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.

My daughter is 5 and has had a really bad case of cradle cap since she was a baby. It has been so bad that her hair is still very short because it just couldn't grow through it. We had tried medicated soaps and different home remedys like putting warm olive oil on it and wrapping in plastic wrap for an hour then washing, but everytime we thought we were making some headway in the battle it would always come back within a couple days. We had scrubbed the poor girls head till she was in tears and she hated having her hair brushed anymore cause it just hurt.

When I got my Everyday Essential Oils kit I did a search on Oil-Testimonials and saw that some had posted using Lavender Oil, I decided to give it a try. I mixed it 50/50 with Olive Oil and put it on her head then 30 min. later washed her hair. I did this 3 days in a row and the cradle cap went away. The real test was seeing if it came back, which only a very small amount did, a 90% improvement for sure.

I have now started using the KidScents shampoo and it seems to be keeping the cradle cap away and when we have small amounts show up, I just grab the Lavender and dab it on.

My daughter is so excited that her cradle cap is staying gone and her hair is finally starting to grow and thicken up. She said, "Mommy, very soon I will be able to have a pony tail or braids like the other girls."
