Herb Infused Oils for Hair and Skin

Herb infused oils is my next stop on the journey to healthy hair and skin.

I did some research to find oils that promotes hair growth and decided to infuse those oils with herbs that also promotes hair growth.

My hair thrives on coconut oil, castor oil, and olive oil. My skin loves castor oil, rose hip oil, and ylang ylang essential oil. So why not infuse these fabulous oils with amazing herbs?

I headed to my local Fresh Thyme market and purchased dried lavender, rosemary, sage, fenugreek, and ginger. All of these herbs have been credited for sparking hair growth and healthy skin.

Keep in mind that infusing oils takes time. There are boiling methods to infusing oil, but I decided to exercise patience and allow the infusion to take its time.

Therefore, this blog post is part one. I will publish a part two and three to reveal my results through out the summer. I am a true believer that sometimes you have to allow time for even natural ingredients to work their wonders.

I found these small mason jars at my local Dollar Tree. They’re so adorable. 🙂 But any glass jar, preferably a dark color glass, should work just fine.

There are many infused oil recipes that can be crafted. For my skin oil I choose lavender with carrier and essentials oils that I believe will work great to moisturize and heal and the skin.

For hair growth, I choose to infuse a blend of coconut oil, castor oil, and almond oil with sage, rosemary, ginger, and fenugreek. Again, these herbs are accredited for promoting hair growth and possibly preventing hair loss.

To start I am making small batches of infused oils. I will try them individually (for scalp massages, hot oil treatments, and additions to my hair conditioners) for a few weeks each to see if there is one infused oil that works best.

If all goes well, I will make larger batches of infused oils and add them to my lip balms and whipped butter recipes. Leave me a comment below if you would like me to share a few of those recipes.

The herbs will steep in a dark cool place for about six weeks. Patience is key. I am so excited to use them throughout the summer. So make sure you subscribe to my monthly newsletter and watch for updates and new infused oil recipes!
