I was talking with the CEO of AromOx today and he mentioned that they were having some awesome success with the aromatherapy & oxygen therapy healthy hair system -- but more on that another time. I mentioned some articles that reported rosemary essential oil as a promising alternative to hair growth.
Robert Tisserand reported that in a 2015 randomized trial for hair growth they compared using rosemary essential oil to a standard treatment. (1) The results? The rosemary group saw significantly better results: a greater increase in new hair growth and a significant decrease in hair loss with less side effects.
The effects are thought to be possibly due to the essential oil relaxing the muscles and promoting better blood flow to the follicles in addition to having anti-oxidant properties.
Another trial supports these results with a different kind of alopecia. The conclusions indicated that aromatherapy was safe and effective as an alopecia treatment. The results were significantly more effective than with carrier oil alone. (2)
If you are interested in learning more about using rosemary essential oil to support hair health or using it with AromOx oxygen therapy treatments or you have any aromatherapy or essential oil questions contact Tricia.
