Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

After chemotherapy about 4 years ago, my hair came back in just fine. However, I noticed last year that my hairline had started receding quite a bit, as I had been put into menopause immediately following chemo. My hair was a bit thinner and receding, especially on the sides of the forehead.

So I blended equal parts of Lavender, Rosemary, and Cedarwood essential oils. At first I used this blend mixed with a bit of V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex. I applied this mixture to my scalp the night before I would wash my hair (a couple of times a week), but then a friend suggested that I could apply it neat (undiluted) even more often.

So then I started putting just a couple of drops on my "high forehead" and massaging it up into the scalp a couple of times a day. Wow! My hair made a wonderful reappearance, and it grew so FAST. Now my hairline has returned to its premenopausal state and is very thick and healthy!

For maintenance....

After I have washed and air dried my hair until just slightly damp (I never blow it dry), I put a tiny bit of Animal Scents Ointment in my palm and mix 2 drops of my custom oil blend with it. Then I distribute that through my hair, which is about shoulder length right now. Occasionally I put a drop or two of the oil blend on my hairline as before, just to keep the follicles happy.

I hope this regimen works as well for you as it has for me. I am so pleased!
