slow flame for 10-15 min. Later you can strain the mixture & bottle it after cooling down. I prefer to keep the ingredients in the oil. So that all the ingredients can keep on infusing their goodness into the oil.

How to use it?

Always warm the oil before application. With the help of a cotton ball apply the oil into the roots & scalp. Once done with all the sections of hair. Comb your hair nicely and tie it into a tight bun. Always remember, to get better results leave the treatment overnight. Next morning, wash with the mild shampoo. Use conditioner, if required. Recently learnt from a hair dresser a tip for conditioning. Always apply it leaving the roots & scalp area. Reason being the hair near your scalp area are  more oily as compared to the rest of the hair.

First, i am writing such a long blog. Kindly excuse me for it. I Hope all the information shared will be useful to all the readers.

Lots of love
